Ginger Ale

Ginger AleGinger ale is a carbonated soft drink flavored with ginger.

Ginger ales come in two varieties: golden ginger ale and dry ginger ale.  Golden ginger ale is dark colored, generally sweet to taste, with a strong ginger spice flavor. It is the older style and there is little or no difference between this and non-alcoholic versions of ginger beer.

Many believe golden ginger ale is a form of ginger beer brought into North America by migrants from Eastern Europe, where it had been known for centuries. Golden ginger ale, like ginger beer, is mainly consumed as a soda type drink in its own right.

Dry ginger ale (paler, and with much less of the ginger "kick") became popular in the United States during the Prohibition era when it was used as a mixer for alcoholic beverages as the strong flavor of golden ginger ale was undesirable.  Dry ginger ale quickly surpassed golden ginger ale in popularity, and today, golden ginger ale is an uncommon, and usually regional, drink.

Vernors, Blenheim, A-Treat, Bull's Head, Chelmsford, Buffalo Rock, Sussex and Red Rock are brands of golden ginger ale.  By contrast dry ginger ale is produced on a vast scale for national and international consumers.  Canada Dry, Schweppes and Seagram's are major brands of dry ginger ale.

Ginger ale is rarely sold through in vending machines or soda fountains. The drink is marketed as a mixer for alcoholic beverages and as such is a staple on supermarket shelves, in bars, and on airlines.
