    The best damn root beer out there?

    Recommend a new root beer that may not be well known, but is very good. Or maybe your favorite is well know, what is it?

    I've always been told to try this stuff, but I have yet to ever find any. I may just purchase some online. Anyone had?

    Re: The best damn root beer out there?

    as for cheap canned rootbeer, I prefer Mug. A&W is great. I love the root beer at Culver's. Least favorite other than generic brands is Barq's.

    Here's my personal favorite:

    Dad's Root Beer is wonderful.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    So many good ones out there, but Goose Island is the only one I purchase by the case.

    Re: The best damn root beer out there?

    as far as gas stations pop, I stick with Mug. Barqs is ok, but it's almost a different flavor than what you expect out of a root beer

    Re: The best damn root beer out there?

    My favorite is Sprecher out of Milwaukee. It's widely available and comes in BIG BOTTLES. Thumbs up.



    I also really enjoyed Dorothy's which is out of Ely, MN and has a GREAT backstory to accompany a superb rootbeer.



    You can buy it off the shelves if you are emerging from the BWCA, or you can buy it online.

    Re: The best damn root beer out there?

    Olde Main brews their own. By far my favorite. I think it's called Red Monkey Root beer. Not sure if you can get it anywhere but there.
