    Virgil’s is pretty good. I don’t care for Boyton’s too much. IBC is a solid readily available choice. All of these have been purchased at the local g-store.

    Dang! Butterscotch Root Beer is my all-time favorite.  Henry Weinhard’s is a close second.  There’s a shop near me that has over a hundred different flavors of soda, many of them root beers, and those two stood out for me from all the others I’ve tried.

    Dorthy Molter rootbeer here in Minnesota. She was known as, "The Rootbeer Lady". She made rootbeer out of her house in the middle of the wilderness. The only way to her house was by boat or airplane. Snowmobiles in the winter. My wifes grandpa used to bring her goods by snowmobile/boat as there were no roads. She was the last person to be allowed to live within the boundary waters. (As it was illegal but they granted her acceptance)

    Kind of a cool read if anyone is interested:

    When I was stationed at Grand Forks I spent a few photo vacations in the Boundary Waters, I remember reading this story!  Thanks for the memory.   :)

    Do they still make I.B.C in the brown colored beer bottles?  Always got a kick out of that as a kid.

    Nothing like making your own. Williams Brewing carries Gnome extracts, Their root beer is excellent, want to try their Spicy Ginger Beer.

    Anything you try will be better than A&W. Stop by a Whole Paycheck. Places like that usually carry a good selection of stuff and you can build a six pack as well.

    Check your local beer brewer.  I have been to a number of them that make root beer.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    FYI:  Safrole, found in sassafras trees used to flavor root beer is a precursor chemical stock used to manufacture MDA and MDMA.
