Galilee Brewery

The local brew house offers a true treat in the form of quality beers which are brewed on location, in addition to the largest selection of Israeli micro-brewery boutique beers!

Beer isn’t just recreational – it’s a culture within itself.  That’s the epiphany Mr. Alon Riftin had; a pilot who often visited the U.S., where he was exposed to the existence of brew pubs. In 2006, as the result of a personal acquaintance with Avihai Greenberg (Carlsbergs’ brew master), Alon took his first steps into the world of home-brewing, a world he proved to be quite talented and proficient in as his beers took part in prestigious competitions (Samuel Adams, Long Shot) and even rewarded him with several prizes.

Dining Room

This is Moran’s original communal dining room that served the entire kibbutz daily for many years. Now, as a result of the privatization process our kibbutz has undergone in recent years the residents eat separately in their private homes while the dining room serves guests only.

Every morning between 8:00 am – 9:30 am, all guests are invited to treat themselves to our dairy based breakfast buffet which includes a variety of pastries, salads, cheeses, fish, hot beverages and more.

In the remainder of the time we recommend dining in any of the many culinary establishments in our area (check out the restaurant page here on our website), though you are also welcomed to order in, via the local catering service with which we co-operate.

For groups only – we offer the option of contacting us in advance to schedule a group dinner in the dining room.
