The Root Beer Person Posts

Blue Sky

Blue Sky has been recommended to me as the pinnacle of easily available, affordable root beer; gourmet without the scarcity, if you will. Well, I’ve been putting it off in favor of more obscure brews, but now I’m here to give it a try. As I’ve said in the past, I have a predisposition against canned root beers. Plus, based on past reviews that brand themselves as creamy, I feel like I’m in the right to be wary. Nevertheless, this is the most highly recommended brew, so I have to give it a fair shake.

Dr. Brown’s

If you’ve ever sat in a deli, especially in Michigan, you should be well acquainted with Dr. Brown’s; especially their black cherry pop.

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. It’s just too strange. I don’t expect that this brew will be the best I’ve ever had. I do expect that this will be a weird, but very interesting treat. I took a moment to reflect on my first post, and it turns out I am pretty picky, and I’m still an amateur enthusiast. So I guess I found out a little bit…
