6 Pack Root Beer Company is located in Moscow, Idaho. Right now they're only doing local farmers markets. The response to their sodas has been positive and the possibility of expanding could be on the horizon. They do all all their sodas from scratch in very small batches. You could definitely call this a blonde root beer. I'm sensing a sarsaparilla core, which turns to a noticeable creamy vanilla. The head is commendable and maintains quite nicely. The finish is more rich vanilla and is extremely smooth and refreshing. This brew is rather basic and I tend to gravitate to more complex root beers, but this is almost half root beer and half cream soda. It's an interesting take on root beer at the very least. 7/10.
Old City Soda hails from the great state of Ohio. Their headquarters are in Cleveland. They have only been around a couple years and are starting to gain traction in the craft soda world. I picked this brew up at a local restaurant in Columbus. Their root beer is a more traditional brew and is made from scratch. I'm starting to see more and more of these...I guess we live in a more health conscious world these days. I think they did an admirable job here. First, the head is extremely praiseworthy. It has a lighter sarsaparilla core with a touch of rootyness. Then it goes into a rich vanilla and sweet molasses undertones. The finish is spicy and has a fruity raisin notes, which is all too smooth and rather enjoyable, I wish I had access to more local brews! 7.5/10.
