Root Beer Reviews for the Rest of Us Reader’s Choice Awards #3

It is that time of the year again! Here are the top brews based upon your votes. The top five brews remained the same this year but their positions shifted quite a bit. I also included a few more brews in order to keep things interesting and to give you an idea of some of the other root beers that your fellow root beer fans have rated highly.

Here are the rules:

1. A brew must have at least 30 votes to be considered

2. The point value is as follows- A=5, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0

3. The points are the total of the votes received as of today

4. The winning brews get added to a special “reader’s choice” category on the blog to make them easy to find and to distinguish them from all the other brews

The winners are…

1. Boylan’s Root Beer– 65 Votes (47 A’s) totaling 270 points

2.  IBC Root Beer– 64 Votes totaling 230 points

3. Sprecher Root Beer– 46 Votes totaling 201 points

8. Abita Root Beer– 34 Votes totaling 146 points
