Fine Soda Thread

I'm a fan of fine sodas. If you find some obscure types please post a little review here.

Today I picked up a bottle of Boyland Root Beer.

It's made with Sugar Cane and Yucca Extract.

Well, to me, it tastes like ass juice.

I give it a 4 out of 10.

I was talking to my son just the other day about Root Beers and Ginger Ales, and how I enjoy trying different brands. A cola for the most part is a cola, same with all the other flavors. One of my easy to find favorites is Stewarts Ginger Beer, and Root Beer. Also the old standby Dads. Vernors Ginger Ale is great.

I've been drinking root beer for years and without a doubt, Maine Root Beer is by far the best. Give it a try if you see it.

Is that similar to Boylan?

I had their cream soda out of a fountain machine a few weeks ago. I wasn't impressed.

Stewart's has some decent pop.
The local brewery (Blacksmith Brewing in Stevensville) makes pretty good root beer.

Thing is, with pop it's really not brewed. It's just flavored syrup with carbonated water. Easy to do at home....but I don't drink much pop.

A buddy of mine here in Durango owns Zuberfizz (I have no commercial connection). They make good pop! I would like to take credit for talking him into making ginger ale several years ago. It is my favorite.

An awesome root beer and you can taste the honey they use.

And SSS I had some of Boylan's other flavors from a fountain over at a local burrito place a few years back and I can't give a full review but I remember thinking they were pretty good.

I've made it my goal in life to try all of the root beers (and similar sarsaparillas, birch beers, etc.) that I can find. After many, many varieties, this is my current favorite: Abita Root Beer.

Maine Root pumpkin pie soda is in season right now. It's not pumpkin flavored; rather it is flavored with the traditional spices of pumpkin pie.

A favorite around here is Spruce Beer or Bierre d'Epinette, some great home made stuff in those wire topped bottles. Great washing down a big plate of Poutine!

This was my favorite place for it (owner passed last year) but it's still home made and mildly alcoholic but sold at another pattaterie (chip stand, wagon, restaurant).

Tastes like there's good old fashioned turpentine in it.

When I was a kid my father made root, spruce and real beers at home. I recall hearing the occasional poping from the attic and we knew another bottle had exploded.

Plus the occasional Triumph, BSA, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and KTM but who's counting

One of my favorite sodas is Manhattan Special Espresso Soda. Why "Manhattan", I have no idea since it's made in Brooklyn, but they've been making it since 1895, so I guess they know what they're doing.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but this has a delicious full coffee flavor. You have to be careful opening it, very carbonated, gets a nice head on it when you pour.

I love the flavor and buy it whenever I see it.

Also like some of the Dr. Brown's flavors, especially the bizarre Cel-ray celery soda.

Stewart's orange is pretty good, has somewhat of a creamsicle flavor to it.

I've made my own ginger beer, not that hard to do, and it's strong like nothing you can buy.

Ginger Beer

you haven't tried ginger beer until you've tried home-made ginger beer. But that being said, these guys really do a kick-ass job on their version...

I can vouch for that one as well. Gingerpeople easily make one of the best ginger beer around.

Blenheim ginger ale. Hot or Not So Hot! It can surprise you at the first sip.
