Grand Teton Brewing Company Kettle Brewed Soda Root Beer

When Armageddon finally comes and those of us who survive are hidden away in different pockets of world figuring out how to survive technology will not be our savior. I realize that sounds a bit evangelical, but I don’t believe any sort of omnipotent being will save us either. What will keep the survivors alive is reverting to the old ways. Working the earth with our hands and learning how to build things, instead of relying on contractors. If there’s something that you want you will have to figure out how to produce it yourself, or barter with someone who does. If you ignore all of the death and the end of civilization as we know it, this actually sounds appealing.

When I’m living in my mountain residence that my friends and I have constructed I hope one of us had good enough sense to learn iron work so that they could forge us a kettle to make our own root beer. This bottle of soda is exactly what I hope/expect our home brew would taste like. It’s heavy on the wintergreen and the sassafras, just as any good mountain brew should be. It’s a nice herbal root beer that screams of the mountains…and licorice. This is by no means a standard “store brand” root beer. Care was put into brewing this, not just adding flavor syrup to carbonated water.

I wonder how many batches it would take our survivor crew to get our soda to this level. I hope not too many because I the idea of enjoying my own root beer that I brewed in a metal pot over a bonfire is so appealing that it’s killing me.
