Summit Vintage Root Beer

I came across Summit Vintage at an ALDI, which has become fairly popular in the United States over the past decade. Make no mistake, this is a store brand. But the reason why I’m reviewing Summit Vintage is because it comes in a bottle. Most store brands do not, or at least, I haven’t seen very many. I’m hoping it’s not like Kroger’s Big K. An ALDI Brand The bottle is fairly plain, if not a little boring. The font, styling, and design, is very 60s. The white and brown coloring seems to suggest a creamy experience. Maybe that’s true?…

Reading Draft

Reading Draft is another root beer that oozes that olde fashioned drip. As another small time pop shop acquisition, I’m hoping that this one will provide a unique and flavorful experience.

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…
