Mug Brand Root Beer

quite a good brew for a major label. behind a&w, probably my favorite. and perhaps IBC, it just depends on my mood really. a very solid root beer flavor, nothing really special or tricky about it and it is refreshing because of this, to me at least.

    I just don’t like this one much and I really can’t figure out why. Is it because I am only drinking the diet version of this brand, even though with most drinks it doesn’t bother me. Perhaps I should try a can of regular. Yep, that’s what I will do and then send in a update.
    By the way the page looks fine to me.
    Anthony, when you get to read this, your site looks fine on IE and Google Chrome browsers, it just doesn’t on AOL’s browser. I’m sure you know about this problem. In case you don’t your missing about 1/2″ on the left side of the pages. You can of course delete this last part of my reply.

    Well I tried their regular and I still can hardly drink it.

    This is my favorite major brand!!!! It has the best taste. It destroys A&W, it has more bite than Barqs and it KOs I.B.C.

    Surprised to see such a high rating for Mug Root Beer. To me it tastes like melted root beer popsicles with carbonation.

  7. GlassKeyPhoto says:

    I used to get cases of this in 10 oz squat bottles as a kid. For that reason alone it will always have a soft spot in my heart (and probably cause a few soft spots in my teeth…)

  8. This one is ok, It is just a generic brand sold in almost every restaurant here in MN.

    Mug is just too plain and boring.

    Hi Anthony,
    I just got Mug root beer in a 12oz glass bottle, made with cane sugar.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  11. […] Pepsi Cola, Pepsi Jazz Strawberries & Cream and Caffeine Free Mountain Dew! they also make Mug Root Beer. but they saw these small, independent, local bottlers making a shred of money making small batches […]

    It’s been 22 years. I think you need to try this again Anthony because your rating is far too high and I can’t believe your palate hasn’t developed beyond this garbage. This mass-marketed swill is a flat, boring, and highly artificial tasting substitute for root beer.
