Sons of Kurdish immigrants to Sweden, the two came together in a bid to persuade the world to associate their people with their beer, Ava Zer, Kurdish for "gold water," rather than the violent conflict with ISIS in Iraq and Syria.It may be just a business venture thousands of kilometers away, but Kader, 31, and Nujen, 33, are a rare collaboration among Kurds not on the battlefield.
