Weber's Root Beer

My friend and colleague (ML) found this root beer for me during one of his trips to the US recently.   Weber's Root Beer is brought to you by the folks at Weber's Drive In in Pennsauken, NJ.

This root beer was only available for take-out in the growler sized bottle.  It took a while to get to me but it arrived save and sound.  ML and I cracked it open at work one day.

The flavor profile is huge!  There is tons of bite to this.  I thought it was loaded with flavors.  For those who like a root beer that is more on the spicy/bite-y side, I think you'll like this one.  It wasn't overly sweet.  It really is a great root beer.   It also packs a nice tall head when you pour it as well.

Crim City Soda Renegade Root Beer

I found this root beer at Save-On-Foods in Lethbridge Alberta.  This root beer is brought to you by Double D Beverage Company in White Rock, B.C.  Yes! Another Canadian root beer! :D

This root beer sported a decent head head when I poured it.  It fizzled away quickly though.   The flavor profile is built using natural flavors and also includes yucca root extract.  It is sweetened with cane sugar.  I found this root beer to be well balanced between the sweetness and bite.  I enjoyed this root beer thoroughly.

Dad-Gum-It! Butterscotch Root Beer

I found this root beer at the Candy Shop in Cardston, AB.   This root beer is another one of those brought to you by Rocket Fizz whose company headquarters are located in Camarillo, CA. 

I didn't get much of a head when I poured this one.  The head fizzled away quick.  It is sweetened with cane sugar and the flavor profile is built using natural flavorings.  I found this root beer to be quite average.

The Three Stooges Wise Guy Root Beer

My awesome sister and her family found this root beer for me from the Candy Shop in Cardston, AB.   This root beer is brought to you by Rocket Fizz whose company headquarters are located in Camarillo, CA.  

This root beer's flavor profile is built using natural flavors.  It is sweetened with pure cane sugar.  It had a small head when I poured it and it dissipated quickly.  Overall, I found the taste to be quite average and nothing really stood out about it for me to add it to my all time favorites.

Twig's Root Beer

I found Twig's Root Beer on a recent trip to Soda Pop Central in Whitby, ON.  This root beer is brought to you by Twig's Beverage in Shawano, WI.

Artificial and natural flavors go into this root beer according to the label. It is sweetened with 100% REAL Sugar - also written on the label.  I found the flavor profile to be fairly consistent with other above average root beers.  I enjoyed it; however, it didn't make it into my all time favorites.

Deadworld Slow Decay Vanilla Root Beer

I found Deadworld Slow Decay Vanilla Root Beer on a recent trip to Soda Pop Central in Whitby, ON.  This root beer is brought to you by Caprice Brands in Livonia, MI.

First off, I love the label.  It's based on the Deadworld comic books.  I saved this root beer to drink along with the season finale of The Walking Dead Season 7.  It sported a decent sized head when you pour it.  The flavor profile is built using natural flavorings which includes the obvious vanilla.  It is sweetened with pure cane sugar.  It was quite sweet and the vanilla was at the forefront.  The bite was that strong.

Druthers Black Cow Vanilla Creme Root Beer

I found Druthers Black Cow Vanilla Creme Root Beer on a recent trip to Soda Pop Central in Whitby, ON.  This root beer is another one of those brews brought to you by the folks over at Druther's Beverage Company in Oglesby, IL.

This root beer sports a tall head when you pour it.  It isn't that thick though and disappears on you quickly.  The flavor profile is built using natural and artificial flavors.  It is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.  You really get the kick of vanilla from this one - they weren't kidding when they named it.  The bite was a bit lackluster but overall it wasn't a bad brew.
