I don’t drink anymore, so when I found out there was a brewery, that focuses on ROOT BEER, I was intrigued to know more. At the recent Yelp event, I got to meet Stephen Norborg and taste Thunder Beast root beer. Oh. My. Goodness. It was like nothing I’ve tasted before. Its smooth, with a hint of maple to start, sweet but not cloyingly so, and ends with a note of butterscotch. I’m not talking yellow wrapped grandma butterscotch candy, but like a smooth buttery one like a Werthers.
It’s a small, locally operated company, which is fine by me, because I think that’s what makes it so great. After talking to him you can tell he’s got a great passion for his craft, and you can taste the love he puts into his product. Currently they only have their root beer by the bottle, but I hear there’s a delicious ginger beer that shows up at farmers markets and trade shows. I gotta figure out how to get my hands on one!
According to their site:
Our root brewskis of freedom are:
- Caffeine Free
- Corn Syrup Free
- Gluten Free
- Crafted With Passion and Care
- Drank Heavily by Us
- A Suspected Love Potion
- Made With real American Thunder
I’m going to definitely need a keg of this in the near future. Maybe Mardi Gras!
