My favorite beverage of all, other than pure water, it is a drink that I cannot refuse, nor a drink that has a taste like no other: Root Beer. My life is steeped in the tradition of Root Beer. Although I believe I am the only person who enjoys it in my family, I remember always having this drink throughout my life, even when no one else wanted it–I was asking for it. Today, I buy 2L bottles from the corner store regularly. Since I don’t, or very rarely, have alcoholic drinks, Root Beer is as close as I get to drinking any type of Beer, at home, or in my social circles.
I have made Root Beer myself. Although the taste varies a lot between sessions, or brewing-kits, I seem to favour the store brands because of time, resources and costs. I just cannot seem to wait the required time for the various brewing kits to finish before I can drink it. Like anything you can make yourself, the accomplishment of just knowing that I can make my own batch of Root Beer is a bitter-sweet feeling.
