Santa Cruz Root Beer



My quest to find the perfect root beer continued with this oddity, purchased at the Ashbury Market. As you might expect, my quest will continue. This organic root beer is clear. Wearing its lack of artificial coloring on its sleeve might allow Santa Cruz to feel morally superior, but, come on, root beer should be brown and served in a frosty mug. (OK, I’m the one who put it in a wine glass.) Anyway, the flavor was not particularly rooty. It was more gingery and spicy. It’s drinkable, but not really satisfying as a root beer. Next!
