Ginger Beer

Ginger beer is a sparkling drink that is flavoured primarily with ginger and sweetened with sugar or artificial sweeteners. The drink originated in the UK in the 18th century, and was a mixture of ginger, sugar, and water, to which was added a yeast based starter called "ginger beer plant" and then left to ferment. Nowadays, however, the alcoholic version has been mostly superseded by a soft drink version carbonated with pressurized carbon dioxide. This version does not contain alcohol.

Root Beer

Root beer is a carbonated beverage popular in many countries, especially in North America. It comes as both an alcoholic drink and non-alcoholic soft drink, although nowadays the soft drink predominates.
