Vernors, a Michigan classic

An all-American Classic Debuts at Vintage


America's oldest ginger ale was first served nearly 150 years ago, right here in Michigan and we are proud to feature this highly effervescent favorite in Vintage Chophouse | Wine Bar. 

Haven't tried Vernors? Then you probably aren't from around here. 

First served by Dr. James Vernor in 1866 at his Detroit pharmacy, almost 20 years before Dr. Pepper was first served at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Legend has it that Dr. Vernor created the soda and left it in an oak barrel to age four years while he was off fighting in the Civil War. Upon his return he found his creation had taken on a more mellow flavor and a light golden appearance.

The allure of the spicy-sweet, pale colored pop (or soda to those of you who truly aren't from Michigan) soon became so in demand a factory was built along the Detroit River and was distributed to soda shops and restaurants throughout the region. At its inception Vernors was created to help calm the stomach and many Michiganders have grown up knowing the cure to feeling better is just a sip away. 

More than Medicinal

Of course, Vernors is also fun to drink when you aren't sick-have you ever tried a Boston Cooler (named for Detroit's Boston Boulevard, not the birthplace of the American Revolution)? Imagine a root beer float without the root beer and for a fun twist blend the ice cream and ginger ale together for a milkshake-like treat everyone will love. 

At Vintage Chophouse | Wine Bar, our mixologists have created several drinks featuring that creamy pop Vernors brings to the table and should not be overlooked on your next visit.
