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.

Virgil’s Micro Brewed Root Beer

Please Note: This review was performed in 2016, when a possible older recipe of Virgil’s Micro Brewed Root Beer was being sold by Reed’s Inc. If you come across a label that differs from the one in this review, you may not be experiencing the same root beer that this review describes.  I have to admit that I’m excited for Virgil’s. It’s been a little while, but if I’m remembering correctly, this is one of those brands that has set the standard for the industry. I have to admit, after my last three experiences, I feel I’m due for something…
