Ginger Beer must be shipped with 2-day service. We make shipments every Wednesday on orders received by Monday 10pm PST.





About the Company
Simple ingredients are key. Fresh lemons, strong roots, organic cane sugar and good water made intimate with one another and brewed to taste here in Seattle. Partnering with several local farms we’ve befriended through Seattle farmers markets, we brew with care and attention to detail, offering our original recipe and rotating seasonal varietals such as Strawberry Rhubarb, Asian pear, Cranberry-Apricot, Blueberry, and Carrot Beet.


We believe in this brew.
While living and working for several years in Europe, we were introduced to proper ginger beer. Brewed in many neighborhood pubs and served on tap, the British ginger beers we fell in love with represent a level of quality and craftsmanship we felt was absent in mass-produced American sodas. So, after returning home to the PNW, we set ourselves to the task of mastering what we believe is the best ginger beer in the world; fresh fragrant and not too sweet.

We use fresh ginger, organic dried ginger, organic fair trade raw sugar, organic sultanas, fresh lime juice, organic dried chilli and filtered water. That’s it. No preservatives, no artificial anything.

We batch-brew and bottle-condition, so it is the real deal. And it won’t explode in your garage.

The ginger beers are available at selected farmers markets and shops in Auckland, and are served at many Auckland landmark cafes including Landreth and Co and Ripe Delicatessen.

Product Spotlight: Mac’s Ginger Beer


Ginger Beer is a great New Zealand tradition. But unfortunately it is a tradition which frequently involved that came in a large fizzy drink bottle and had a propensity to explode because your auntie used too much sugar. Mac's Ginger Beer on the other hand is perfectly crafted with the ideal balance between sweetness and spiceness. The result is more refreshing than a trip down down the water slide on a scorching hot summer's day.


Ginger Beer has been made at Mac's for longer than we can remember, and our latest has all the warm spiciness of real ginger.

Flavor Spotlight: Old Jamaica Ginger Beer Twist


Old Jamaica has added two limited edition flavors to their Ginger Beer line.

About Old Jamaica

Old Jamaica brings you the full-on flavour of the UK's No. 1 ginger beer and the authentic Jamaican taste of our sodas.

1525 - Ginger was first introduced to Jamaica

1585 - Jamaica ginger was the first oriental spice to be grown in the New World & imported back to Europe

1790 - England was exporting ginger beer to Canada and the United States, which was made possible by the advent of pressure-sealed stoneware jars

1900 - The British army introduced the drink to the Ionian Islands

1908 - Desnoes and Geddes Limited was formed in 1918 by Eugene Peter Desnoes and Thomas Hargreaves Geddes

One morning, two youngsters came upon each other in the offices of West Indies Mineral & Tablewater Company in Kingston Jamaica. "My name is Thomas Hargreaves Geddes" said the newcomer. The other smiled "Glad to make your acquaintance! I've been here a bit. I'm Eugene Desnoes" And so for the first time, Desnoes and Geddes shook hands. Neither of them could have imagined that this would mark the beginning of an extraordinary partnership.

They shared what seemed to be then an impossible dream: to build a brewery to produce a Jamaican beer of international quality. It would be more than a decade before that dream would become a reality

1927 - Desnoes & Geddes opened it's Surrey Brewery in Kingston

1952 - Paul Geddes (son of the company founder) becomes Chairman of the company

1958 - A new brewery was opened in Hunts Bay, This was the most modern brewery in the Caribbean

1988 - Old Jamaica Ginger Beer was introduced to the UK
