New beer in town....

WE just shared a bottle of an unbelievable beverage, Appalachian Root Beer, made about 25 miles north of here in the capital city of Pennsylvania; Harrisburg. The taste reminds me of my first root beer I had as a child, a long time ago. Pungent and sweet, the flavor is robust. A&W, look out, there is a new kid in town. I'm thinking now, this root beer is the best there is and perhaps a beer tasting of the root kind be made at our next meet. I'll be bringing some of this with me for others to sample, I think it is the best there is......

While up in Osoyoos I made the mistake of buying a bag of licorice. We finally opened it last week and WOW, real old fashioned licorice. I went looking and finally found a reasonable source for it at a place called vitacost.
Not sure how it would go with root bear but by itself it's yummy if you like licorice.
I wonder if they make a sugar free version of their root beer? Sacrilege I know but a piece of licorice I can get away with, not a bottle of root beer.

Edit, took a look and they do make a diet version. I'll have to try it when I am far enough north to find it.

According to their site they use Stevia, which to me has a mild licorice taste if it's the not non purified type.

I love licorice, particularly from Australia sold in Trader's Joe. Will have to try the Osoyoos source.....

Not a fan of pop of any kind really. Have to save my calories for tastier stuff, but I love a good strong licorice.
