this is one of the raddest places i have been. i went to a couple of beverage stores in Glen’s Falls on the way to the brewry, thinking maybe they would carry this soda or maybe some others, but no one had any and they seemed confused when i said i was looking for root beers other than the A&W and Boylan’s that they carried. so i went to the brewery which had about 10 taps on the wall of their beers where you could fill your growler and then shelves of these indentical flip top glass bottles, each with a little label indicating the flavor. strangely they are labeled 375 ml / 12 oz but 12 oz is 355 ml as far as i know. oh well. they also sold ice cream, loads of local products like honey and hot sauce and syrups and also a lot of clothes advertising the place. now i am not sure why i did not get ice cream, i love ice cream. oh well. so i gathered up the 4-5 bottles of the flavors i wanted and paid for them. the cashier let me know that these too are refillable but i explained that i live too far away to get them refilled, unfortunately. beyond the rad bottles this soda is pretty good but not really unique, it is just root beer. tasty enough for what it is. enjoying with some pizza. would be good with some ice cream.

I was lucky enough to find this on also at the same place. I liked this better than the sarsaparilla, but not by much, It seems almost the same, just not as sweet and maybe a little darker. I give this one a 60
