I hope you are getting healthier, and I hope all is well. Here is a Picture of my two amberish Ginger Ales. I definitely need to figure out a better lighting system.
Finally, shot some pictures of my John Ryan 1852.
I didn't realize that I need to finish tumbling the bottom of the bottle until I picked it off my shelf. The bottom was very rough and it needed to be tumbled separately from the rest of the bottle.
I had also forgot that these come in a variety of colors. Bought about 6 different colored ones at the national show back in 2003-2004 in Louisville, KY from a dealer from Florida. Wish I hadn't sold them, but needed the money.

Nice Belfast Ginger Ale. I only have a few but you are right about there being a few different colors available. Thanks for posting that sexy bottle. Here is a group of wonderful colors.

Nice grouping of John Ryans. You referred to them as Belfast Ginger Ale, how come?

Not 100% sure but I read an article years ago saying this and I kinda just always went with it. I have never confirmed this but hopefully this post will stir up some info.

I figured some ginger ale guys would respond with what type of ginger ale was bottled in the south around 1850s? Belfast, dry, American? I am not sure if anything but Belfast was around or if American ginger ale was. I assume American ginger ale was terrible until Vernors in 1866 ish.?
