Grand Teton Brewing Company Root Beer

My friend and colleague, FT, bought me this root beer when he was down in Idaho Falls, ID this past fall.  

This brew is created by the fine folks over at Grand Teton Brewing Company in Victor, ID.

This root beer is created with pure Grand Teton spring water  and has a serious bite coming from the sassafras, vanilla and winter green. It is sweetened with 100% cane sugar but it is not overly sweet. It also has a small head to it as well that doesn't last too long.  It's a good brew and I'm very appreciative of my colleague to get this one to me.  Thanks FT!

Ginseng UP Root Beer

I found Ginseng UP root beer at Rainbow foods here in Ottawa after a friend of mine mentioned that he had spotted a bunch of root beer there.   It is made by Ginseng Up Corp. in Worcester, MA.

Ginseng UP packs a very gingery taste.  This brew reminds me very much of a medicinal drink though.  I didn't enjoy it as much as the root beer king of the USA did. :)
