Ginesart microbrewery is located in Ginestar, a village in Ribera d'Ebre, where beer tradition is very old, since, according to the results of several unpublished research that provide information on the manufacture and consumption of beer in lands of Terres de l'Ebre, beer manufacturing with the use of acorns has been confirmed in the ravine Gàfols already in the eighth century BC.

Agriculture is the economic base of the village. Irrigated lands were formerly less common than dry lands but, with the installation of a new irrigation system by the Community of Irrigators, irrigated lands increased significantly. The main cultivated products are vineyards, fruit trees, almond and olive trees. Crafts cane (reeds) and pottery were traditional in the past, although currently nonexistent.

The name Ginestar comes from "Spanish broom" (green bush of twigs, small leaves and yellow flowers), an abundant plant in the municipal boundary. Ginestar comes from an Arab farmhouse where, according to tradition, there was a big Spanish broom, which was known as Mas de la Ginesta, a farmhouse with a few clustered houses. The origin of the population is subsequent to Christian restoration, though tablets of the Visigoth period have been discovered within the municipal boundary.

Ginestar was under the rule of the Templars, from whom it received a town charter in 1206. Once l'Ordre del Temple was removed, the village was ruled by the Hospitalers.

It is worth mentioning the presence of King Martin the Humane in the village in 1409, who was spending some time in Tortosa, as well as Philip II's stay in the village in 1585, as part of his second trip to Catalonia.
