Annex Ginger Beer was inspired by a desire to elevate the sullied reputation of sodas, and create a delicious alternative to artificially flavoured pops. The completely natural craft ginger beer is made with cane sugar, lemon juice and fresh-pressed ginger, culminating in a spicy soda that drinks perfectly in a Moscow mule or on its own. Since the first batch in 2017, the beverage has quickly built a good reputation, with countless breweries, bars and restaurants across Alberta stocking the flavourful creation. And Annex has doubled down on soda, opening an Annex Soda Mfg. bar within its Annex Ale Projects space last month.
