Frostop Red Birch Beer

Frostop are sort of a weird brand to me. they could latch onto that “old time,” “classic,” nostalgia thing. i mean they have long running restaurants with old school barrel dispensers and a rich history. they seem more ‘valid’ and ‘genuine’ in my mind than many of the resurrected old brands. I have only been to one of their retail places and it was kind of run down and a hole in the wall (or the strip mall in this case). I mean, yes, they do have very nice glass bottles as well so they are trying in that regard. yet that they have these 99 cent plastic quart bottles as the only way to get their birch beer is a little disappointing. or i guess it could be awesome and i should not fall into the trap of disregarding something because of its packaging, the ‘judging a book by its cover’ stuff.
in any case the flavor here is disappointing. it really doesn’t have much of that whole flavor thing in fact. i would call this more ‘slightly birch beer flavored sugar water.’ it has some carbonation, but not really enough but even with that, it needs more to it. granted, that whole 99 cents for a quart of soda thing may have something to it, although the plastic bottle less so. that is not really how i work. I applaud their efforts to make a red bitch beer but this doesn’t cut it.

    Some people think root beer is supposed to have a “kick” or “bite” to it. True old fashioned root beer is supposed to be very SMOOOOOOTH.
    AND NOW, as for Frostop Birchbeer:
    it is just right; not like the TOO FEW I’ve been able to taste, lately.
    I used to drink a lot of birchbeer as a child.
    Our dad would take the family out for pizza every Friday, after he got paid. He would order a LARGE pizza for himself and mom, then he would two pizzas for six hungry children. (In those days a pizza only came in one size. Usually 20 inches across. Try to find a pizza that big now. HA!) Then came the pitchers of birchbeer: each pitcher was at least 2quarts,. We usually emptied 4 pitchers just between we six children.
    Today it is very difficult to find any kind of birchbeer. IF I could; then maybe I would have rated Frostop Birchbeer with other than 99. I still think that a really good Birchbeer is the best soda to have with a pizza.
    But there just aren’t any more birchbeer sodas round any more. ( Or at least not that I have found.) But so far: on my opinion, Frostop Birchbeer is the best………
    Thanx for letting me say so.
