Old bottles better
Great product Original Stone Ginger beer. Buy lots, Much better than Bundabergs pepper water, BUT I don't like being conned. The new bottles only contain 330mls against the old ones with 375mls. Now only get 1/12 glasses instead of two for the same price. That's a big drop. The scungy cost accountants have struck at quantity again. You would be better off charging more rather than this sneaky move to your customers.
I've had a lot of trouble finding Saxby's Ginger Beer of late. It no longer seems to be carried by Coles stores near me.
I bought Bundaberg as a substitue - awful! Well, certainly not to my taste.
I came to this website to check that Saxby's was still in production and am so relieved that it is. It is my drug of addiction!
I'll be checking out Woolies tomorrow.

Saxby's gingerless beer
While being a member of a family of ginger beer lovers, I guess you could say I'd be a tough cookie to impress......
My husband bought a 4 pack from Coles & said "this is what we Smith's were raised on, I love this brand." He poured us both a glass & with our first mouthful we looked at each other with an expression of do i swallow or spit it out !
Disappointment to say the least.
You may have noticed that there isn't even a star rating, this is because there was no ginger taste or bubble in the drink. (Much like drinking water & sugar) ...
Saxbys is Australian made and owned. It's the best Ginger Beer available in Australia and perfect on a hot summers day, accompanied by fresh fish and chips. No.1 in my opinion!
Saxbys Ginger Beer and Diet Ginger Beer are made with real ginger (unlike others). It has a true old fashioned ginger beer taste.
Coles and Woolworths fail to stock this product on a regular basis - thank you IGA and Franklins!!
We picked up this ginger beer because it was on sale, and I'm glad we bought it. Its great tasting, plus its an Aussie make. It is nice and refreshing when you dont want to have the usual taste of cola or lemon drinks. Its a very light and refreshing taste and still has the fizz which is great. Since it comes in a multipack, its easy to buy and store in the fridge so that I can enjoy it nice and cold. This is a great tasting light ginger beer which has a lovely hint of ginger which is so yummy and not over powering.
I love the fact that this is...
Questions & Answers
It’s too sweet for me. I can really taste the sugar. Was hoping it wasn’t as sweet at Bundaberg GB but sadly it is. Might have to try making my own.
Yes agreed it's far too sweet. Possibly an attempt to aim the product at the younger age group, which seems to expect all "soft drinks" to be sweet. You can of course make your own GB using a "GB plant" but that takes a bit of know how & experience & even then it's hard to end up with a "dry" drink.
