    My question is… Why not just drink root beer? It tastes the EXACT same and you can get it at 7-11 for 1/10th of the price. You wanna get drunk, take shots of whatever.

    I quit drinking coffee stouts and just started drinking 7-11 coffee too! Man what a decrease in my monthly beverage bill and liquid calorie consumption. You're really onto something here!

    The broudy's by my house has Mission Hard Root Beer, which I heard is awesome, is this better?

    I've never tried Mission's. It's definitely better than Sprechers.

    NYFRB tastes better and has alcohol! So what about PB&J, Maple Bacon, Last Snow, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, etc beers? You feel the same way about them as well?

    I was fortunate enough to score a bottle of 3 Sons Irish Winter last fall. Awesome beer.... tastes just like a great irish coffee (sub in awesome coffee stout for regular coffee). As I was drinking it I thought, man why don't I just stop at any bar and get a fucking irish coffee - gimmicky and novelty to the max. Think of it's trade value (cost) compared to the cost of an actual fucking irish coffee

    Agreed. Those beers are awesome (No Crusts, Last Snow, etc). Not that NYFRB wasn't tasty when I got one in a trade, but I couldn't tell the difference between it and an IBC root beer. Didn't taste the alcohol and it didn't taste anything like a beer. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it. To me it's just a novelty "beer" as well.

    You need to go to Chicago and try the 11 and 20 percent NYFRB. Now THATS worth it!

    And there it is, folks. If I'm going to drink some extremely sugary root beer, at least give it some kick.

    I like the novelty of it and I'm glad I got the chance to try it, but I probably wouldn't buy a 6-pack, little too sweet for me

    I have to agree, and I still have 8 left in the fridge, after the first couple the novelty wore off. Don't get me wrong I think its awesome.

    But don't the shots make up for the other 9/10 of the price?
    I agree it is a novelty beer and I'd prefer a Yoo Hoo over a Moo Hoo and Grapefruit Juice over GF Sculpin too for pure taste, but the latter makes my family and friends more bearable.

    Anyone know if this has hit So FL yet? Will be down there and would love to pick some up.:slight_smile:

    My reply was a bit unclear, I was asking if anyone had sighted it in Orlando yet. I whiffed on Sunday Morning Stout and I'm hoping to avoid the same on this.

    NYFRB is in Orlando now. I know it's at Total Wine Millenia. Can't speak for any other place. Millenia got a decent sized shipment though. Cheers!

    Is Total Wine treating it as a limited release (behind the counter)?

    Definitely not a "behind the counter" limited release and there seems to be a ton of it in So FL now. TW Lauderdale got 30 cases and so did TW Plantation. And those stating this tastes just like A & W RB are correct. pure soda taste. Would love to see the brewing process on this as there is no hop presence whatsoever.
