Right down the block from Pike Place Chowder is Rachel's Ginger Beer:
I like ginger and my sister likes beer, so we figured why not?
The interior was bright and cheerful:
RGB offers an interesting menu of cocktails. Unfortunately, only the non-alcoholic drinks can be taken to go. A 12 oz cup of one of RGB's special flavors of handcrafted ginger beer will set you back $5. Special flavors include blood orange, blueberry, white peach, and hibiscus among others.
We got the pink guava and the cucumber tarragon:
I liked the cucumber tarragon quite a lot. As I expected, it was bright and refreshing. The pink guava wasn't bad either. Both had that spicy ginger tang.
Not exactly cheap, but the RGB special flavors are interesting enough for merit a cup or two...once in a long while. If you're nowhere near Seattle, you can also order 32 oz "growler" bottles from their website and have them shipped directly to you.
