Barritt's Ginger Beer?
I have declared the Dark and Stormy to be the official beverage of Summer '10, but I've found other brands of ginger beer to be too gingery (Maine Root) or not gingery enough (Reed's). Does anyone know where I can find some Barritt's in Houston?
Can't help with Barritt's but you might want to give Fever Tree ginger beer a try - it's rather tasty. Available at Spec's I think.
You can always check Spec's online: http://www.specsonline.com/ but the inventory listed there isn't always accurate. I've tried about a half dozen ginger beers from there but don't believe I've ever seen Barrits.
Another place to find sodas not widely distributed here is Cost Plus World Market. It's a much smaller selection than Spec's.
I'm constantly amazed by what I find in supermarkets, too. I guess sometimes managers stock a particular product in response to a customer's request. That doesn't help much in the short term, though.
If you find it let us know; I'd like to try it too.
I don't know of a Caribbean grocery store here, per se, but you might also check the international food aisles at one of the large Fiestas.
