We recently received samples of four varieties of Brooklyn Crafted Ginger Beer. It's quite tasty on it's own, but also offers a good kick for your favorite cocktails as well. The all-natural unfiltered crafted sodas really pack a punch - especially the extra spicy version.
Also, a recent addition to their craft soda line are 7-ounce flavored varieties. I tried the mango and earl gray, both of which had that strong bite that you find in the traditional ginger beer, but with the additional flavor infusion that takes it to another level - and with real bits of ginger that you can see.
If Moscow Mules are on your New Year's Even menu, Brooklyn Crafted ginger beer will take it up a notch from what you're used to.
