Snack Bonding – Cock ‘n Bull Ginger Beer

7 Jul

Since I do not drink any sort of alcoholic beverage, my self appointed duty for The BBTB is to cover beers of the Root & Ginger sort.

Starting off this section with a banger. Cock ‘N Bull is by far my favorite ginger beer to date. I first had one of these maybe three years ago when I found it at Central Market, and try to treat myself with one from time to time, as I don’t want the magic to go away. On first drink you immediately get a sharp bite followed by a light sweetness that nicely counteracts the gingery goodness.

The history of the brew reaches across the world from Moscow to New York to Hollywood where it was served from the restaurant of the same name. Founded by Jack Morgan, the Sunset Strip restaurant was favored among celebrities & non celebrities with a common bond of its English styled interior and good food. Morgan has been credited for popularizing Vodka in America with the mixture of the spicy ginger brew mixed with Vodka, called the Moscow Mule.

You can see the bottling process here (warning: kind of boring), Cock ‘n Bull Bottling.

This is my favorite ginger beer currently and I wanted set things in motion correctly for this side of Snack Bonding.
