Beer God's Notes

Not Your Father’s Root Beer (10.7% limited edition) – this is tasty. Dangerously so. Not overly sweet like the lower ABV version. There is still a lot of “sugary” mouthfeel to these beers, but the extra alcohol in this version really helps to bring out the other flavors in the root beer. I know that this is going to be a limited beer, but I will definitely be on the lookout for more.

When I drink this root beer, I’m kind of transcended back to my childhood when my grandma would buy me IBC rootbeer to have as a “special treat” — and if I was extra good (I was always extra good) we could make root beer floats, too!  I made a root beer float with the 5.9% version and absolutely loved it.  I can’t imagine how good this 10.9% version would be.



The 10.7% delivers an intense, rich flavor by combining hints of sarsaparilla, wintergreen, anise, and Madagascar vanilla with a heavy bodied, creamy texture. This brew brings the same taste everyone loves, but with more of a punch!
