Where can i find Ginger Beer

I'm looking for ginger beer in montreal, similar to what i've tasted in the UK or Australia. I got completly addicted to the stuff there, but can't find any here. I'd like to find alcoholized ginger beer but i would settle for just soda.
Do you guys know where to buy some? I have a car, willing to go anywhere for it, even a restaurant. I'd be so grateful for any help :)
(just to be clear, looking for ginger beer, not ginger ale)
Ta (the pie place) on Parc imports bottles of ginger beer from Australia. I haven't bought one from there in awhile but they were $5-something a bottle.
4520, Avenue du Parc, Montréal
I don't know of other UK or Australian ginger beers available in Montreal. I personally really enjoy the Goya ginger beers because they are spicy. They can be purchased at most Latin grocery stores.
Reddit's Montreal subreddit has a great list of microbrews stores: http://www.reddit.com/r/montreal/comm... .
I remember buying some, but I'm not sure where. If I had to guess, I'd say either Peluso or Supermarché Rahman Le Paradis de la Bière, as those are the stores I visit most often.
Two followups to give.
I went to BioTerre and sure enough, found the ginger beer. It is non alcoholic, but made in UK for it's the style i wanted. Tastes excellent although a little sweet for my tastes.
At 1.70$ a bottle, i simple bought everything they had on shelf!! So i'm sorry to report that they are now out of stock ;-)
And finally, decided to make my own ginger beer. It's ready now and tastes pretty good, with alcohol content of 7.5%. It didn't take too well to the Co2 (i kegged it, coudln't be bothered to bottle) so it is a little flatter then i would've hoped. However, i think my yeast worked a little too well as it's not sweet at all. I'll try to figure out how i can change it to make it sweeter. I'd like something in between Fever Tree's ultra sweetness and the tartness of mine.
