History

See also: Ginger beer

Ginger ales come in two varieties: golden ginger ale and dry ginger ale. Golden ginger ale, dark colored and strong flavored, is the older style. The drink came from Eastern Europe[citation needed], where it has been known for centuries, and became popular in USA during Prohibition when dry ginger ale was used as a mixer for alcoholic beverages as the strong flavor of golden ginger ale was undesirable. Dry ginger ale quickly surpassed golden ginger ale in popularity, and today, golden ginger ale is an uncommon, and usually regional, drink. Vernors, Blenheim, A-Treat, Bull's Head, Chelmsford, and Red Rock are brands of golden ginger ale, while Canada Dry, Schweppes and Seagram's are major brands of dry ginger ale.

Ginger ale occupies a small niche in the soda market. Though in some localities ginger ale is unavailable in vending machines and soda fountains, the drink is a staple on supermarket shelves, in bars, and on airlines.
