Popsoda.com has been my standby for exotic sodas from around the US. Their supply of Sprecher's was out of stock. I once ordered a six pack of Moxie from them, in glass bottles. Arrived without a problem.

Moxie, however, is nasty. Its kind of a cross between clove and burnt vacuum cleaner belt.

I can get Moxie off the store shelf here, and was curious about it. I think I will pass now.

I can happily say your assessment of both Root Beer's were spot on. The spiciness of the Gale's was interesting, not what I would expect from Root Beer, but a very pleasant experience. Most surely worth a repeat purchase.


The Fitz's reminded me of a local Root Beer we used to get in Pittsburgh when we went to visit relatives. . It's what I expect Root Beer to taste like, however there is that bit of "fruitiness" you mentioned, over all it was very pleasing to my taste buds. .

I'll be trying the "butterscotch" this weekend. . I might wait a few days though, my taste buds have been affected by a slight cold. . I don't want to miss anything. .

Oh, absolutely. The butterscotch root beer is quite sweet, but the flavor will make you forgive the sweetness of the brew.

Finally found Sprecher's, bought a 4 pack and stuck them in the fridge. Today, after stuffing some walls with insulation and hanging a couple half-sheets of sheetrock I treated myself to a bottle... and another. Wow. I had no idea.

I finally remembered Sprecher's existed and looked on their website and apparently Menard's (apparently the inbred cousin of Lowe's and Home Depot) carries it about 5 miles from my home.

Got there and the four-packs were on sale for $2.57 so I got two Root Beers, and one each of ALL the other sodas they make, minus the low-cal Root Beer of course.

Gonna have it with dinner tonight.

I'll have to check the Menard's here. .If they carry it, I'll be saved the additional mileage to Lehmans. . . In fact I'll check it out today while I'm in the area...

And on a side note to Dromond. . The butterscotch, was indeed everything you said!!!

I drink this stuff like water. It's actually not bad in a float either.



I personally love sarsaparilla as well.

And of course, pretty much all Stewart's beverages are delicious.

I've had Pennsylvania Dutch root beer, and it's not bad for a mess of chemicals and high fructose corn syrup. (translation: I wouldn't drink it voluntarily, but if necessary I could drink it without pulling a face).

On the other hand, your love of Stewart's and sarsaparilla proves you do have a taste for good beverage after all.

We bought a Sodastream as an early family xmas present. Their root beer isn't bad at all. The diet tastes as sweet as non-diet stuff. Plus basically we have root beer on demand I had a sample of the root beer and it sold me to not question hubs desire for the thing.

If I had one, I'd pretty much use it exclusively to make my own root beer. I'd learn how to brew up my own syrup.

I attempted to make root beer from extract.

The result was... not good.

I'm going to try again, but I don't know. I should probably leave it to the professionals.
