Shore to Shore
"It's a take on the Dark and Stormy," says Simon Toohey of Lobo Plantation. Toohey says he and fellow Lobo barkeep Jay Gray love medicinal-tasting American-style root beer (not to be confused with ginger beer). "It's an acquired taste, but if it's a taste you've acquired, you'll be drinking it all night long."
