Where can I buy ginger beer?

My husband wants to find ginger beer to make a "dark 'n' stormy" at home. Does anyone know where I can find this in the Boston area? I have already tried the Wine Gallery in Brookline and multiple grocery stores.

  1. I buy it regularly at Martignetti's in Brighton and Blanchard's in Allston.

    1. many supermarkets carry it too. I get it regularly at my local Hannaford and Market Basket (Stewart's brand). I love making Moscow Mules and spinoff using bourbon (bourbon, lime juice and GB).

        Thank you both. I haven't found it at Stop and Shop, but I'll try another grocery store or Martignettis.

          Have seen it in the Stop and Shop in Somerville. Check the aisles that have imported food i.e. Mexican, Jamaican or Brazilian. You should find it there as it might be considered a Caribbean item.

      2. The Harvest in JP carries a great, Maine-brewed ginger beer that would make a lovely mixer. Goya makes a sharper, less cloudy ginger beer, and it's sold at Stop & Shop's & numerous corner stores in Dorchester/Roxbury/JP. Irie, the Jamaican place in Dorchester, makes their own and it is delicious.

          izzy's in cambridge also make their own ginger beer

        2. my MarketBaskets usually have Eli's and sometimes Barritt's.

          1. Believe it or not, Liquor World, in the Porter Sq shopping center has a good brand. I can't remember the name, but remembered the packaging as being the same type used at Eastern Standard.
