    I just found this label from a Sam Adams I got on the cruise ship. I stuck it in my wallet and forgot about it until now. WTF language is it? I assume it's Hebrew since the ship sailed out of New York.

    Probably but I don't speak Hebrew. Yiddish and academic ahrameic I can do but I never learned Hebrew beyond that needed for school.

    The line in the middle with the star on it says Parev (kosher) at the beginning (on the far right of the line)

    Definitely Hebrew. The top line says Samuel Adams.

    סמואל אדמס

    Except it should be right justified. Check it out in Google Translate. :hat:

    There is also an English K on the line so the line probably says "kosher for Passover"

    Maybe it was packaged for sale in Israel, or for a Jewish community here?

    Things like beer and wine are generally kosher. The seal usually guarantees that the bottling plant is certified clean to produce kosher drinks.

    Maybe that particular cruise is popular with the Jewish community home and abroad? Clearly if they carry beers with hebrew stickers... the demand must be there.

    There was this one family with this annoying woman who we always seemed to be seated near. She never shut the fuck up. One night she was bitching to the waiter because her food was cooked on the same dish or the same oven as something that wasn't kosher and she was chewing him out but I don't think he had any idea what she was babbling about.

    If she's such a hardcore jew shouldn't she have stayed home on Saturday instead of going on a cruise?
