Root Beer Soda Tasting Results – (Round 2)

By Posted in - Soda Tasting & Vintage Bottled Soda on December 10th, 2014 0 Comments

This past Monday Dec. 8th and Tuesday Nov. 9th we held our annual Root Beer Soda Tasting Event featuring 10 different Root Beers from across the Nation.  Root Beer is by far the most requested Soda Tasting Event we do, and with only doing each flavor once a year many customers were really looking forward to the 2014 one.

The attendee’s had the opportunity to learn about the history of Root Beer in general, as well as a brief history on each of the 10 different Root Beers that we tried that night. The feedback from the event has been nothing but positive. Read what one of our attendee’s had to say about the event HERE.

We just sampled 10 of our growing list of now 60 different Root Beers that we have available in the shop, and asked our attendee’s to rate them on a scale of 0 to 5. With 10 people each night, for a total of 20 people rating them, each Root Beer had a potential of 100 points. Here are the 2014 results;

  1. Dang! Root Beer(Milwaukee, WI) – 83 points
  2. Bulldog Root Beer (Fresno, CA) – 82 points
  3. III Daschounds Root Beer (Cudahy, WI) – 74 points
