One of the best versions of ginger beer available here in the UK is by an English company called Fentiman's. They have a range of 'traditional' soft drinks, such as dandelion and burdock (a taste from my childhood, haven't drunk it since I was about 9 or 10!). Here's their site

pa, does stewarts make acloholic beverages? if not, then the ginger beer you are talking about is much different than the one i mentioned in the "dark and stormy". i'm guessing it would be more of a spicy ginger ale like "moxie".

Bucky, I think we're talking about the same thing. Ginger beer is a soda and is an ingredient in a Darm and Stormy. The recipe we've always used is:

2 oz Gosling's Black Seal Rum (or any dark or spiced rum)
8 oz Ginger Beer

Pour rum over ice, add ginger ale, and stir.

So yeah, Stewart's only sells soda, but you could use their ginger beer in the Dark and Stormy.

If you ever head down towards Central Jersey (Rt. 1 around Franklin Park) there is still a Stewart's soda stand. They make the best root beer floats!

thanks pa, stewart's floats are great.
the ginger beer i had contained alcohol, like a regular beer. but like i said, i only had it once, and got hammered, so i couldn't tell you much else (except that pink sand tastes funny)

I'm determined to make it back to Bermuda someday (it's on my wish list of places to live if we win Power Ball!) so I'll be sure to give what you had a try.

The next time I go to Pittsburgh will be when it's warm! I only seem to travel there during the winter and I prefer my roads to be horizontal when it's icy outside!
