Ginger Baby

Developing Ginger Tipple has been an amazing journey. Starting in our cellar with a plastic amateur brew kit, we went through proving yeast overflowing everywhere to 30 liter vats falling over during fermentation. The fist version was cloudy, anemic looking, 12% strong and pretty nasty when compared with today’s version.

There was no recipe for this sort of drink – and I won’t tell you mine – so there was a lot of trial and error.The fist version was cloudy, anemic looking, 12% strong and pretty nasty when compared with today’s version.

I have had the privilege  to meet some wonderful people who were willing to help a real novice like me. I have also tasted some of the best beers in the world. You have to understand that there are practically no orthodox Jews in the brewing industry and for most of the people who have helped me, I am the first religious Jew they have ever met. I never felt any prejudice or discrimination.

Beer Unites the world!

When a critic writes a good word about Ginger Tipple, I feel like a parent when his child’s teacher calls him to tell him how wonderful his son is. A negative word makes me ask, why am I doing all this? Although, my favorite comment is from a zythologist at a beer tasting competition “I’m not sure I like it, but can’t stop tasting it”.

Like a child, the work is hard and endless, usually thankless and ends up costing more than you budgeted for – but worth every bit of it.

  1. My husband has started making cider here at home. He would like to start selling it in supermarkets but the volume he has made requires finding somewhere to get it put it in bottles. I have bee following your company since seeing an article in Flanders Today and I am hoping that you can maybe help us fond somewhere that might be interested. He has about 2000 bottles worth of product.

    • Hi Anna-Marie

      There are breweries out there which will bottle for you, but you have to bring the product to them, and they are not cheap. 2,000 bottles is not very much (I know it sounds a lot). If you want to bottle in 75c champagne bottles or in smaller bottles, you can order everything from, if you have a VAT number, you can register as a professional and receive a 15% discount. For smaller bottles you will need a bottle filler tube Brouwland tubes.
      You can order bottles from them which come in boxes you can re-use for storage and shipping.
      Or contact me and I will tell you where to buy a palette of bottles for much less.
      Get a friend or 2 to help, it can be good fun. Design a cute label and off you go.

  2. I see you don’t monetize your site, don’t waste your traffic,

  3. This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep
    a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.

    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!
