This is a zine of reviews of ginger ale. There's also an intro, some history, cocktail recipes, and a list of recommended reading. I found the writing style advert-like at times. Certain sentences stuck out to me as sounding like they were from a commercial.
So some of the writing rubbed me the wrong way. But I love the idea of this zine, and it did make me thirsty. The drawings of the bottles and cans of ginger ale are adorable and full of personality. Ming and I really wanted some ginger ale, after reading this zine. So we bought some Reed's and enjoyed it.
Ginger Binge is a neat product, more like a little booklet than a cut-and-paste zine. It would make a great gift to anyone who likes ginger ale or soda fans generally.
