  • When grades mattered. I like it!

  • More on Hermann’s Ginger Ale, made right here in Washington DC. Some cool, old ads and photographs included.

    • So Herrmann’s became Tiger Ginger Ale (“The Ginger Ale with a Bite!”). I remember it well, it was the old fashioned, very spicy version of ginger ale that burned your throat a bit. I don’t think it is made anymore, but was still around in the Nineties, I believe.

    • Thanks for the link — those old bottles are very cool!
