Beer - Heneket

Come sample my beer! The favorite necessity of Egyptians everywhere! It is made from the choicest bread, perfect for making beer, soaked in water, fermented, and drained. Some has date juice added for special sweetness. People say my beers are almost as good as wine, but come see my wine as well.

Drink it with a straw with a friend! It's thick enough.
