"To honour Gamp’s protection of the pub, the landlord created a new brand of beer, Gamp’s Old Gregarious, which tasted so disgusting that nobody has ever been known to finish a pint (there is a one-hundred-Galleon prize to anyone prepared to do so, but nobody has yet succeeded in claiming the gold)."
Gamp's Old Gregarious was a wizarding brand of beer, created by the landlord of the Leaky Cauldron between 1707 and 1718. The beer is named after Ulick Gamp, first Minister for Magic, who decreed that the Leaky Cauldron could remain in operation after the recent passing of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy, provided it conceal its existence from Muggles and its patrons maintain good behaviour.

Despite the attempt to honour the Minister, Gamp's Old Gregarious is exceptionally disgusting. There is a one-hundred Galleon prize at the Leaky Cauldron for anyone who manages to finish a pint of it, a feat that had yet to be accomplised by 2014, about three-hundred years after its creation.[1]
