Source for D&G Old Jamaica Style Ginger Beer?

jeauxb | Jan 25, 2010 10:16 PM

I've been looking for D&G Old Jamaica Style ginger beer in cans with zero luck. Does anyone have a source around the bay area (south bay and/or Santa Cruz ideally)?

I'm not interested in "alternatives" like Reeds, that's got pineapple juice in it, and isn't anything like real ginger beer. Bundaberg, Buderim, Maine Root, Regatta and Cock & Bull are OK, but don't compare to D&G. Gosling's Stormy is reasonable and comes in cans, but it's not available on this coast either. I've tried everything at BevMo, Cost Plus, New Leaf, Safeway, but no luck so far.

I've found bottles online, but they're way too expensive, don't taste the same, and bottles don't survive bumpy road trips or boat trips very well (ginger beer is also a great cure for seasickness).

Greatest appreciation if you can suggest a source.
