Housemade Ginger Beer?

lipoff | Aug 9, 201011:49 PM     9

I had an excellent dinner at the Highland Kitchen earlier tonight. I love their sparkling limeade, but after a glassful, I wanted something else to drink. They have A.J. Stephans Ginger Beer by the bottle --- one of my least favorite ginger beers. It substitutes excessive spiciness for depth and complexity. But their cocktail menu lists the Mark N Stormy as being made with a spicy homemade chili infused ginger beer. So I asked for just a glass of that. It was so flavorless I wonder if I was even served the right thing, or perhaps the chili and ginger hadn't infused enough. I could barely taste it. Oh well --- everything else to eat and drink, as well as the service, at Highland Kitchen was as spectacular as ever.

But does anyone else serve housemade ginger beer, or serve particularly memorable bottle?
