Gourmet Root Beer

One sip of a childhood favorite will take your mind wandering down memory lane. So why not enjoy this treat more often. The types of root beer that exist are extensive and range from favorites from decades ago to gourmet brands and ones created by brew masters who normally create beer. Some root beer can contain alcohol, but the ones we sampled and have displayed do not. Featured are three versions of Root Beer; Genuine Hank’s® Gourmet Philadelphia Recipe Root Beer, St. Arnold® Hand Crafted Root Beer and IBC® Root Beer Since 1919. Each has a unique flavor and varies in creaminess and how bold the root beer flavor is. If you have a brewery near you see if they make their own brand of root beer, I highly recommend trying one of their hand crafted masterpieces. Don’t overlook the brands that have been around for decades either; they are still great. For any of those watching their waistline, IBC® has a diet root beer that I think is great and treat myself to quite frequently.

Ingredients

1 bottle of Genuine Hank’s® Gourmet Philadelphia Recipe Root Beer
1 bottle of Saint Arnold® Hand Crafted Root Beer – Houston, TX
1 bottle of IBC® Root Beer Since 1919
Bottle opener (may be needed for some)
Mugs

Technique

Serve chilled. Remove cap with a bottle opener, or twist off, pour into mugs and enjoy! Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have a root beer float. On occasion, we have even added a little bit of chocolate to the float. Another option is to blend it with ice cream. It will be a little thinner than a thick milk shake and has a creamy wonderful flavor. Drink as is or mix it up. Anyway you sip it root beer is a great treat!
