Kovac passed down his family’s beer making tradition by working tirelessly with his son to craft the first version of “Not Your Father’s Root Beer.” At 5.9% ABV, the silky, smooth and satisfying finish is unmatched in flavor. It appeals to craft beer aficionados as well as those who don’t typically drink beer but crave something unique.View all products by Small Town Brewery
Not Your Father's Root Beer is the most sought after hard root beer on the market today, and rightfully so. No, this is not root beer, but it sure does taste like it. Inspired by the old world beer style known as a 'gruit', the brewmaster and founder of Not Your Father's spent his days experimenting with beer recipes in which different herbs and spices are used in place of traditional hops. Caraway, anise, even some weird herb known as mugwort could be used as a bittering agent to balance the sweetness of the body of the beer. Over time, and likely after a bit too much fun with his experimentation, the recipe for this hard root beer was formed and the world was forever changed.
Not Your Father's Root Beer pours like a soda - dark brown and bubbly. It drinks like a soda - smooth with just a bit of a tickle in the back of your throat. It tastes, well, remarkably like the root beer that we all grew up and loved - dulcet with notes of vanilla, sarsaparilla, and anise. It has a lively carbonation and a pleasant sweetness that makes it all too delicious and at 5.9% abv, you better watch out.
Whether or not you haven't had a root beer since that one time you were playing catch with your dad back in grade school or if you frequent the local hamburger stand on weekends for a bit of that taste of nostalgia, Not Your Father's Root Beer is a wonderful replacement for your standard beer. It's a great treat when served ice cold on a hot afternoon, enjoying your front yard with kids of your own playing in the sprinklers. Pair it with anything that a standard root beer would go well with… patty melts, onion rings, a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
