The Ginja Ninja is Tumut River's biggest seller: a ginger beer brewed with apple juice. It starts out with the brewers collecting 1,000 litre of fresh juice from a local orchard, before the ginger is added at the brewery.
There's heaps of prickly ginger on the nose, plenty of sticky sweetness, some herbal characters and a little back palate heat in there too. For all that – and its 5.3 percent ABV – it could just as easily pass for a soft drink.
