Ginger Bee was one of the first flavored beers Jeff created back when he was still a homebrewer. Jeff had never brewed with spices or herbs, so ginger was his first experiment. The first batch was too gingery, so Jeff decided to back off the ginger and add honey. He went down to the grocery store and grabbed a 1lb container of honey, added it to the brew, and Ginger Bee was born.
While brewing, Jeff liked to imagine he was brewing the beer with Ginger from Gilligan's Island--the original label featured a checkered pattern like Ginger's signature outfit.
Jeff's first night fishing trip resulted in a Mako fish marinated in Ginger Bee. It was delicious. As foodies, we love cooking with Ginger bee--try getting a growler and challenge yourself to use it up in a week by making sauces and marinades while you sip this refreshing beer.
Complements a light summer meal - great with sushi and fish.
We love bees. Bees love beer.
These simple truths inspired us to add orange blossom honey and fresh cut ginger to our pale ale. Ginger Bee is balanced but still quirky, as light and fresh as the sun, and totally original. It is pale ale redefined.
