Mission Brewery Hard Root Beer

I drink a lot of beer but I’ll mix it up every once in a while and try something different. I was feeling adventurous at the store and got a six-pack of Mission Brewery Hard Root Beer. It’s what it sounds like. It’s root beer with booze in it. It has a respectable 7.5% alcohol content so it’s harder than Budweiser. I cracked open a bottle and poured it into a frosty mug. It looks like root beer. It’s a dark brown color with moderate carbonation and a thin head that dissipates quickly. It smells like root beer. There’s spice, licorice, and vanilla aromas. It tastes like root beer on the first sip, but with a definite boozy aftertaste once you swallow it. It has an herbal medicine flavor that takes some getting used to. It’s neither good nor bad. I’m not impressed and I’m not disappointed either. It’s just a different way of getting drunk. It’s worth trying if you like root beer and booze, but a six-pack is a big commitment if you’re not sure about it. I wish that I bought a single bottle to sample first. I’ll finish my six-pack eventually but I’m not in any rush to do so.

Dang! That’s Good Butterscotch Root Beer

Dang! That’s Good is a soda company and Butterscotch Root Beer is one of their flavored sodas. You can’t help but say “Dang! That’s good!” when you take a sip. It’s a rich, creamy, old-fashioned root beer with butterscotch flavor added to it. I’m not a big fan of butterscotch. I think it’s too sweet. But it perfectly compliments the root beer, and the end result is delicious. This is a soda pop. It pops in your mouth, and I can’t wait to finish it so I can pop open another one. It’s caffeine free like most root beers, but they use real sugar so you still get a temporary energy boost. It might be hard to find it, so you should buy a few bottles if you ever come across it. You will thank me for your stockpile after your first sip.

A&W Sparkling Vanilla Cream Soda

A&W might be better known for their root beer and cheese curds, but they also make a good cream soda. Cream soda is an underrated and often forgotten soda. It’s good though and it’s good for you (I can’t prove that, it just sounds good). If you see it at the store, get it and let your taste buds have fun. It has caffeine in it, and that’s always a bonus.
