I hardly ever drink soda anymore, except for Root Beer. I love it, there are so many different kinds, some easier to find than others depending on what part of the world you live in. Of course in this day and age with the internet you can order more varieties of Root Beer online.

My favorites are I.B.C. bottled, Barq's, A&W, Dad's, Mug, & Bulldog.

Anyone else a fan of Root Beer? What are your favorites?

Yes, Henry Weinhard's Root Beer would be my favorite.

Man it tastes good. It costs about the same a real beer. That's one problem. It foams up pretty bad too. I guess it would make a good float.

Yup, I like root beer. I even like it better without the roots in it.

I tried this homemade Root Beer one time down in Georgia, it was absolutely fantastic. I also tried Wild Bill's at a festival once and found myself getting 12th's on it...

Aside from specialty:

IBC's, Jones Soda, Dad's Old Fashioned, A&W, and Mug are my absolute favorites.

I'm not a soda drinker at all but I do LOVE root beer! We homebrew beer and hard cider at home, and at the store where we purchase supplies, you can get the stuff to brew your own root beer, we are going to do it eventually.
I typically love root beer with chicken for some odd reason LOL

I remember Barrelhead rootbeer and I loved that! I don't think it's made anymore, though.

The corner store down the street sells Frostie root beer in single (glass bottles) - good stuff.

That's my favorite brand too. I had it for the first time in Oregon about 4 years ago.
