I found this root beer while on a bicycle tour of pizza places and dive bars in Boston. They had it in a small cooler behind the bar and I knew as soon as I saw it that I needed to have it. I’m not a huge fan of the design of the label on this one. It looks too much like a generic, store-brand root beer you would find at a grocery store. The root beer itself was quite good. The flavor wasn’t too strong in any direction, but it didn’t taste watered down at all. It paired well with the pizza and beer so if you’re looking for a good root beer to enjoy with your meal, this one will do the job.
