    Please reference the following note are evidence:

    Dear Wife ,
    I appreciate you thinking about me when you saw the Goya brand "ginger beer" at the store and put it in my bag for work. I took a long chug on the way out the door. It tasted pretty good. And then came the after effects. I am pretty sure an entire troop of fire breathing Jamaican jugglers trampled down my gullet. This was followed by several nuclear explosions in the back of my throat. The jamaican midgets then lit a sumo wrestler on fire and rolled him down my throat into my stomach. Which immediately became the biblical definition of hell; A lake of fire. After which they must have tagged my chest with a laser because I felt an immediate explosion in my chest from a napalm airstrike. The Syrian gas attack had nothing on the Jamaican Goya Ginger Beer attack. Please check the ingredient list on the root beer bottle. I'm pretty sure the main ingredient is either habanero peppers, or gasoline .

    Thank you for this wonderful early morning experience,
    Signed, whatever is left of your husband.

    Ginger beer is delicious but its not something I usually drink straight, Its awesome with a Jigger of good Vodka, a squeeze of Lime and served in a copper cup. Its called a Moscow mule and they are the best summer drink ever.

    I have never had a commercial ginger beer that tasted like that crap. I make my own from scratch and mine doesn't taste like that either.

    I once bought crystallized ginger because someone told me it was good, like candy. I tasted it and it was HORRIBLE. I let him have the bag.......which is probably what he wanted in the first place.

    LOL, Ginger beer is NOT root beer. OP, I agree, very nasty stuff. Fortunately, I found this out with a very small sip. Ever try Moxie?:D

    BTW, when you say you make your own, do you mean root beer? Like A&W?

    No. I mean my own fermented ginger beer. I grate a ginger root into a sanitized jar, add brown sugar and water and wait till I see bubbles. Then I strain the liquid into a gallon jug or a couple of two liter coke bottles, add sugar, water and liquid malt extract and let it sit out till the bottles get hard. Then I refrigerate, pour and drink.

    I've had some good ones before. I would say it's avoid GOYA Ginger beer. I wonder if I could remove rust with it :D

    I think you would dissolve the firearm and the rust and your hand in the process.

    Usually its like Root beer. But it can be alcoholic. Theres probably even a commercial craft ginger beer or 2 out there

    If I allow my ginger beer to ferment in the fridge for about 2 weeks it hits about 4% ABV.

    I once backsweetened one of my homeade amber lights using lactose and root beer concentrate and had alcoholic root beer. It was slammin!!!

    Never straight, for Dark and Stormys.
    Ginger beer and high proof Black Seal rum.

    They definitely have straight alcoholic ginger beers.

    Crystallized ginger is good for settling an upset stomach just like drinking a ginger ale is.
