Carakale Brewery is a Jordanian microbrewery founded in 2010 in the town of Fuheis near Amman. It was founded by a Jordanian called Yazan Karadsheh as Jordan's first microbrewery.[1][2] The brewery is named after Caracal, a mammal that is native to Jordan.[3]

History[edit]

Carakale's first production beer was a blond ale meant to serve as entry-level brew to create a craft beer culture in Jordan, where it previously didn't exist. The brewery sold its first bottle in late 2013 and is now available in most of the approximately 600 stores, bars, restaurants, and hotels that sell alcohol in Jordan.[4]

In 2017, Carakale entered the United States market with distribution in bars in Arizona and New York City. In an effort to distinguish itself from the crowded microbrewery market in the US, Carakale's "Dead Sea-rious" gose beer includes salt from the Dead Sea and pink grapefruit from the Jordan Valley.[4]
