London, May 30 (ANI): Ginger beer is going to be this summer's most popular drink with the beverage fast gaining a devoted consumer base.

The competitively priced drinks have already bested many well-established beers in terms of sales.

Sales of Crabbie's ginger beer, which has four per cent alcohol and costs 1.99 pounds for a 500ml bottle, have shot up since its launch in February.

Frank's ginger beer, also four per cent alcohol, costs 1.79 pounds for a 500ml bottle.
