root beers

Zia Root Beer – old

the persistent and ever driven Sagi found this brand on a trip through New Mexico. they claim it is nano-brewed, which i don’t think i’ve ever heard of and which i definitely can’t define. i especially don’t know if that is smaller than batch brewed or if there are nano particles in here or something. i venture to guess they just mean they don’t make a lot at once. they donate a portion of their proceeds to a local native american tribe and sustainability projects, which is quite rad. and also a change of pace from all the companies giving money to tigers and whales and the like.
there are some very promising ingredients here, this could be a very delightful beverage if it all comes together well.
it does indeed come together well! it has a very complex and ever changing flavor. you are first hit with the vanilla and clove i believe which then fades to reveal the malt a little bit before the licorice and anise slides in, subtly to linger on your tongue for a while. it is quite an enjoyable and unusual beverage. they pulled this off. it does not quite get to the real upper echelon, although I am not sure just what would get them there, this is tasty and unique. something intangible i suppose is needed.
