Henry Weinhard’s Root Beer

Henry Weinhard’s was recently recommended by a fan of the blog. I’m pretty excited when someone else recommends me a root beer, especially if they’re a fan of my work. If I can get my hands on it, especially during this pandemic, I’ll try and review it. Honestly I’ve seen Henry Weinhard’s around for years, but because they only come in a six pack, and since no one has ever mentioned it to me before, I’ve been apprehensive to give it a try. Since it’s hard to find really good root beer in my experience, I am more prone to…

I will not be having a lovely deli sandwich while I review this root beer, but I will…



Today we’re delving into the world of canned root beer. Starting with Hansen’s. Generally speaking, I prefer root beer in a bottle. I think my aversion has something to do with how canned root beer is presented and sold. Canned drinks are generally sold together with soda pop, which means root beer is represented as nothing more than another flavor, next to cola or lemon lime. But root beer is its own genre of drink. It has a depth of history, and it’s (hopefully) brewed as a compilation of flavors, spices, and herbs, rather than chemically derives flavors. Plus, canned…
