I consider myself to be somewhat of a root beer connoisseur. I have tried so many different types of root beer that I am a walking encyclopedia of the beverage. I’ve explored Virgil’s (considered one of the best–but I find to be a little complex and heavy on the licorice) and Stewart’s and Jones and IBC and Dad’s (a little weak) and countless others. I have my current favorites (Bulldog and Boylan’s are awesome) and I try to buy as many as I can get (difficult in my area without an hour’s drive or more), but there is one that has been practically impossible for me to obtain, and I was wondering if anyone here might have a line on it so I could give it a try.
Henry Weinhard’s is considered the best in so many lists, but it is almost exclusively sold on the west coast, and every establishment that I have located that would sell it to me online wants to charge a STUPID amount on shipping (a case of 24 bottles for about 25.00, plus 55.00 just to ship it?!?!?!
Any other root beer nuts try this, and if so what did you think? Any ideas how someone on the southeast coast could get this without paying insane amounts on shipping?
And since the thread is open, what are your favorites?
