Bottled ginger beer that doesn't suck?

Ok, I was recently introduced to good ginger beer at a local Jamaican restaurant, and I love the stuff. Even without rum in it.

Problem is, No really, this is vitally important they make their own, which makes it hard to stash in the fridge for those days when I'd can't/don't feel like driving over to Huron Village for a tasty beverage. But the bottled stuff I've gotten in the stores is just nasty - too sweet, too little actual ginger flavor, blech - can anyone point me towards a decent brand so I don't have to drink my way through too many blechy 4-and 6-packs to find something drinkable?

I used to work in British health food store, we stocked this really nice ginger beer, it came in a glass bottle.. I can't remember the name of the company now.

Jamaican Root Ginger Beer is the best drink ever. I always buy it from the shops. It's the fizzy stuff and when served chilled is the best drink in the summer.

EDIT: It's this one

How about you make your own? Nothing beats homemade.


1 pound ginger
8 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 1/2 quart water


Puree ginger and water in blender.
Let it sit for a day.
Add sugar & mix (add more or less sugar based on your taste)
Best served with crushed ice.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

That would certainly be cheaper than going to Ortanique, at any rate (although there's no way in hell I'd ever match their jerk).

But while I am almost always up for trashing the kitchen, like I said, I'd also like to have something on hand for when time and energy are at a low ebb
