    Ginger beer for Moscow Mules

    Anyone have any suggestions for a good ginger beer for Moscow mules? Court ave brewery makes them with their own ginger beer and I really liked it so I might try to see if they sell it in bottles. Thought I'd check here for suggestions as well.

    Re: Ginger beer for Moscow Mules

    I have bought them all for my wife. Even the expensive jamaican brand. She only drinks Sarnac.

    Luckily its available everywhere.

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: Ginger beer for Moscow Mules

    I've gotten my Court Ave growler refilled with ginger beer before, not bad. Stumbled upon Trader Joe's the other week. Instead of a 4/6 pack it comes in a large green bottle with a rubber resealable stopper. Its a little stronger than most other varieties.

    Hyvee usually has Sarnac which is decent. I prefer **** and Bull which they have occasionally in season.

    C-o-c-k and bull ginger beer is the original one that started the mule many years ago. Look it up an it is a pretty cool story. Our use Barrits ginger beer comes in a can or bottle.

    Re: Ginger beer for Moscow Mules

    Dumb question, but are Moscow mules relatively new? Or something that is back en vogue? My significant drinking days are long behindme.
