    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.

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

    Luckily its available everywhere.

    Does ginger beer come from Iowa City?

    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.

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