Not Your Father's Root Beer

Not Your Father's Root Beer Small Town Brewery Beer Connoisseur Magazine

Not Your Father's Root Beer by Wisconsin-based Small Town Brewery has folks buzzing, and justifiably so. It's tasty, nuanced, and unlike so many spiced beers, well executed. 

In fact, it's hard to tell there's alcohol in there at first. The nose and flavor is pure root beer, with the alcohol and spices mingling pleasantly in the finish. It's as welcoming as a loving headlock from your father's hairy forearm. 

We had the 5.9% version, but there are also 10.7% and 19.5% smaller batch offerings. 

This is a unique brew, and while an entire six-pack may have you saying "Uncle", it's definitely worth experiencing.
