Luciano: Lebanese cuisine gets a kick with Beirut Beer

I called Frank Abdnour, a full-blooded Lebanese who recently sold his Spotted Cow ice cream restaurant. When he picked up the phone, he was making kibbeh with his mother, Frieda, who at age 98 was running him ragged.”She works me like a rented mule,” said Abdnour, 58.Though the Spotted Cow didn’t sell beer, Abdnour and his social posse are known to have a beverage now and then. After we chatted, he called around to his Lebanese pals but couldn’t find one who’d recalled seeing a Lebanese beer lately in Peoria.
