The difference? Ginger beer is actually brewed and fermented while ginger ale is essentially a carbonated beverage made from water and ginger. Ginger beer often has much more of a "gingery" flavor and because it's fermented, is less carbonated.

A good ginger beer is a gift from the Gods. They are few and far between.
