A short digression in praise of GINGER! No, not a friend, but that lovely little spice. If you have a sick tummy, as I did yesterday, there is nothing like a Ginger brew to settle it back down. They DO exist in sugar-free versions, but, if I can work it into my points, I prefer real sugar if I'm feeling punk. I note from the "Reed's" website that they make a "nausea brew" as well as a 55-cal version. Whatever, it's great ginger beer! Ginger beer is generally stronger-flavoured than the "ale." As far as what I can get around here, when I have neglected to stock up on "beer," is the Canada Dry ale. It's more "gingery" than other brands. http://www.reedsinc.com/brews/
Anyway, aside from settling you tummy, it's very comforting.
