Be glad you’re not a homebrewer in Bahrain

Ran across this little snippet of news from beautiful, sunny and sandy Bahrian:

TWO INDIAN men have been accused of operating an illegal “cottage industry” of brewing and selling alcohol.

One is accused of setting up the brewery in his house and the other of obtaining, possessing and selling alcohol to customers and being an accomplice in manufacturing alcohol.

The first man admitted the charge and the second said he bought alcohol from him, but only for his own use.

Both men, in their 30s, were further remanded in custody by the Lower Criminal Court, which adjourned the case until Monday.

The defence lawyer for the first defendant unsuccessfully requested the court to release his client on bail, but under a travel ban.

Yikes. The guy must be a worse homebrewer than me.
