Abita

Abita reminds me of a completely different century. If I had to suggest a time frame that Abita’s design sourced from, it would certainly be the early 1800s, and maybe even the late 1700s. I think this has a lot to do with the Fleur De Lis emblem, as well as the ribbon like label. Abita comes straight from Louisiana, so this makes sense given the relation with France. Then again all of those initial impressions are really a matter of taste. Speaking of, for a few reasons that will become somewhat clear in this review, I am really hoping…

Always Ask For Avery’s

Avery’s™ looks like it has fallen straight out of the early 1900s. Hopefully the flavor will be as traditional as other brews that come from that time. I’m intrigued by its simplistic style and design, and in-your-face lettering. To be honest, it reminds me of the look of a repair man, or a milk man. Is Avery’s™ a working man’s root beer? Let’s find out! Gold Coin Root Beer Avery’s™ is a very dark looking root beer, filled to the absolute top of the neck. The white label, with blue and black block lettering is easy to read, and conveys…

This root beer comes highly recommended, and I found it fairly recently and figured that this would be a wonderful brew to review. To my knowledge, this is my first Australian root beer and I’m looking forward to trying it out. Australian Family Owned Brewed Over 3 Days Bundaberg’s bottle is incredibly unique, and definitely conveys a “craft brew” feeling with its unique pull-tab bottle cap and short stocky presentation. It looks like an old medicine bottle, and if my information is correct, that’s what these kinds of brews used to be in 19th and early 20th centuries. The colors…

Virgil’s Bavarian Nutmeg Special Edition

I’ve reviewed Virgil’s regular brew, and their zero sugar offering with wildly different ratings. Nevertheless, Virgil’s is known for their past award winning brew, and is widely thought of being one of the best overall root beers around. When I saw this bottle at Whole Foods, I couldn’t let it go. It wasn’t cheap either. If I’m recalling correctly, one bottle of this was equal to an entire pack of Virgil’s. I hope it’s worth it. I’m not entirely sure if the Bavarian nutmeg special edition is any different than the original micro-brew. That would be an interesting and disappointing…
