Packing a punch

For those who like their carbonated beverages on the bold side, Brooklyn Crafted may be their new favorite drink.

WAG was recently sent a sampling of the made-in-New York artisan ginger beer, a beverage made with 100-percent fresh, unfiltered ginger pieces. Flavors range from Extra Spicy to Mango, from Sugar Free to Earl Grey to Lemon Lime.

Bottles come in two sizes, ready for sipping – or incorporating into mocktails or cocktails.

Our first reviewer had this to say: “Wow. Crisp… bubbly. A very nice sip,” but noted a strong ginger aftertaste. Another said it packed “a bold, unfiltered ginger kick.” Boldness was a definite theme in the comments. This is clearly not a drink for shrinking violets or those with who like things subtle.

Sound like your kind of drink? If so, the suggested retail for the 12-ounce bottles is $1.99 or $6.99 for a four-pack, while 7-ounce bottles are $1.49.
