Bette Jane's Ginger beer: Created in San Francisco, this bottled soda had a good level of potent ginger spice but also has a slight diluted taste overall. Level of sweetness and fizz is appropriate. 3.0/5.0

The Juice Collective Homemade ginger soda: The Juice Collective is a shop in Berkeley that serves meals and drinks to go out of a narrow kitchen.

Blue Sky Jamaican ginger ale: This drink has a more prominent ginger flavor than your typical canned ginger ale, but it's also quite sweet and familiar to those who don't want an overwhelmingly spicy soda. Decent option without high fructose corn syrup. Personally, I prefer spicier and less sweet. 3.0/5.0
