    .. Hard to find these days - especially in our remote village. These soft drinks are akin to other root beers as a class but distinctly different from the recent contemporary offerings.
    .. These old recipes have something solid to offer the palate yet carry an ineffable quality that needs to be sampled to be appreciated. They never really vanished, and are making a small comeback.
    .. The deep red color of the Boylan's offering comes at the expense of FDA RED 40 - oh well, at least it's Kosher and caffeine free. It's birch oils, (distilled from the sap,) linger on the tongue and provide a creamy / near minty, sensation - both in taste and feel. This stuff has been around since 1891 and has a small but dedicated following. The bottle label is nicely stencil-painted on glass. We grab it whenever it's available.
    .. Ginger beers may be older than sarsaparilla or root beers, or birch beers. They were originally brewed as alcoholic beverages and occasionally mixed with other brewed beers. Often, today , the soft drink is found in mixed drinks in the place of ginger ale.
    .. This fermented beer uses a fungal-bacteria symbiot = a composite organism consisting of a fungus, a yeast, and a bacterium. The soft drink is carbonated. Both are described as "tangy" and having a bite. The Cock 'n Bull product is a modern variety from post war Los Angeles. It is the secret ingredient in a proper "Moscow Mule" which was invented using this brand.
