That wasn't the case a year or so ago before Gosling's introduced their own brand of Ginger Beer. Barritt's was hard to find and pretty much hit and miss as it seemed we almost never got it at the same place twice.

We rejoiced when Goslings hit the market and even more so when it became so common around the bay.

Barritt's might be the real thing, but Goslings is the most suitable substitute we've found (by a long shot) and we tried a LOT of substitute Ginger Beers.

That said, Dark and Stormy's are still not my favorite boat drink. I categorize DnS's among the "self regulating" drinks. Self regulating drinks are those that by their nature will stop you from over consuming. The ginger gets the best of me after a couple of DnS's.
