Hard root beer is proving itself to be this summer’s latest adult beverage trend, reports Bloomberg. And why not? Root beer is delicious, so boozy root beer must be even better. Not Your Father's Root Beer, from Small Town Brewery just outside Chicago, is the brew garnering the most buzz. It's earned the stunning user rating of 94 out of 100 points on Beer Advocate.
According to the brewery’s tasting notes, Not Your Father's Root Beer delivers a "silky, smooth and satisfying finish" that "appeals to craft beer aficionados as well as those who don’t typically drink beer but crave something unique." It’s an "ale with a hint of spice" and has a "bold, sweet, smooth and spicy" flavor profile. It's a root beer boasting a 5.9 percent ABV (alcohol by volume): more than a session ale or your typical beer, but less than a glass of wine.
Small Town’s huge and sudden popularity means you may have a little trouble getting your hands on the coveted bottle — although we snagged some for a taste test and tried it in-house at SheKnows Food. Watch our Periscope (@SheKnows) for the results. Spoiler alert: We thought it was pretty darn good.
