Hear me out first. There is this amazing beer. It is beer, but it tastes like root beer. Like exactly like root beer. Not Your Father's Root Beer is manufactured by Small Town Brewery and it is a must have for summer! Beer drinkers like it because it has a lot of interest. Non beer drinkers will love it because it tastes like pop!
And if you do what I did, and make an decadent grown up version of an old time favorite with it, you'll have to keep some on hand at all times because your grown up friends will want you to serve up this treat all summer long!
Grown Up Root Beer Float (makes one)
1 bottle of Not Your Father's Root Beer (chilled)
vanilla ice cream
Drizzle the inside of a large glass with about one or two tablespoons of chocolate syrup.
Then, in the same glass, add two scoops of the ice cream.
Finally, carefully pour the chilled beer over the ice cream. The beer will foam like a regular root beer float, so this is where an extra large glass comes in handy.
Serve with a straw for sipping and a spoon for scooping the extra ice cream.
Sit outside and enjoy being a grown up, while having a taste of childhood.
