  • About

Ginger beer was a staple drink at fetes and fairs in the 1910s and 1920s. A favorite for the servants and the family alike, it was cheap to make, easy to keep, and refreshing to drink. We see it at nearly every village occasion on, but also at more intimate settings, such as Harold Levinson’s picnic with Madeleine Allsopp in season 4. This recipe was originally published in The Field, Britain’s premier outdoor sports and country magazine.
