10’000 years in the making, the LPA marks the return home for beer. From the land where beer and human civilisation were born, comes a new brew that is a marriage between Western brewing tradition, Eastern complexities, and a sublime expression of the Lebanese Renaissance. It was inspired straight from the Lebanese spice markets. For decades there has been little choice in the diversity of Lebanese beers. This beer provides an alternative for the Lebanese population, with ingredients such as za’atar, sumac, mint, sage, anise, and chamomile. The use of such herbs and spices makes this distinctive craft brew truly Lebanese.

Davros (2611) - Melbourne, - JAN 28, 2013
Pours deep amber with a large head. Smells like lebanese bread, with a massive thyme hit. There’s a little sweet malt underneath but lebanese bread is the perfect descriptor here. Flavours follow along the same line but the herbs also add some astringency and medicinal notes. A metallic character works its way in too. Nice idea, and the aroma is great but it doesn’t quite work. Perhaps if the base beer was maltier.

Poured amber-gold in pint glass. Spicy aroma and very spicy taste. Too spicy for me, but I was forewarned by the deScription. I agree with the reviewers who suggested food with this beer. I would have enjoyed it more than I did.

Nische (1696) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle at Tabbouli. Clear golden with white head. Spicy aroma with herbs and grain overpowering. Same in taste, very herbal and spicy with some fresh citrus behind it. Very original, but a little bit too much. Paired quite well with the food though.

Pyrmir (5247) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2015
330 ml bottle at Meza. Deep golden with white head. Aroma is very herby, thyme, sage and almost nothing else. Taste is similar, very unbalanced.

Tognetta (650) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 12, 2015
Ambar levemente turva, boa formação de espuma, média persistência. Aroma temperado, alecrim, apimentada, hortelã, leve dulçor caramelado. Paladar com intensidade menor, mas segue o aroma, sem muito destaque. Corpo aguado, baixa carbonatação. Diferenciada, vale pela curiosidade, mas é fraquinha ...

mcelocp (9) - USA - NOV 4, 2015 does not count
No princípio, sente-se as especiarias no aroma apenas. Aos poucos, o paladar de ervas e camomila persiste e, tal como na culinária libanesa, acaba somando, sobrepondo e pedindo mais. Refrescante, exótica, remete mesmo às incursões aos mercados de especiarias. Uma pale ale que foge da curva, e surpreende! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I tried this since it said there was a taste of za’tar, which I am quite a big fan of. It turned out to be too powerful but it is nicely different.

Bottle from Copenhagen. Interesting beer lots of herby notes, although they take over a bit to mouch
