bars with real ginger beer in manhattan?

i've had a craving for a real good dark & stormy - the last place i want to used ginger ale-- but they did add a lot of fresh ginger to make up for it... but.. it didnt satisfy the desire without the good ginger beer. (their rum choice wasnt all that good either lol)

any ideas?

  1. Milk and Honey, Pegu Club, Flatiron Lounge and I THINK Death and Company all make their own ginger beer. East Side Company Bar has a whole list of ginger beer drinks, however, they use bottled ginger beer which doesn't quite pack the same punch(or kick). Milk and Honey by far has the spiciest ginger beer with the other three following closely behind.

    1. I was just going through the menu for the Mandarin Hotel's Lobby Lounge restaurant and noticed that they have "Fentiman's Ginger Beer, organically brewed ginger beer classically meant to tickle your senses." Not sure if that is what you're looking for.

        1. I was just at East Side Company Bar the other night. Had a moscow mule and a dark & stormy and they were pretty darn good!

          I love a good ginger beer cocktail as well ... yum.
