Beer and the NIV

In an earlier post, I decried the TNIV for translating shekar as "other fermented drink" rather than "beer" in Numbers 6:3. In revisiting the issue today, I noticed that "beer" is actually found many places in the NNIV as a translation for shakar--just not, apparently, here. Well,  I give the CBT credit for a small improvement anyway.

Here is an article which addresses the necessary ingredients that would have been used for making beer in the Bible times.
