One day as I was pondering my existence, the thought came to me, “life is far too short and precious to spend it not knowing which root beer is the best.” I do not drink a lot of soda, but I have a great respect for root beer. In that moment, thanks in large part to my genetic obsessive-compulsive tendencies, I resolved to seek out and test every bottled root beer, birch beer. and sarsaparilla (diet sodas excepeted) I could get my hands on. I am well aware that there is an abundance of more complete and more informative root beer review sites on the inter-web. However, I decided to create this blog to record my reviews and keep my thoughts in order as I search for the best root flavors. There are, after all, LOTS AND LOTS of root beer brands.
