Lens Artist’s Photo Challenge – Filling the frame

Thanks to Patti for this week’s Filling the Frame challenge. 

You may have thought that there is no alcohol production in the Middle East. But if you did, you’re wrong!

MB was in Jordan a few weeks back, primarily to attend the wedding of a work colleague. Whilst the wedding was a ‘dry’ wedding, involving as it did two Muslim families, beer and alcohol generally are freely available in Jordan. On the day after the wedding, MB killed some time with a local friend visiting two great pubs. Both sold a Jordanian brewed craft beer called Carakale, after the local brewery that makes it.

And a damned fine tipple it is.
