Happy Hanukkah, y'all! To toast the holiday, NPR looks into the history of Jewish beer, highlighting, among others, Lompoc Brewing's "8 Malty Nights" porter. According to Jews and Booze author Marni Davis: "Beer is one of the ways that Jews can become part of the culture that they're in, and they can do it as Persians, they can do so as German-Americans in the beer gardens of Cincinnati, and they could do it today, as producers of cheeky beers that are coming out of craft breweries right as we speak."
