I fully am in favor of anyone who makes a new root beer. especially one where all proceeds go to charity. i hope those people making that root beer put some effort into it though of course. the label here makes me think they did not do so very well. not that it is awful, it is just very generic and mailed in seeming. it is brown and orange, wood grain looking. I am rather confused by the blurb on the side of the label as well, something about Potosi being where root beer is crafted and that craft being in a museum. i think i know what they are saying but i could be all wrong, mainly as i don’t think there is a root beer brewing section in this museum let alone the whole thing being dedicated to the craft of root beer brewing.

along those same lines, often when a brewery makes a root beer, it isn’t anything special. they just use generic stuff, often root beer extract to have something for kids and designated drivers or whatever. i am a bit undecided here if they used extract or not. i will assume not as they claim it is crafted a whole lot, but it definitely tastes a lot like a good extract. that isn’t so bad though. it is creamy, smooth and highly sweet. in fact i do not recall a soda with this high sugar count or calorie content. i am sure there are some, but wow, that’s a lot! yes, it is kind of generic, but high end, craft root beer generic, not grocery store generic. i’d have it again if that was what i craved and i could easily get it.
Ingredients:carbonated water, pure cane sugar, honey, caramel color, natural and artificial flavors, phosphoric and citric acid, sodium benzoate (to preserve freshness)
