Zingibeer

Zingibeer Ltd, based in Smithfield Dublin is a family business, owned and operated by father
and daughter Kevin and Rachel Byrne.


We have created a refreshing alcoholic ginger beer, using all natural ingredients and without
the use of sulphites or other preservatives. We are not beer, flavored with ginger, but rather
fermented ginger with a twist of lemon zest and a hint of botanicals resulting in a truly zingy,
refreshing and revolutionary ginger beer. Zingibeer is also naturally gluten free and vegan
friendly!


Kevin Byrne is the head brewer at Zingibeer and has over 20 years experience in food
manufacturing. He studied food science out of school and spent his early career in food
manufacturing. In 2010 Kevin started working with one of Dublin's largest hospitality
groups, learning the on trade business and turning his lifelong hobby of home brewing into
Dublin’s Persistence Brewing Company. With the onset of the pandemic his business of
selling kegs to the on trade disappeared overnight. This quiet time was used to innovate and
perfect his ginger beer recipe and with his daughter Rachel they created the Zingibeer Irish
Ginger Beer. Rachel Byrne started her career in business banking where her interest in
SMEs and start ups was born. This interest; along with a love of all things F&B paved the
way for her later decision to start her own business Zingibeer which she now pursues full
time focusing on branding, marketing and trying to get her head around social media!!
Zingibeer is an exciting new Irish ginger beer brand because…


● We are the first Irish made ginger beer to market offering a lower food mile
alternative to UK imports and supporting the local economy #supportlocal
● Our recipe is unique! The addition of lemon zest and champagne yeast in the
brewing process makes our ginger beer sophisticated, zingy and refreshing.
● We use all natural ingredients and as our product in pasteurised we don’t need to
use any nasty preservatives or sulphites unlike competitor brands
