Root beer has been a popular drink here in America for about 150 years. Whether consumed alone from a bottle or can, or with vanilla ice cream as a root beer “float,” kids and adults alike love the unique flavor of root beer.
You are probably aware that there are many, many different root beer makers and everyone seems to have a different opinion about which is best. What you may not know is that one of our local brewery’s makes a root beer that tops the list of favorites (for root beer history and reviews, click here.)
River City Brewing Company, whose eatery is located inside Westfield’s Downtown Plaza, in addition to brewing several ales, also brews a tasty specialty root beer as well. Now, I am by no means a root beer connoisseur, but I do enjoy a good root beer…and River City Root Beer is one of them.
You can purchase the root beer on tap at River City Brewing Company or If you are dying for a good root beer float, head on over to any local Big Spoon Yogurt shop. For just $2.00, you can make yourself a yummy River City root beer float that will satisfy your craving.
Now, the folks at River City Brewing Company have graciously donated some bottles of their specialty root beer to give away to one of our lucky readers.
