Royal Jamaican Ginger Beer

Brewed with conviction and steeped tradition, Royal Jamaican Ginger Beer is authentically brewed and bottled in Jamaica. The time-honored recipe creates a “unique, crisp, refreshing, full bodied ginger taste.” Traditionally this brew is recognized as a premier among gingers for its quality of “flavor, oil content, and appearance,” the standards to uphold when other gingers are assessed.home_banner_bottles

Spicy food, heavy creams, or rich foods, the beer can eve provide an interesting twist for barbecue and is often considered ideal for marinading pork or creating ginger sauce.

Venice Duck Brewery


Two bartenders from Venice Beach were inspired by a local legendary man who went out partying in the Venice canals and woke up the next day on the sidewalk covered in ducks.

With this inspiration and love for good beer they incorporate the Venice culture into the beers and truly believe in “the power of the flock, [their] community.” Part of the Venice Chamber of Commerce they like to refer to themselves as the “unofficial” sponsor of Venice events.
