Stewart's or IBC for me. But, given the choice, I'll usually go for the Stewart's...
Hosmer Mountain Sarsaparilla soda. The big brands can't touch the local stuff.
I remember that the Birch beer in New England was clear , I havent drank soda in over 8 months though.
root beer! usually IBC or A&W; there's also an A&W restaurant 5 minutes from my house, so i'll definitely be going there a lot when i start driving.
honestly, i'm not really picky about which brand of root beer i get, just as long as it has that 'zing' to it.
i've yet to try sarsaparilla- what's it like?
I probably like Stewart's best.
Anyone noticed that A&W Root Beer has a rather unique taste? (I think they add a little Maple syrup)
Henry Weinhardt's Root Beer consumed here.
this is obviously a poll question.
I didn't make it a poll, because I didn't want to exclude any local brews that folks might care to nominate -- I like Stewart's, but I'm always looking for something new to try!
Used to love Root Beer, lately it all seems too syrupy-sweet to me. Lately I'm more into Ginger Ale. Hardly ever get a chance at Sasparilla 'round these parts.
oh i gotcha...its all about Saranac root beer. i think its a rochester thing, i dont really know though. stewarts and ibc are way good too. any root beer or birch beer or cream soda that comes in a glass bottle is gonna be way better than anything u can buy in a 2 liter.
Hosmer Mountain soda totally rocks. It's one of the things I miss about back in the Hartford area.
I love a good root beer sometimes. Stewarts and IBC are both really good. I don't find birch beer or sarsparilla often, but I like good ones. I'm trying to remember where I bought some birch beer that was red. It was sometime in the past couple years. That stuff was delicious. Sometimes I find a local-brand ginger ale that's made from an old-style recipe, and you can really taste the ginger.
I like a lot of root beers: A&W, Dad's and Sprecher. Lots of micro brews are making their own root beers, too.
I'll tell you one thing, though. I don't think there is a tastier DIET soda, than A&W root beer.
Sasparilla. Root beer is nice too, though I've never had Birch beer..
Just strike the "root" from the name and I'm all set!
+1. the only good one i've found around here is Reed's. good stuff! just the right amount of spice for me. it's also a good ginger beer for Dark & Stormies (just add Gosling's Black Seal Rum).
i've also had quite a bit of the Goya Jamaican Style stuff... which is extremely spicy. as far as i remember, the Stewart's stuff is also quite spicy.
on the rare occasions that i actually have root beer, i'll enjoy some Stewart's before anything else.
but ginger beer is easily my favorite soda.
That Jamaican ginger beer is great stuff.
I don't think I've ever had birch beer or sarsparilla.
Man... On a hot & humid summer Minnesota day, there ain't nothin' better (soda wise) than a glass of ice cold 1919 Root Beer. Since it's a draft though, I don't get it often enough.
"...real draft 1919 root beer made in New Ulm Minnesota the old fashioned way... It's made in an old brewery and is only available in kegs. ...generally known by root beer connoisseurs to be the finest and best tasting root beer around."
"1919 root beer is distinctive
because it's a draft root beer, it can't be canned or bottled without changing the recipe."
