Not Your Father’s Root Beer is all the rage right now. It’s almost impossible to find it in Michigan, but I was able to procure a couple of cases on a recent road trip.
Of course, that meant stopping at a couple of stores in different towns, after making numerous phone calls, but it was completely worth it.
For those unfamiliar with Not Your Father’s Root Beer, it is produced by Small Town Brewery and is an ale brewed with spices to make it taste just like root beer.
