Anyone had the homemade root beers some places sell?  I know a few restaurants locally that do that, so I assume that's pretty common in other cities too... 

It's a strong taste.  Lot of the Licorice aftertaste generally.  Is this something folks dig?

A lot of places here that sell a lot of micro-brews tend to be the places with the home made Root Beer on tap.  Love that stuff!  My grandmother used to make her own, and let it sit in the rafters of the house.  Man, that was good stuff.

My two favorite local Root Beers at the moment = Killebrew and 1919 Draft.

Ice cold Killebrew is a perfect match for an outdoor baseball game on a nice summer night and the 1919 Draft (gotta get it by the keg) is a common sight at summer parties round these parts.

Damn.  I may need to travel to MN.  That's pretty awesome stuff, especially that you can get it by the keg.  Can you get that stuff anywhere, or just particular places?  That Killebrew seems to have a baseball theme going on.  Figured maybe it was sold only at the Twins park or soemthing.

Many local Twin Cities liquor stores have the kegs of 1919 so it's pretty easy to get.  Good good stuff.

Those of us closer to the source (like me who lives three towns over from New Ulm) can buy 1919 by the can...they also have a station at the Liquor store where you can fill growlers

Other point of note...Mrs OCB is from New Ulm the home of 1919

Hmmm, I wonder if you can get 1919 shipped?  I'm intrigued by this root beer now.

Well here is a map from their website:  http://www.1919rootbeer.com/availability/

Or you could possibly find a website like this that prices pop like single malt scotch.  http://www.sodafinder.com/collections/all/01regular (sorry they don't stock 1919).

And it did answer my question about Green River being a local Chicago (soda) pop.

I love when I go visit family in the south and they ask if I want a Coke.  Sure, sounds good, I say.  What would you like? (Er, I just agreed to a Coke!)  Confusing at first.
