The Root Beer Person Posts


If you haven’t heard of Frostie, I completely understand. Around here, it’s known for being a traditional root beer with a long history. Right on the cap, instead of some type of marketing tagline, you’ll find Since 1939. That should say enough, apparently. In any case, I haven’t had Frostie in a very long time—to the point that I can’t even remember how it tastes. I’m hoping it really surprises me, and brings me back down memory lane.

I’m going into Genuine Hank’s Gourmet Philadelphia Recipe Root Beer with an open mind. After the turn of events that was Old Red Eye, I think my initial apprehension over the gruff Hank’s might be fluff. I’m expecting this one to be good. The folks over at /r/rootbeer seem to think so, so my tHanks to them. Anyway, since I was able to get a hold of one of these brews, I figured it should be next. Let’s see what happens. Genuine. Gourmet. Gold. Hank’s! Hank’s is packaged in an eye-catching, very attractive bottle. Although the label on mine was…
