Hard Root Beer – Not for the Kids

Sprecher Hard Root Beer

Sprecher Brewing Co. is known for their gourmet sodas, particularly their rich and creamy root beer. To satisfy customer requests, they’ve released an alcoholic version of the old-fashioned drink. With 5 percent alcohol by volume, it’s sold for $5 per four-pack. The fermented root beer combines traditional root beer flavors with bourbon and oak, which quite honestly sounds delicious. The initial release is available at the brewery’s gift shop and a few select locations in southeastern Wisconsin, then they plan to go into large-scale production.

Hard lemonade is losing ground. Could hard root beer be the next big malt beverage? Only time will tell. In the meantime, I can’t wait to try an alcoholic root beer float.
