Traditional ginger beer is usually a non-alcoholic beverage which is naturally sweetened and carbonated. The natural fermentation of yeast and sugar and prepared ginger spice yields the drink we know today as ginger beer.
Its origins date go back to the colonial spice trade with the East and the sugar-producing islands of the Caribbean.
