This is a wonderful Large English Victorian stoneware flagon that once held Ginger Beer probably mixed with a variety of exotic flavored herbs .  The original recipe requires only ginger, sugar, water, lemon juice and a fungal-bacteria symbiote known as a ginger beer plant. Fermentation over a few days turns the mixture into ginger beer.  Brewed ginger beer originated in the mid-18th century.
