How to Make Ginger Beer from Scratch

There are two types of people in this world: people who like their ginger beer sweet, subtle, and unassuming, and people who like their ginger beer to kick them hard in the back of the throat. (I guess there are also people out there who don’t like ginger beer, but for now I’m going to pretend they don’t exist.)

How to Make Ginger Beer from Scratch

Ginger is always delicious, but it has many health benefits too, so why not double your pleasure. Enjoy your beer along with the health benefits of ginger.

Ginger is a great warming spice, so this beer is excellent to have around during those cold winter months that are quickly coming upon us. Most people drink ginger tea, but we say switch it up a little!

Our 3 Favourite Ginger Beer Recipes:

1.We loved this step by step recipe from Food52 on how to make alcoholic ginger beer from scratch with pictures and great instructions.

2. We couldn’t afford that trip to Jamaica to escape the winter blues, so we decided to bring Jamaica to us. This Cook Like a Jamaican Recipe is great cold, so crank up the heat, put on some reggae, close your eyes and sip. Are you in Jamaica yet?

3. Lastly for those of you who, like us, get confused by too many steps and ingredients this Seattle Seedling recipe is just perfect.
