Henry Weinhard Root Beer
I haven't had a Birch Beer in the longest time, love that too!
I saw Ginger Beer at the mega-mart the other day,
almost bought it just to try.

I've tried a lot of different beers over the years. Many before all the microbreweries started cropping up. Some years ago (the late 1980s), I grew tired of Budweiser and tried a number of different beers (Lowenbrau, Heineken, etc.). I found I liked Samuel Adams beers. Winter Lager is my favorite with Boston Lager as my 'go to' beer. In the early years it was a crap shoot whether or not you could find Sam Adams in a bar or market. Not so much anymore. It's fairly wide spread.

Once a year we go to Aruba. They don't usually have Sam Adams except for one year. Then I'm stuck with Heineken, Amstel light, Bud or Bud light and the local brew, Balashi. The Balashi isn't worth drinking. I don't drink light beer so my choices are limited.

Haven't had a root beer float in ages (might have something to do with being diabetic). I might hust have to get some A&W and some good ice cream, watch my carbs really closely for a day, and have one, just because I remember them be so fantastic. Don't know if my grandkids have had one yet. I'll have to make sure they get that opportunity. They generally like my treats (S'mores bars anyone?)

A couple-a years ago DH and I took a road trip to Colorado and visited the Coors Brewery in Golden.
WOW!
At the end of the tour they give a some samples.
They had just come out with that season's small batch beer, can't remember what it was called, but they told me that it's only sold in a very small radius to Golden.
I was lucky enough to even have one at Coors Field in Denver as we watched the Rockies play. What an experience.

Here are two of my favorite beers for right now. Though the "right now: has been now for at least 5-6 yeas.

Pilsner Urquell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

and I like dark in:

Warsteiner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I do try regularly local microbrewery products, some of them are really good.
