Bundaberg

This root beer comes highly recommended, and I found it fairly recently and figured that this would be a wonderful brew to review. To my knowledge, this is my first Australian root beer and I’m looking forward to trying it out. Australian Family Owned Brewed Over 3 Days Bundaberg’s bottle is incredibly unique, and definitely conveys a “craft brew” feeling with its unique pull-tab bottle cap and short stocky presentation. It looks like an old medicine bottle, and if my information is correct, that’s what these kinds of brews used to be in 19th and early 20th centuries. The colors…

Virgil’s Zero

Virgil’s root beer is currently hovering around the number one spot on this blog. It’s one of the most iconic, modern root beers out there, and a personal favorite. The only on-par rival that it has for me right now is Polar, which offers a much more traditional flavor. Thus, when I saw Virgil’s Zero on the shelf, I couldn’t say no to opportunity of reviewing it. I do not typically seek out diet beverages, but there are those out there that don’t really have much of a choice. Hopefully this review appeals to them. However, please understand that diet…

Sioux City

Sioux City is known for its incredibly sweet, minty birch beer. It’s a solid reddish amber drink, and I’m a big fan. However, birch beer isn’t root beer, and I’m not reviewing that. Today, I’m giving Sioux City Root Beer a chance, and I’m really excited to sink my taste buds into this brew, especially after the last one. Old West Brew Sioux City is a totally stout root beer. It’s dark and wide, and looks like it has a bite to it. The bottle is embossed with the Sioux City name. The label is colored in muted blue and…

WBC Chicago Style

It makes sense that being in the Midwest, and this being a Chicago brew, I would see WBC around a lot. That’s been part of the reason I’ve been skipping it for the past few reviews. If it’s everywhere, like IBC, could it really be good? I don’t really know, but I intend to find out. Trust me; I’m not going to mix this one up with IBC before I even start. It’s important not to judge a book by its cover, or whether it’s readily available. A&W in Canada is readily available, and it’s pretty damn good. Anyway, let’s…
