Iraq: Alcohol in Iraqi Kurdistan

“In Ankawa, the Christian quarter of Arbil, there are so many alcohol shops with fake beer brands made in Turkey. There are also real beer trademarks, but that's also from Turkey (Efes). In the ‘Muslim’ part of Erbil (Hawler) you can also get alcohol, but it's mostly ‘sealed’ off with a small wall so that other people cannot see you drinking” writes Transnational Middle-East Observer in this photo post on alcohol in Iraqi Kurdistan.
