I love root beer and this question poped into my head yesterday.
What is best root beer?
Other - Explain
There's a restaurant I've been to called Sweetwater Tavern. They make their own root beer and it's so yummy. I had a chance to have some from another restaurant called Gordon Biersch, but they were all out
Locally we have Triple XXX root beer, which is awesome. But as far as major brands go, I'll have to say Barq's. It's also the only root beer I know that's caffeinated
Why don't I ever see Mug root beer around anymore? Is it just sold on the West Coast? I haven't seen Mug since I moved to NY. Barq's and A&W are good too but to me Mug was the best.
Sparky's root beer from Knox Brewing Co. is really good. They are native to California and are small time, so I doubt they ship to many places. Great stuff if you ever come across it.
