My Summer is shaping up ...

I mean, THEY look happy Massachusetts and Bermuda teaming up to keep you happy.

Going to college in Worcester Massachusetts, I would drive by the big inflatable (as opposed to "deflatable") Polar Beverages polar bear (his name is Orson, I'm told) off the highway, and think about their ginger ale and cream soda, which I thought one could only get in Worcester. Wormtown. Woo-ville. Woo-stah. The City of Several Hills. Now, the home of Gosling's Stormy Ginger Beer (or gingerburr, for onions)...I didn't know that their name was 'Polar'This is good news.

What can I say, other than that your blog is an invaluable resource?

I look forward to hunting this down in the wild and domesticating it with a dose of rum.

Deviate from Barritts?!? then again, it is a local product. hmmmm...
personally, i like extra lime in my D&S. my brother-in-law adds brown sugar to his. (!)
he obviously doesn't have the sugah mind you...

thanks for the tip!

You're so right about the lime.

Berta the Bermudan ("Ber-mew-jin" actually) adds this, which I repeat, verbatim: It is not a Dark'n Stormy unless it is made with Barrett's Ginger Beer...we Bermudians do not mess around with our national drink..."black rum and gingerburr is all you need to pitch a hot"
