Finding the good stuff can be difficult.
For a while, we were ordering a 24-case of Fevertree Ginger Beer from Amazon. (free shipping with Amazon Prime)
Whole Foods carries Fevertree products, but not the ginger beer – at least not last time I checked.
Obviously, there are brands other than Fevertree. Good luck.July 11, 2012 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm #504144
I really like Bundaberg ginger beer so I usually buy it at World Market.
Other good brands are cock and bull & fevertree.
Other places that I know stock ginger beer: Hills market & Weilands.
(Hills usually have gosling which has HFCS) and may have Fevertree.
Probably the other independent markets like Huffman’s and Andersons too.
You can buy Regatta ginger beer online

I use this from Whole Foods for my Dark & Stormy’s (usually with Kraken).July 11, 2012 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #504146
The Reed’s products are easier to find but personally I don’t like them.
Double Happiness usually have Cock and Bull behind the bar and I’ve seen a few bars serving Fevertree.July 11, 2012 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #504147
thanks everyone!July 11, 2012 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #504148
I usually go to Weilands. My current favorite is Fentimans Ginger Beer which is available at Weilands. However, Bundaberg and Goslings are a close second. I just got a new carboy to attempt another batch at home.July 11, 2012 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #504149
The North Campus liquor store (right by the Dube) now has Gosling’s ginger beer, which is pretty much what you need for Dark and Stormys.July 11, 2012 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #504150
Market District also has a decent selection of ginger beer. I second Hungry Woolf’s suggestion of World Market – sometimes it’s even on sale there.
You can also make ginger beer pretty easily –
Any ginger beer labeling itself as “Jamaican” deserves a quick peek at the ingredients – often lime & cardamom (and other flavors) are significant players.July 11, 2012 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #504151
Kroger in grandview has it.July 11, 2012 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #504152
Also available at Giant Eagle, and Trader Joe’s
