Newbie in town: Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer is now available in Hawaii. The beverage contains 4.8 percent alcohol, hence “alcoholic” in its name. Just FYI, most ginger beers don’t contain alcohol. Imported from Edinburgh, Scotland, the beer comes in pint bottles and can be found at Ewa Pantry, Tamura’s and Whole Foods for $5.99-$7.99. Cocktail recipes are available on the company’s website at crabbiesgingerbeer.co.uk.

Fantastic deal: Purchase a $1 Frosty key tag at Wendy’s and you can get a free Jr. Frosty every time you make a purchase this year. Ninety cents from the $1 will go to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Key tags are available only while supplies last, so hurry. At press time only the Wendy’s in Kapo­lei, Kunia and Wahiawa had key tags. Check with your neighborhood Wendy’s for availability.
