ABOUT THE BEER
The rich sweetness of demerara sugar, undercut with a zing of fresh lemon and finished with warm fiery ginger, make Umbrella Ginger Beer uniquely delicious and easy to drink.
This 5%, independently-brewed ginger beer, is the perfect choice to quench your thirst on a summer afternoon, and a refreshing way to add some variety to a beer menu—it even works brilliantly in a cocktail.
Unlike other ginger beers on the market, Umbrella Ginger Beer is fairly low in sugar, this not only allows the natural spice of the ginger and the sharpness of the lemon to shine through, but also means it has a refreshing, dry finish, making it moreish and thoroughly drinkable. Umbrella Ginger Beer is made from all natural products and is suitable for vegans. Because of the natural ingredients, the bottles contain a natural sediment—in many craft beers the sediment in the bottle is made up of yeast and producers will advise you not to agitate the liquid, so that the sediment stays in the bottom. Umbrella brewing painstakingly filter all the yeast out of their ginger beer, so that all that remains in the sediment is the pressed ginger root. By turning the bottle over you wake up the ginger which gives Umbrella Ginger Beer its unique fiery flavour.
Thanks to its low sugar content and its all natural ingredients, Umbrella is distinct from other alcoholic ginger beers, its refreshing dryness and natural warmth make it a great addition to a summery beer menu. It’s a unique alternative to beer and cider that has enough flavour and depth to appeal to fans of both. We think Umbrella works brilliantly alongside a light, fruity bitter or IPA, and a smooth, refreshing pilsner or golden ale, to make a well rounded summer selection; but with the spicy warmth of the hand-pressed ginger, this is a great drink for the winter months as well—we can even serve it mulled.
Ginger beer is a common ingredient in a lot of highballs and cocktails and with its deep, full flavour, when used in place of non-alcoholic ginger beer, Umbrella adds an extra kick to cocktails in more ways than one—it lends a new richness and complexity to classic drinks like the Dark & Stormy or the Moscow Mule.
Umbrella Ginger Beer is available through our mobile craft beer truck hire service in bottles which come in cases of 24 and you can order as many or as few cases as you’d like.

ABOUT THE BREWERY
Umbrella Brewing are a London based brewery started in 2016 as a joint venture between Umbrella Projects and master-mixologist-turned-master-brewer, Matthew Armitage.
The Brewery is entirely independent and self funded and is run out of a former Victorian industrial building in upper Holloway, North London.
Umbrella Brewing’s mission was to create the best alcoholic ginger beer on the market, whether they did or not is a matter of opinion, but we certainly think their product is the best we’ve tasted.
Since debuting their ginger beer in 2016 Umbrella has also started producing an all natural cider, this cider is available on draft through our mobile beer truck hire service.
