Where did Ginger Beer come from?

Ginger Beer originated in England from its predecessors Mead & Metheglin.

Metheglin was a naturally carbonated, yeast-fermented honey beverage which often included spices such as ginger, cloves and mace.

Originally Ginger Beer also included special yeast for fermentation and was sweetened with honey, molasses or sugar cane. After brewing the Ginger Beer was poured into stone bottles then corked to maintain the natural effervescence.

Up though the mid-1800’s many Ginger Beer contained a significant amount of alcohol (about 11%). Limitation in England in 1855 required that non-excisable beverages contain less then 2% alcohol which led bottlers of Ginger Beer to dilute their brewed concentrate with carbonated water.
