Not Your Father’s Root Beer
Brewery: Small Town Brewing Co, Wauconda, IL
Beer Style: Hard Root Beer
I’ve had quite a few of these since they came out. Not quite a beer, but not your… father’s root beer either. NYFRB is a sweet root beer in a glass. But don’t forget about the alcohol. At 5.9% these can sneak up on you.
Pour one of these into a mug with some ice cream and you take this to another level. I haven’t tried pairing NYFRB with other foods yet, but I’m betting it would go well with spicy foods.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer took the US by storm last year, and I foresee them continuing to do so this year, but with more competition.
Silky, smooth and satisfying finish is unmatched in flavor. It appeals to craft beer aficionados as well as those who don’t typically drink beer but crave something unique.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer is a category-defining craft specialty ale brewed with unique spices. Brewer Tim Kovac’s creativity and painstaking commitment to flavor complexity results in an unmistakable offering that masterfully blends hints of sarsaparilla, wintergreen, anise, and vanilla. A smooth and balanced Ale, NYFRB has broad appeal – from discerning craft beer drinkers to non-beer drinkers.
