Wild Ginger Brewing Company has unveiled its Wild Ginger Alcoholic Ginger Beer.
“Alcoholic ginger beer has been around as long as the art of brewing. It was only during Prohibition that it turned to soda,” says Wild Ginger Founder Jamey Grosser in a press release. “I’ve always loved ginger beer, but could never find an alcoholic version, so I decided to make one myself.”
Wild Ginger leads with a subtle sweetness, the company says, before a spicy climax with no beer aftertaste. Wild Ginger is right at home on the rocks with a lemon or lime, sipped straight out of a cold can or enjoyed in a cocktail such as the Moscow Mule.
Wild Ginger Alcoholic Ginger Beer (4% ABV) is initially available in 12-ounce cans in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and North Florida, with national availability expected by year-end. A six-pack will retail for approximately $8.99-$9.99. Additional products are planned for release in the fall.
