Spent the morning at the South Melbourne Market where a small bottle shop, Swords Select, was tasting two ginger beers. Unlike most ginger beers in the states these even had booze in them! The first was actually a Lime Cider with ginger which I really enjoyed and bought a bottle to enjoy later. The second was traditional ginger beer with a definite bite.
This shop also sold more of the refillable swing top bottles of wine we had seen earlier in the week – he said they last about a year before you open it which surprised me. It will be interesting if this fad joins the wine on tap or wine in a bag trends we’ve seen popping up in Seattle.
