The Pirate says that his favorite beer is "the next one." Anyone buying?

If you do get the "soda pop" kind of ginger beer, it is really good served up with a shot of dark rum and a squirt of lime. A "Dark and Stormy". Just right when sitting on a beach or deck.
CG, I've tried neither.
I'm pretty sure I saw the pop sort of Ginger Beer the other day.
Now I'm curious, I'm going to have to go back and look.
That dark n stormy sounds very good, although I no longer drink 'hards' nor does Mister K~girl, albeit the occasional snoot of Bailey's over rocks for him, me not so much.
I do imbibe at the ballpark, what ever's on tap, preferable Blue Moon at Chase Field.

I'm not really a beer drinker, but I do drink it on occasion.

I like:
Tuborg (Brewed in Denmark, I'm not even going to try the stuff I can get at the supermarket that is brewed somewhere in Africa.)
Carlsberg, now that we get the imported-from-Denmark stuff again. When a local brewery had a license to brew it, it was nasty.
Tsing Tao, when I'm in a Chinese resto.
If I'm eating Indian and they have British beer on tap, Newcastle Brown Ale or Harp.
Keith's IPA
And the best beer I ever tasted was called Viking Beer. It's only sold in Iceland. Apparently it's one of those that don't travel well.

We are currently looking for a local, micro-brewery beer that we might like. I want to cut down on the miles my beer has to travel.

Not a huge beer drinker, but I do have a few favorites (in no particular order)
  • Goose Island Honkers Ale
  • Magic Hat #9
  • Dos Equis Lager (best beer to drink ice cold on a hot day)
  • Surly Furious
  • Indeed Brewing Shenanigans Summer Ale
  • Grain Belt Nordeast

Some are local, so I don't expect anyone's heard of them.

Think of it this way: If you enjoy the flavor of ginger in foods (cookies, Asian cuisine, etc) you will probably like ginger beer. If you avoid ginger-flavored foods, save yourself any special trip to the store and the ensuing parting with the money.

Re: ginger, one of my favorite uses for the candied kind is in nice moist scones with bits of ginger and apricot. Hmm, looks like more baking in my future soon.

If you ever see it, Gosling's Ginger Beer is awesome.

So true Steve. Paired with the Gosling's dark run, it's like vacation in a glass. When we were shopping a few days ago we saw import Jamaican ginger beer. Picked up a 2-litre to try in Dark & Stormy drinks.

I've been drinking the ginger beer solo lately. It reminds me a lot of the ginger beer I've had in Britain. It has a little kick of heat, and I find it actually helps my arthritis a bit.
