    We discovered ginger beards preserves at Dartmouth food festival . We bought a jar of the beer and bacon chilli jam . It was so good that we’ve already finished that jar and had to order three more for Xmas . Such great flavour combinations and just the right amount of spice . So far we’ve had it with burgers , sandwiches and cheese and biscuits. We also bought some other ginger beards preserves ( can’t remember which ones) but haven’t used them yet . Really exciting flavour combinations . Ginger beard is a talented man with great taste buds. Far more interesting flavour combinations than anything you will find in a supermarket. I highly recommend.

    Extremely glad I went for the kilo. Delicious!!

  33. Derek G. (verified owner)

    I took a chance and bought a 1 kg jar of this – it’s lovely – not too hot, and you can taste the bacon, with a lovely beery aftertaste.

  34. Clare M. (verified owner)

    The jar is enormous!!! Bought in a small version at a Christmas market this was loved by all so buying this seemed the way to go. Lovely kilner jar so can be reused .. show a photo to highlight this and I would divide up the website into sections ie pickles, gift sets, jams etc to make the website easier and quicker to navigate. With a son with a ‘ginger beard’ we will be back, highly recommend.

    This is astonishing. I’ve not tasted any preserve quite like it in my life. I’ve had it for two days and it’s almost gone. Goes with anything. Very highly recommended. Can’t say much more but just try it!

  57. Monica M. (verified owner)

    Incredible flavour, goes with absolutely everything!

  58. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Since receiving a GingerBeard’s Preserves gift set for Christmas, the Beer Bacon & chilli jam has become a family favorite. We love it with cheeses, in burgers and even on its own with a spoon 😊

  59. Sophie C. (verified owner)

    Love this beer bacon and chilli jam, my second order and is very enjoyable with a variety of foods!

  60. Juliet Seales (verified owner)

    Since trying this, we never put any other relish on our burgers. Family of 4 – all in unanimous agreement – it’s amazing and a perfect match!

  61. Emma Salaman (verified owner)

    Someone bought us a jar of this for Christmas and it was so good we devoured it in days. We had to order some more! You will want this on everything.

  62. Jem (verified owner)

    Amazing yumminess and tastes absolutely delicious. Great service

  63. rickysmith (verified owner)

    What can I say. Sounds like a strange combination but it work, it REALLY works.
    As it says on the jar, goes with everything, even by itself.
    So moreish, its now a must have in my cupboard.

    Do not ever stop producing this.

  64. Whutom88

    Absolutely delicious. Had this with a pork sandwich, and is literally great straight from the jar.

  65. Whutom88

    absolutly delious had this with a pork sandwich

  66. Hannah

    Honestly the best compliment to cheese/a spoon that I’ve ever tasted!

    Beer, bacon and chili jam. Take a moment to say that phrase aloud and let those words resonate whilst you reflect back…

    Yes. You did say it. Beer AND bacon. Two of the finest things present right now on this pale blue dot peacefully coexisting, suspended, within a glass jar.

    This actually exists and yes – it is as good as it sounds.

    I would suggest giving it a try on toasted cheese. “Worcester sauce? Whut’s that..?” you’ll say…and just like it says on the jar; you’ll find yourself with a fork munching it straight from the jar at some point in time.
