About the City Beat Beer Blog

You may be asking yourself, what kind of person starts an entire website about ginger beer? The answer to that question is someone who really loves Moscow mules! The first time I had a Moscow mule I was in love. I didn’t know exactly what flavor component of the drink I liked so much but I knew I needed to figure it out. This was what got me into ginger beer initially. Ever since then I have sought every ginger beer and ginger ale I could find. I’ve had some pretty disappointing ones but I’ve also had many clear winners. I love all things ginger but for me, ginger beer is the best way to partake in its rich and powerful flavor.

Why I Started the Blog

I started the blog because I was disappointed in the information currently available online about ginger beer. There are tons of people having to ask the same questions over and over again without getting a clear answer for the specific products they have questions about. I was also tired of seeing lists and websites rating ginger beer when the person who wrote it clearly never drank any on the list! The goal of my blog is to provide authenticity and valuable information for those who want to learn more about ginger beer.

What Are My Favorites?

Belvoir, Reeds, and The Great Gentleman are three of my favorite ginger beers. I also like Blenheim’s ginger ale. I will likely venture into making my own ginger beer soon.
