Berghoff Root Beer
This is part of a series of posts on juices and unique drinks that I have come across. Everyone knows the Pepsis and Cokes of this world and many sites cover the wines and beers, but I am bringing to you the rest of the beverage world

The Berghoff is a resturant in Chicago that has a long history (it opened in 1898). That history includes a root beer recipe that has been bottled and sold outside of the Windy City. I found a bottle at the Fresh Market in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is labeled as a draft style root beer and it made with cane sugar, no high fructose here. It has a creamy mouth feel with true root beer flavor, without a lot of head.

3stars The flavor is not what you get from store brand and mass market produced root beer. But I felt it was still missing something. It had a little bit of spice to it, but a little more would have been great. If the depth of flavor could be turned up on this root beer, I would be able to turn up the stars. Yet I still woudn’t mind having one of these again.
