You might have stumbled onto this page and after sifting through a few of the reviews are asking, “Why would anyone review root beer?” Well, the answer is really quite simple. I do it as a service to you, my readers. There are many different types of root beer beyond what the typical consumer encounters on their local grocery store shelves. Too often the only root beer a person experiences is a big name brand that offers very little in terms of distinctive flavor.
This website is devoted to those people who want to step out of the grocery aisle and into the wonderful world of root beer that exists outside of the confines of your local supermarket. It is taking that first step that is often the most overwhelming since there are so many different types of root beer in existence. The goal of this site is to help provide you with some of idea of where to start on your root beer journey by providing simple, concise, and easy to understand reviews.
I would encourage you to check out my reviews but don’t let my letter grade of a particular brew scare you away if you want to try something I have given low marks. I will occasionally peruse other root beer review websites and find that some of my reviews are the polar opposite of the marks a different reviewer has given to the same brew. Remember that reviewing root beer is highly subjective. The things that I think make a good brew might be different for you. To me, that is the beauty of root beer. There are so many varieties that anyone should be able to find something that they like.
Finally, please read this review before you check out any others. When I decided to review root beers, I wanted to do so in a way that was accessible to anyone. In order to do that, I had to find a brew that I would classify as average that is widely available and that I could compare every other brew to. I had to do this so that even someone who is new to gourmet root beer could have a standard to compare other brews to. I decided that A&W Root Beer would be my “average” brew. If you read this review first, it will give more meaning to the other reviews because it will help you understand why an “A” rated root beer is so much better than a “C” or less rated root beer.
Check out my reviews and check back often as I try to add new brews fairly regularly. Thanks for stopping by!
