Elixir of the gods
I am on a quest to find out if Rodenbach beer is kosher. Rodenbach is an amazing Belgian brown ale, and was a rare treat prior to me keeping kosher as it is not readily available in the States.
You may say - but isn't all beer kosher? Typically - yes. However, Rodenbach is stored in wooden casks. Oftentimes, these can be old wine casks, which would make the beer not kosher.
I am not sure how to go about this investigation. I am pretty sure that no American certification agency would know anything about it - it is not a very common beer.
I am thinking that I may email the Chabad in Belgium and see if they know anything about it. Any ideas from my readers are appreciated!
