Homemade sodas

I've dabbled in homemade sodas before (root beer extract, water, sugar, and dry ice - fun for the whole family!) but I am becoming very interested in brewing my own sodas (most specifically ginger beer and birch/real root beer) I've done some searching, but I am still unclear as to how to actually do this!

The closest I can figure is basically brewing beer, minus the first fermentation. Instead, just mix the ingredients, then bottle and ferment for a few days?

Anyone who has done this before, please help a dummy out and give me some direction! I will love you forever!
