    I like a nice frosty mug of root beer

  2. I can’t get it anymore, but Saranac was always my favorite root beer.

    “Slight echo of pop rocks” – that is good Jon, really good.

  6. You need to try Hank’s, Frostie and Henry Weinhard’s.  And of course no mention of A & W, it’s an okay grocery store root beer; not even top 25 root beer.
