Your next Moscow Mule might just be twice as good, thanks to a new product released this past week by Sprecher Brewing Company.

Sprecher’s newest beverage is a masterful brew of natural ginger and lime flavors in a low alcohol malt beverage.

"Sprecher Ginger Ale has long been considered tops in its category," says Jeff Hamilton, president of Sprecher Brewing Company. "We decided to see what would happen if we used it to create a low alcohol malt beverage. Based on early customer feedback we’re pretty confident our brewmaster created a winner."

Cool lime, piquant ginger and a dry finish give Sprecher’s Hard Ginger Beer a crisp, refreshing drinkability that is perfect on its own or as a mixer in cocktails. Unlike most ginger beers, which are non-alcoholic, Sprecher’s contains 4.7 percent alcohol by volume.
