Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale

5.9% ABV

If you're any kind of connoisseur of craft beer, you've heard of Not Your Father's Root Beer. The alcoholic sassparilla caused quite a sensation over the summer and folks clamored to grab highly coveted six packs when the botanical beer became available in liquor stores and supermarkets.

Small Town Brewery, makers of that unusual craft beverage, are at it again. This time founder and brewmaster Tim Kovac has crafted an alcoholic ginger ale that we're currently loving. Kovac used a gruit-inspired recipe along with his proprietary technique of infusing botanicals into the brewing process to create an adults-only ginger ale that's tasty, refreshing, and smooth.

Because Not Your Father's Ginger Ale is actually brewed with natural ingredients from the plant world like roots, herbs, spices, berries, fruits, and flowers, the flavor is unique and different from flavored malt beverages that get their taste from flavoring added after the brewing process.

Sure you can sip a can of this refreshing ginger ale on its own, but it's also an amazing mixer. Fill a copper mug with a couple shots of your favorite vodka and top it off with Not Your Father's Ginger Ale for an extra alcoholic Moscow Mule. Pour a can into a chilled glass and top it off with a large scoop of vanilla bean ice cream for an adults-only Boston Cooler.
