Let there be root beer!
While recently doing research on soda pop tax, I got a hit on Google for a little place called Galco's Soda Pop Stop, which happens to be in a neighboring town. As I perused their homepage, I stumbled upon a vast trove of root beers, a few familiar, but most had strange names such as: Dog n Suds, Red Arrow, and Squamscot. So a new quest was presented to me: I was to seek the holy grail! Wait...no...that's not quite right... Ah, yes! This is it: to seek the ultimate root beer!
Once my 30 days of root beer are up, I plan to continue sampling this delicious beverage and will post my insights from time to time. I talked to the owner of Galco's today and he said that they have enough different root beers to last me two straight months without repeating, but I'll tackle the other month's worth at a more leisurely pace. To kick off the root beer reviews, I will be using my "A" level baseline root beer, Henry Weinhard's, so that I might remind myself (and my tastebuds), what a quality root beer tastes like so I can more accurately judge the others. Look for that in the near future!
