It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Anyone Remember Stoney's?

Do any of my Aussies remember Stoney's Ginger Beer?  I remember when I was growing up that sometimes my Dad would drink it.  I tried it as a child and absolutely loathed it as it was soooo gingery.  Well, as an adult I adore the taste of ginger, and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a bottle of Stoney in the fridge at a petrol station in Cape Town.  

Grabbed a bottle and a newspaper, and was thrilled that the taste seems to be just the same.  Hated it then, love it now!  I think it could only be improved by adding a splish splash of Absolut and pouring it over ice.  Yum!
