There is something about root beer that I love. It may be the slightly spicy, licorice/sassafrass flavor. Or it could be the smooth mellow taste.
It is though things, but I think a big part of it is the hunt. There are hundreds of different varieties of root beer bottled all over the country. When you find a new one it is like opening a present. Will you like it or won’t you? Will it taste like you are hoping? How are you hoping it will taste? And once you find one you really like will you be able to get it back home?
The picture below is a root beer local to Milwaukee that tastes just like the Brach’s root beer candies.
