I enjoy the taste of beer, but I love the taste of root beer. It’s kind of ridiculous that they’re both called “beer,” because they’re so different.
Apparently there’s a company who felt the same way, because they invented an alcoholic root beer called “Not Your Father’s Root Beer.” Obviously it’s amazing.
I had my first bottle of this wonderful elixir a few nights ago, and I was delighted to learn that it wasn’t a malt beverage like, say, Mike’s Hard Lemonade. I usually enjoy the first sip or two of those drinks, but they the saccharine syrup starts to stick to my throat, and I want nothing else to do with it.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer is truly a beer…it’s just tastes like root beer. It certainly won’t replace root beer for me–while I don’t drink soda all that often, I drink alcohol far less often–but I’d like to keep a 6-pack in my fridge from now on so I can have a bottle from time to time.
Have you tried it anything like this?
