Buffalo Rock Company is an independent Pepsi bottler based in Birmingham, Alabama. It was founded in 1901. In addition to bottling Pepsi products, the company produced Grapico in 1916, a grape-flavored soft drink, and a ginger ale under its own brand name.

Buffalo Rock ginger ale is considerably darker in color and has a stronger ginger content than is customary. Some customers use the term "ginger cola" to describe the taste. Buffalo Rock and Grapico are sold throughout Alabama, parts of Georgia and the panhandle of Florida.
