Is old tyme root beer with the pirate on it the same thing as the barqs with a new name or is that a different product? if it is what happened to old tyme and can it be found anywhere?

the bottle I have (old tyme ginger beer w/ the pirate) is from the mid 80's, it has "MADE IN CANADA" and "DISTRIBUTOR IN USA L. SCHARF INC., ALPINE N.J. 07620." If the distributor's still in business maybe they would know.

Bumping this with some current info. I am also trying to track down an Old Tyme soda, but I am looking for the cream soda. Many years ago Giant Food (of Landover, MD) had this in at least some of their stores in glass bottles, but they stopped carrying it. The current distributer/bottler for the US appears to be Good-O Beverage Company (http://www.good-o.com/oldtyme.htm) of Bronx, NY. Has anyone seen this carried by any stores in MD, DC, VA, WV, or PA?
