In honor of all the Dads out there, this week on our blog we’re highlighting Small Town Brewery’s, Not Your Father’s Root Beer. It’s silky, smooth unmatched flavor is the perfect beverage to celebrate dad this weekend.
Looking for a beer that smells and tastes exactly like your favorite fountain pop Root Beer? Then this is the beer for you. The fermentation process brought out by Small Town includes several natural ingredients including: honey, vanilla, cinnamon, wintergreen and sarsaparilla bark. Although Not Your Father’s is a highlight acclaimed beer, some critics don’t even consider it a beer because it lacks on critical ingredient essential to beer, hops. But this hasn’t stopped it from being wildly popular among enthusiasts.
The 12-ounce, 5.9% ABV bottles pour dark cola brown with a slight caramel color. In comparison to actual root beer, it’s a little stickier and not nearly as fizzy. But as we mentioned before, all the aromas are reminiscent of soda with sweet honeyed vanilla and sassafras spice. There is a subtle boozy note to it, sort of like a spiked root beer. Flavors of black licorice, cream soda and small bitter rootlike qualities.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer is for everyone. It appeals to beer aficionados, as well those who don’t typically enjoy beer. Not only is it great to share with your dad this weekend, but also very enjoyable at a summer BBQ, out camping and any other warm-weather activities.
