I well remember Gardners Ginger Beer. It used to be marketed in Quart bottles. A relative kept a pub at Hoaden, who used to give a little boy many glasses of the same.  I have never tasted anything similar since, i believe it was brewed in some form.

There is a host of data and anecdotal articles on the Brewery on this Link.

Gardners Ash Ales
« Reply #1 on: November 17, 2015, 14:17:36 »
A little thing that has been niggling away at me for some time. By all accounts, by the time I started into serious drinking, around the early 1960s, Gardners Brewery at Ash had already been taken over by Thomson & Wooton and was confined to producing soft drinks. Yet I have a clear recollection of quaffing a pint of `Gardners Ash Ale` at some pub or other. If it was a T&W house then the product was certainly not a rebrand of their own product, which I always found to be rather sweet and not generally to my taste. The `Gardners` I remember probably sticks in my mind because it was pretty fearsome stuff, I was not minded to seek it out again. Anyone have any thoughts on this long gone brewery?
