Purchase Location: Galco’s Soda Pop Stop

As far as I can tell, Route 66 is the world’s number one root beer inspiring thoroughfare.   At least three sodas, Root 66 Root Beer, Mr. D’z Root 66 Root Beer, and Route 66 Route Beer, carry its name.  Route 66 Root Beer is made in Lebanon, Missouri, a stop on the historic byway stretching from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California.  Since 1996 it has been available throughout the eight Route 66 States as one of the many Route 66 souvenir items available for sale, and in other locations.  Route 66 Root Beer has the distinction of winning the 2010 Clear Choice Award granted by the Glass Packaging Institute, an award recognizing quality glass packaging design and materials.  Who knew such an award existed, or that the Glass Packaging Institute existed?

Route 66 Root Beer does not have any stand out qualities to it, but it does have a good taste.  What makes this root beer is its smooth caramel flavor.  It has a slight vanilla quality,  adding to the unassuming yet polished and steady caramel base.

Overall Score: 8 of 10.
