Funny, I seem to remember the term BIRAH used in a
different sense. Back when I was living in Jerusalem,
and when I would come home from a long day working at
my chosen profession as a GANAN, I would sit down on
our balcony, overlooking REHOV "King George" with a
cold BIRAH in hand (usually a Tuborg or a Carlsburg
"KHETZI") and think, "life is good!" ;-)
