Default Favorite Ginger Beers

Around me, I can get goya, Saranac, Goslings, and Appalachian Brewing Company. If I want a nice bite, I go for the goya. Otherwise, I like Goslings the best, followed by Saranac.

So, what do you like?

If it has high fructose corn syrup in it I won't drink it. I like Barrits in the glass bottle with real sugar.

anyone ever make there own?

I'm having a go at making some alcoholic ginger beer, might be dangerous as a mixer but im sure non alcoholic would be cracking.

My personal favorite is Maine Root Ginger Brew. I also like Gosling's; it has a nice bite and is a bit dry in my opinion.

Grace ginger beer here in Canada paired with Gosling's Black Seal makes a great dark and stormy.

I really love Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer. It's a great mixer and great on it's own.

Bacardi 8 is a great rum to have around for everyday use. I agree it is a great go to rum.

Barrett's bottling company was Bermuda based for many years and my first Dark n' Stormy was made with their alcoholic brew back in the early 70s at the Blackhorse Tavern in St Davids. Just a bit of alcohol, but enough to add real punch to the drink. Barrett's decided to stop making Ginger Beer or went out of business so, Goslings bought the rights and maybe the bottling plant. That's my favorite.

Gotta bump this thread as I've been experimenting with different rums and ginger beers all summer to perfect on a D&S recipe. I think I've decided on the Gosling Black Seal is gonna be my go to rum (Cruzan Black Strap is just too flavored for me), but still trying ginger beers. I've tried Reed's Extra Ginger, Gosling's, Fentiman's, Maine Root, Barritt's in a can and Fever-Tree. Of those my favorite by far is Fever-Tree but it's hard to find and pretty expensive ($6 for four 7oz bottles at the only place I've found it here in Chicago). Have yet to try Barritt's in a bottle.
