Natural Brew

A complex flavor of bourbon vanilla extract, anise, sarsaparilla, licorice root, birch oil, wintergreen oil, and other natural flavors.

Old Red Eye

I’ve got a bad feeling that Old Red Eye Root Beer is going to kick my teeth in. I’m not a huge fan of the bitter stuff, and I’ve got this inkling that’s what I’m in for. I don’t know it for sure, but I get the sense that this root beer isn’t going to be up my alley. Well, you know what they say, “take life by the horns,” so I guess I’d better get started with this gnarly looking brew.
