Mercury Brewing Company Birch Beer

Mercury Brewing Company Birch Beer

When you hear the words “birch beer” you get certain expectations in your head. Images of a root beer that has evolved dance across your mind. It’s crisp. It’s clean. It’s woodsy. One thing that does not enter your thoughts is vanilla. Definitely not crappy vanilla, that is for sure. Yet, that is what is in this bottle. It taste like the company had a vat that was 1/3 filled with birch beer, and when they went to make more they accidentally put in the ingredients for cream soda. In a blind taste test I would guess that this was a store brand cream soda that someone put a little extra baking vanilla into. Would I be wrong, or would Mercury Brewing Company be wrong for claiming this was a birch beer? You be the judge. Actually don’t waste your time and money on it.
