I'm going to try to find some up here and buy it. There's supposed to be a few grocery stores that has it but I will have to check it out before ordering on the internet. I also found an Acl with Ginger beer. Never heard of that either. Have you ever tried that one?I liked it when I was younger. I would still drink it today. The 5 best Birch Beers are-

Thanks for the info. Very interesting. Have a coke machine I'm going to fire up . Might be a good way to go!I have had many varieties of it over the years. They range from spicy and sweet to just sweet, but I also have made it at home. Its very easy to make (watch the recipes online since there is an alcoholic and a non-alcoholic version). I also make gingerale (also very easy) with close to the same heat as Blenheim hot variety (which blows away Vernors).
I carbonate mine with a homemade carbonation system much better than marketed ones. It was 100.00 initial outlay for equipment (though can be had on Craigslist for half that if you look). And it only is 15.00 for refill once a YEAR, and I use the system 4-5 times a week on a generic 2 or 3 liter bottle! In other words - also no extra money for special bottles. The system has way more than paid for itself. And I carbonate to 60 PSI instead of 30 PSI like Pepsi Coke, etc.!
Thanks for the tips. That's why I like this forum because of folks like you! Thanks.A link to where I got the plans:

My tank and valve cost 35.00 I think on Craigslist. Oh, don't skimp on the valve by attaching a tire valve tube to a 2 liter bottle cap. Been there, done that. Worked? Yes. But the auto locking on the stainless steel pieces you get (was 20.00 when I bought them on ebay I think) makes it so much easier, the tank lasts longer, and the seal is so much better. More I wish I had known - despite online debate, welding supply CO2 comes form the same original tanks as food grade. I use welding supplies to refill. Forget sports stores who recharge paintball tanks - way too expensive and normally don't handle the size tank you would have. Price up the specialized tanks and bottles of the typical marketed home carbonating units and you will see how much $$$$$$$ you save making one.
