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.
