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…


Old Town Root Beer Sarsparilla (Discontinued)

Old Town Root Beer, Sarsparilla. I know the spelling is off, but check out the label. Apparently there are a few brands of Old Town Root Beer, but it looks like, for the foreseeable future, this might be my only review of this brands line. By the time I got around to pulling this root beer out of cold storage, the origin location appears to have closed down. I’ll touch on that a bit later, but it looks like, for now, this review will be a bit melancholic. Old Town Rootbeer Co., an MSN Treat! The bottle is an attractive…

Rooty-toot-toot, and thanks for scooting over! Stewart’s calls itself a Fountain Classic. Talk about conveying the imagery of a cold and frothy mug of crisp root beer. Well, I’m not reviewing Mug right now, so I’ll have to make do with this bottle of Stewart’s. Let’s not be confused though, this is the Original Stewart’s we’re talking about. Rooty-tooty-point-and-what? Stewart’s has decided to go with the classic dark bottle design. Imbued with a raised Stewart’s logo, their bottle is definitely fitting. The real seller though, is the Stewart’s logo plastered to the front. The barrel-like mug really pulls you in,…
