Spectacular ginger beer. Sharp ginger bite. Not too sweet. Spicy! Was it one too many bland meals? Or a disagreement over whose hot pepper was hotter? Either way, we owe a big debt of gratitude to Wilbur Scoville. In 1912 he devised the Scoville Organoleptic Test, a method for quantifying the spiciness of food and drink into what he called Scoville Heat Units. As we agonized over our recipe, we used good old Wilbur’s scale to make sure Q Ginger Beer has the spiciness we're all looking for. So thank you Wilbur. Gluten free. Learn more at QDrinks.com. Oops! It's not actually a root. It's a rhizome!
