Sound Interesting. I have had beers that used ginger as an ingredient. Details please.

'Ginger wine is a fortified wine made from a fermented blend of ground ginger root and raisins which was first produced in England. It is often fortified by being blended with brandy (especially cognac). Ginger wine can be drunk with ice ("on the rocks"), or without ice (either "neat" or "straight up"), and is frequently used as an ingredient—along with whisky (typically a blended Scotch whisky)—in a "Whisky Mac" (the shortened form of "Whisky Macdonald").[1] Ginger wine can also be served mixed with other beverages, such as lemonade, ginger ale, or bitter lemon. Ginger wine is traditionally sold in green glass bottles, although the word "green" may or may not appear on the label.'

Tis rather pungent on it's own. Very drinkable though :)

We need to do a shopping spree. It's right by CCB, and they have this...

plus, this thread needed a bump. Shame it being page 5. On a forum full of drunks too.
Ahh our favorite beer of 2012! lol /beer snob

We've done Total Wine before, they have an awesome selection of beer there. Love it! I can't walk out of there spending less than $50. Lots of individual bottles which makes it fun for tasting parties. :)

Yeah, I'm thinking I could easily drop a Ben in there on my first visit. I've already picked out like 8 750s I want.

:lol: We still haven't tried the 2014, waiting on Carys and Mal to get back to break one open.

You love the high percenters, eh? Hmm... I'll think of some more tasty ones and send them your way.
