In honor and remembrance, I’m having a Dad’s tonight.
Last week I popped into my local Bevmo and came across this collection. It’s ten root beers, two of each brand. Why they couldn’t just make it a twelve pack? I don’t know. But seeing it reminded me of the time I once had my own root beer taste test in Hawaii. So I picked up the pack and took it home. Got carded by the way – someone wasn’t paying attention.
I was impressed by Dad’s. It had been a while. And I was new to the bottle variety. I grew up with cans. And now that I have much more appreciation for root beer, I gotta say they make a nice product. It’s smooth, it’s a made with cane sugar, and it even even has it’s own iPhone app. No lie.
But none of them could unseat my all-tine favorite: Virgil’s Special Edition Bavarian Nutmeg.Virgil’s is still number one (and number two with it’s regular root beer). In fact what originally attracted me to the root beer display was this Virgil’s Keg. I mean just look at that mother… father.
One day friend. One day.
