Is ginger the new black? Ginger-flavored beers sneak into summertime

When I think of ginger, I usually think of two things. First, the little paper wrapped candies you can pick up at Trader Joe’s that are equal parts addicting and mouth-burning. Second, the strange yet ever-present pink stuff on the side of sushi plates. I don’t normally immediately think of beer.

It’s becoming clearer each year that this trend is here to stay, and that the dollars that people curious about local beer bring with them to spend are worth nurturing. I was asked to check out the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel in Portsmouth, NH because of their beer-friendly reputation – and I was glad to oblige.
