Damn. 5.9%. Tastes very, very close to real root beer. I shit you not. I think I had a similar brew that was closer to 9-10% ABV. Second-most dangerous form of liquor I've encountered (the most dangerous is a binary effort between myself and an associate's white whiskey). You could down six of them and not have any problems until well past the point of no return.

Hmmm. I wonder what the defining characteristic of that recipe would be... I wonder if it would be as simple as a shitload of sugar, the rootbeer extract, and ale yeast, and let it ferment for 2 weeks.

I'd like to try it.

I had a Atwater Vanilla Coffee Porter for lunch. It tasted exactly like I expected.

You need vanilla. Probably also artificial flavour.

For homemade rootbeer? Yeah, and sassafras, and other stuff, but sassafras by itself is carcinogenic and fuck that. I'll just fake it with rootbeer extract.

Not root beer. Root beer flavoured beer.

A couple years ago, I was speculating on this shit and when it was going to happen. At least it's Vegas. Cue the overreaction:
That's when his mom's fiance started taking a closer look at the bottle's label and noticed it was an alcoholic root beer.

"He was really freaked out," said mom Adriana Schwab. "He asked me, am I going to die?"

Tyler has a heart defect and is on ADD medication, KTNV reported.

The server and manager came over and apologized, but Schwab isn't satisfied.

I'm betting it was something like this.

Doesn't this corny shit happen in schlock comedies with Long Island Iced Tea all the time? Life imitates non-art.

Regardless, read the labels on what you put in your body, dumb fuck. Case dismissed.

That's good stuff. I was told about it over the winter and have a single bottle left in my fridge right now.
