Where do you find "HANK'S" ??
Ann brought us a six-pack of "Dang's" Butterscotch Root Beer when we visited Milwaukee last November. It is a real oddity. I hope she will bring a six-pack to Mobile so that many of you can sample it.
Sprecher's is very good. We could buy it here last year, but now it seems to be off the shelves... Same with Cheerwine. I got Paul to pick up some Cheerwine to bring to Mobile for Samples!
We used to make and bottle our own, using the Hires Extract and recipe. We even had a manual bottle capper...in the days before screw-caps. Unfortunately we had several bottles in a batch explode due to unstable temperature control during the 'aging' process. They damaged our laundry room and the flying glass came very close to hurting one of the kids. That ended our experiment with Home-Brewing Root Beer. The earlier batches were pretty good.
