    Libya

    Abou Atni, is another non-alcohol beer brewed in Benghazi, Libya

    Yemen

    Reuters reports that: “The Arabian peninsula's only brewery clings precariously to its tradition of producing fine beers while all around Islamic pressure builds against alcohol.

    Workers employed at Aden's Seera Beer factory are shunned for producing alcohol, Families wash their clothes separately and men have trouble finding brides, according to the plant's West German manager, Eckhardt Zitzmann.”
