These are the best when you have the taste for homemade root beer.

I Am A Big Fan Of Root Beer

I remember when I was growing up, I was first introduced to root beer by my father. We were having lunch at an old school drive-in.

He suggested that I should order a root beer for my beverage to go along with my burger and fries.

It took just one sip to fall in love. It would become my beverage of choice for a long time.

My mom would buy generic brand soda and they did have root beer. It was probably the tastiest of all the flavors. So, it worked out for me back in those days.

Nowadays, I do not drink a lot of pop but if I can find a good homemade root beer, I will definitely order it.
