Subject: Ginger ale/beer -- what's the difference?
Date: 1990-01-17 15:47:21 GMT

I like ginger ale OK, but I much prefer ginger beer. What's the difference?

I've made ginger beer, and it came out very nicely. Is there some
ingredient that makes the distinction between `beer' and `ale', and why are
they called beer and ale, anyway?
