Opus Brewing is a mobile brewery startup, based in Ramat Gan, Israel. At Opus, we have a simple, but unique, attitude in our brewing – find the freshest, most unique Israeli ingredients and craft imaginative beers with them. That’s why we start every week with a trip to the shuk, and then decide what to brew.
At Opus Brewing, we also focus on sharing our love and knowledge of brewing beer and cider. We offer a wide range of beer-centric events including- home-brewing workshops, beer tastings, happy hours, gastronomy/beer pairings, and much more. The way we see it- bring a man a beer and he will drink for an hour. Teach a man to beer and he will drink for a lifetime!

The Story Behind the Goat
In the year 361 CE, a general who would come to be remembered as the last pagan emperor of Rome ascended to power. History would come to know him as Julian the Apostate. Julian was a complex character, full of brilliance and flaw. He was a warrior, a philosopher, and a poet. One of his most famous poems shows his disdain for the drink of choice of the Germanic armies he had spent his life fighting. In his, poem he says of his favorite libation, wine- He smells like a nectar. And of beer, he boldly declares- You smell like a goat. We love this moment in history, and the goat in our logo is a reclamation of Julian’s slanderous affront to beer.
