Third Annual Decatur Root Beer Festival -- This Sunday!!!

Third Annual
Decatur Root Beer Festival
Sunday, October 20, 2013
2 to 4 p.m.

There's lots new this year.

First, we're moving the Root Beer Festival to the day after the Decatur Craft Beer Festival. Parking and accessibility to the shop are major issues during the Beer Fest, but not a problem on Sunday at all.

I believe that this is the final list of beverages that are going to be poured:

A&W Root Beer
Boylan Creamy Red Birch Beer
Boylan Root Beer
Bulldog Root Beer
Dang's Butterscotch Root Beer
Dr. Brown's Root Beer
IBC Root Beer
Jones Root Beer
Krista's Do-It-Yourself Root Beer
Sioux City Sarsparilla
Virgil's Root Beer
Virgil's Special Bavarian Nutmeg Root Beer

Americana Huckleberry Soda
Boylan Creme Soda
Ginger People Ginger Beer
Jones Cream Soda
Red Rock Golden Ginger Ale
Reed's Cherry Ginger Brew
Reed's Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Cream Soda
Reed's Premium Ginger Brew
Reed's Raspberry Ginger Brew
Reed's Spiced Apple Cider
Regatta Ginger Beer
Sprecher's Orange Dream Soda
Virgil's Orange Cream Soda

Some of these are in very limited supply and may not be available during the time you do your tasting.

Not a single one of these beverages contain caffeine. Nearly all are sweetened with pure sugar cane. (The highly commercial sodas, such as A&W, use high fructose corn syrup. You'll notice the difference.)
