Ginger beer/ale has a long history.  It's been popular since Greek and Roman 
times, used in eastern & western recipes, and the contemporary nonalcoholic 
soda pop called ginger ale. Today, I happened to make some honey candied 
ginger from an old Chinese recipe translated from a 6th Century manual. 
Ginger has many great properties both as a hot & flavorful spice and 
stimulant to the appetite & digestive tract. The list of other medicinal 
properties is long too. 
What "period" beer are you referring to?
