Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

never really been a fan of Birch Beer, maybe because all I've ever had was the store brand though

Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

when i was a junior in highschool i was at some summer program at rose-hulman college and for one of our big parties we had a root beer kegger.

all of the college kids were talking about how these root beer kegs they were getting were the best rootbeer in the world. i am not big on rootbeer, but it was pretty delicious. the school was in indiana, but i think they went to illinois somewhere to get the kegs.

entertaining to see a v obese engineering kid doing rootbeer kegstands

Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

Sprecher sells a root beer mix - whether that's the same as what they bottle, I dunno - for those who want to make their own. I haven't made my own soda, mostly because it has a way of tainting homebrew beer stuff, but a dedicated homebrew root beer/soda tap is definitely in my future.

Berghoff ainec. Pure cane sugar is the key. You can't buy it in the grocery store but I am fortunate to have a store close by called the Soda Pop shop. Any soda you could imagine is sold there. Everything you can remember from your childhood is available.

IBC > A&W > Barq's > MUG

IMO. They're all good though, you can't go wrong.

Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

santa cruz makes a decent one as well. nothing like sprecher's imo, but it's decent. kind of different.

best rootbeer float ever is sprecher's/haagen dazs vanilla. any float fan should have that combo at least once.

Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

I chose Hires, but I can't find it here anymore, so I usually get Barq's. Never had IBC, probably just an American thing.

I'm in the minority that really doesn't like A&W.

Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

both barq's and mug are pretty bad i can't believe anyone would say mug was their favorite. i think that's the worst and is barely root beer.
a&w is good. i think baumeister root beer is my favorite. i'm sure i've had IBC root beer but i don't know offhand what it's like, but i usually like the bottled ones. don't really know the other brands mentioned in the poll either.

mmmmm rootbeer.

Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

I love root beer.

Recently, I discussed with a few coworkers the different names for soda + ice cream floats.

I'm curious how many people here know what a "black cow" is?

Re: OOT- Lets talk Root Beer

I haven't had IBC. From what I've had (which is a disgusting amount as a kid) MUG and its never been close.
