Apart from the information found on its bottle, little is known by me about Empire Bottling Works Root Beer. The company operates out of Bristol, Rhode Island, and was organized in 1930. However, Empire Bottling Works does not maintain a website. The exclusive distributor of Empire Bottle Works products in St. Louis maintains a facebook page here. That page has a number of pictures of “Empire Soda Girl” holding Empire Bottling Works beverages, but does not say much about the company. If I really cared enough, I could find out more information about Empire Bottling Works. Its telephone number is prominently, and uniquely, placed right in the middle of the label. I don’t care enough, but if anyone is interested Empire Bottling Works can be reached at 401- 253-7117.
As for the soda, Empire Bottling Works Root Beer would be much better if it had more flavor. As it stands, this soda is far too watery. It has slightly caramel and slightly malty tones. It is also light on sweetness. I wish there was more to say about Empire Bottling Works Root Beer, but in the end it is just a fairly dull and watery soda.
Overall Score: 5 of 10.
