Chumra Machmirim: Chamra Chumra

So Rafi over at LifeinIsrael has a hilarious Chumra of the Month posted.
Definitely take a look, unless you have a something against side-splitting humor.

In which case simply read on for my hopelessly unfunny copycat (non)humor...

(Warning: If you aren't yeshivish or know Halachah or are familiar with Eretz Yisroel beers, move on- you won't get this).

According to Halachah, if one is lacking the sufficient amount of grape juice or wine required for Havdala, Kiddush, etc., one may be yotzei with "Chamra D'Medinah". This, loosely translated, means Coca-Cola. Or Pepsi. Or, as many poskim bring down, BEER. A favorite and oft used option resorted to by many Bochurim- hey, a guy's gotta make Havdalah, right?

So we were conducting such a Havdalah the other night, when some wiseguy decided we should be machmir on Chamra D'Medinah, and only use Maccabee beer. Get it- D'Medinah?

But then again, perhaps we should've had Carlsberg.

They do make the Carlsberg's sold in Israel here, right?
