    It is too sweet for me with little ginger bite. Tack on the added caffeine and I give it a pass.

    Re: Best ginger ales/brews for bourbon/rye

    I prefer the local Cotton Club "less sweet" Ginger Ale. It is dirt cheap and damn good. It has a good ginger taste and is not syrupy like many others.

    I'll try to remember to bring a case down to the sampler.

    The Ale 8 I bought 2 years ago came from Liquor Barn in Louisville at Fern Valley Rd. It was the first place I looked. I have seen it in Columbus, Ohio too!

    Wish I could get Ale-8-One around here. In the mean time, Vernors and rye does the trick every time on a hot summer evening.

    I orderd Ale One, and I got it finally in Germany. I shared it in the rehearsal room...with my bandmates....

    Re: Best ginger ales/brews for bourbon/rye

    We have Gosling's ginger beer and it's ok. I actually prefer the sweetness of a ginger ale to the spiciness of a ginger beer for a mixer.
