The third root beer from the mini mart across the street from Safeco Field in 1998 that doesn’t actually exist anymore sadly. This was made by the Old Dominion Brewing Company, before it was bought and its original location was torn down. So it’s from the old Old Dominion Brewing Company. This is made with Virginia honey which must be better than regular honey or they wouldn’t make such a point about it. I love a root beer with honey. Sadly the label doesn’t give me much to go on about. It’s got some lines going out like a fan, and it’s got its name. No conundrums or cliches or ridiculousness. Just plain classy gourmet root beer. No real special story about how I found it either, you’ve heard that before. So I guess on to the review I wrote 17 years ago.
Very nice Body. Head is good but it could use more. The Bite is nice but not too much and the Aftertaste is pleasant.
Alright, I’ll admit I needed to write more back then. It’s a shame I didn’t but I’ll tell you this is a solid and delicious root beer. You know those honey brews always do it for me. Especially when they’ve got maltodextrin in them. It makes them feel so good in your mouth. At the time I originally reviewed it, it was the first solid four kegs I’d ever given. See how it rates against other root beers.
You can still find this under the same name at Luray Caverns in Virginia. Still taste great!
Any idea where to buy!??? Came across this last month in Luray.. blown away
