Category: Root Beer


Today we’re delving into the world of canned root beer. Starting with Hansen’s. Generally speaking, I prefer root beer in a bottle. I think my aversion has something to do with how canned root beer is presented and sold. Canned drinks are generally sold together with soda pop, which means root beer is represented as nothing more than another flavor, next to cola or lemon lime. But root beer is its own genre of drink. It has a depth of history, and it’s (hopefully) brewed as a compilation of flavors, spices, and herbs, rather than chemically derives flavors. Plus, canned…


Dang! That’s Good Butterscotch

I believe this is the 25th root beer reviewed on this blog, and on this special occasion, I grabbed a bottle of Dang! That’s Good Butterscotch root beer. I saw it, and honestly I couldn’t say no.

Sioux City

Sioux City is known for its incredibly sweet, minty birch beer. It’s a solid reddish amber drink, and I’m a big fan. However, birch beer isn’t root beer, and I’m not reviewing that. Today, I’m giving Sioux City Root Beer a chance, and I’m really excited to sink my taste buds into this brew, especially after the last one. Old West Brew Sioux City is a totally stout root beer. It’s dark and wide, and looks like it has a bite to it. The bottle is embossed with the Sioux City name. The label is colored in muted blue and…
