Wild Bill’s

Oddly enough I didn’t notice this until I had already purchased Wild Bill’s, but it’s apparently made in Northern Michigan. As a Michigander, that’s pretty darn cool. The name alone hearkens back to those old Westerns, which, strangely enough, definitely make you feel at home when considering an ice cold root beer. I’m excited to see what a Michigan brew can provide, but I honestly can’t remember where I picked this one up. Was it Meijer? No, I don’t think so. Possibly Bed Bath & Beyond, if you can believe that one. Actually, if I’m not mistaken, I believe it…

Boylan

Right off the bat I’d categorize Boylan as a pretty intimidating root beer. Generally speaking, the root beers that I’ve come across have been inviting. Take Frostie, for instance. Everything about it is designed to get you to buy into the root beer fantasy. The name symbolizes a nice cold root beer float, the label has bright inviting colors to catch your eye.

Well, I’m not reviewing Mug right now, so I’ll have to make do with this bottle of Stewart’s. Let’s not be confused though, this is the Original Stewart’s we’re talking about. Rooty-tooty-point-and-what? Stewart’s has decided to go with the classic dark bottle design. Imbued with a raised Stewart’s logo, their bottle is definitely fitting. The real seller though, is the Stewart’s logo plastered to the front. The barrel-like mug really pulls you in,…

Faygo

The long awaited Faygo bottled root beer. This is a real treat for me. I know that Faygo has a long running history, especially as an alternative (and vastly more affordable) to traditional brands. It’s been a pretty prominent part of my childhood. However, I’ve never had a chance to really get my hands on a bottled version of any of their pop, let alone root beer. Given that they have an endless supply of flavors, and notoriety (Faygo is a huge deal around these parts,) I’m hoping that this is a really enjoyable experience. Made in Detroit, Michigan It’s…
