Your Mumby’s you have in front of you now follows in the footsteps of Gosport’s very own Mumby’s Ginger Beer. This unfined pale ale is hopped with experimental British hops that possess a Ginger aroma as well as being infused with Ginger root.
Charles Mumby set up business in Gosport in 1849 as a chemist and manufacturer of mineral waters a stone throw from where our brewery is today. At the back of his shop was a large borehole accessing natural water in the chalk subsoil.
As is tradition in Gosport, Charles traded his bottled waters and sodas with the Navy in Portsmouth. We’re proud to take on the name Mumby’s and continue to trade with the Navy, Portsmouth pubs and along the South coast today. Mumby’s Ginger Pale Ale is brilliantly balanced, the ginger hit is fantastically refreshing, making a very quaffable 3.9% beer. Seen in cask, keg and soon to be bottle - completely unfined and best served by the lashing.
