Established circa 1864, the Warwick Examiner and Times was printed on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Also established in 1864, the Warwick Argus published on opposing days i.e. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Ultimately, in 1919, an opportunity to combine and publish daily was realized with the Examiner purchasing the Argus and the Warwick Daily News was formed.[3]

In 1968, the owners, the Dunn family, decided to amalgamate with a number of other newspaper owners to create the Provincial Newspapers (QLD) Ltd company.[4]

Ginger beer

Traditional ginger beer is a naturally sweetened and carbonated, usually non-alcoholic beverage. It is produced by the natural fermentation of prepared ginger spice, yeast and sugar.

Its origins date from the colonial spice trade with the Orient and the sugar producing islands of the Caribbean. It was popular in Britain and its colonies from the 18th century. Other spices were variously added and any alcohol content was limited to 2% by excise tax laws in 1855. Few brewers have maintained an alcoholic product.Current ginger beers are often manufactured rather than brewed, frequently with flavor and color additives. Ginger ales are not brewed.

Ginger beer is still produced at home using a symbiotic colony of yeast and a Lactobacillus (bacteria) known as a "ginger beer plant".

Ginger beer has experienced a marked increase in popularity in recent years accompanying the popularity of cocktails based on it, such as the Moscow Mule and the Dark 'n' Stormy.
