Ginger Beer/Ale

Ginger Beer

Ginger beer is the stronger, grandaddy of the ginger soda world. Having come first, ginger beer is made from first fermenting ginger (don’t worry, it has less than 0.5% alcohol and therefore is not considered to be alcoholic by the FDA). This process makes for a much stronger ginger flavor with a slight carbonation resulting from the fermentation and a fresh ginger kick in the finish.

Ginger Ale

Ginger ale differs from ginger beer in taste and in how it’s made. Ginger ale is very light and crisp in taste but packs no bite because it is not made from fermented ginger, rather ginger flavor is added to carbonated water with other flavors and sugar.

Types of Ginger Beer & Ale We Offer

Reading Draft Ginger Beer

We call this old fashioned PA soda our Goldilocks of ginger beer, not too sweet, not too spicy, just right.

Cock ‘n’ Bull Ginger Beer

On the sweeter side, marketed to be a mixer soda. Claims to be the original mixer of the Moscow Mule.

ABC Ginger Beer

Another local PA soda but with a much lighter taste. This is a crisp yet very earthy ginger beer, you can almost taste the ground the ginger was grown in.

Maine Root

This ginger beer is newer to the game than most of it’s competition but it packs a lasting taste. Maine root is all-natural and uses real ginger for a pure taste you’ll feel in your nose and won’t forget.

Natural Brew Ginger Ale

This uniquely blended pale ginger beer combines a strong natural ginger flavor with no bite.

Red Ribbon Minted Ginger Ale

Another PA soda, Red Ribbon’s ginger ale is a real treat that perfectly balances sweet spearmint with crisp ginger.
