Ginger Ale with real ginger in the Baltimore area

Does anyone know where I can find in the Baltimore area (Hanover, Columbia) ginger ale made with real ginger, not just the flavoring?

      Was just there yesterday, they had Reeds Ginger Beer made with real ginger.

        I can confirm that Trader Joes in Columbia carries Ginger Beer - I picked some up today.

      2. Whole Foods always has real Jamaican ginger beer - both a dark version and a light one that is just like ginger ale.

        1. The Trinidad Gourmet in Waverly makes their own Ginger beer, definitely made from real ginger.
          Though it is not carbonated.

          1. Any grocery store with a decent selection of Goya products should have their ginger ale. It's made with real ginger (but it also has some capsicum in it, so it's spicy).
