I think I just discovered why Barq's is so popular. They're apparently the first RB to contain caffeine.
Is that true?
I thought that was a sacrilege in the root beer world.

I rarely drink root beer, but if/when I do, I prefer Dr. Brown's.

Any root beer out of a tap. Usually tastes much more awesomer than canned or bottled root beer. There is a bar that I frequent that has root beer out of a tap. I have to fight with myself to order normal beer half of the the time, because the root beer is so good.

Also, A&W FROM AN A&W RESTAURANT. A&W out of a can or bottle does not compare. Don't ask me why.

For the most part, when I drink rootbeer, I don't care what brand it is, so I chose "Other".

That said, sometimes I crave the SMELL of A & Ws... it's a bit stronger smelling than the others.

My grandfather used to make great rootbeer in the basement-along with other beer as well. After he passed away, my dad did it too. I should probably revive that tradition.

I like Boylan red birch beer and also Hank's-Philly.

I voted never. I've never been able to get past the smell of root beer, to actually allow it in my mouth!

I picked A&W because I just had some yesterday. Hires is good stuff too. The best was the couple of times I made it from scratch. Sixty beer bottles for under $10.
