IBC in the bottle is great, love me some A&W and Barqs. MUG is still good but man I love me some Root Beer.

And Root Beer Tapper is one of my favorite games too.

Barq's is my favorite. IBC is also good. Mug and A&W are a bit too sweet for my taste, but they're better than no root beer.

Nothing beats old fashioned Sasparilla though.

They just opened a beer growler near us, and along with beer, they also have cider and root beer. I'm not a fan myself but my husband is.

A&W has that awesome aged vanilla though, it gives it a sort of "creaminess" to it.

Sasparilla? Neverheard of that. Where can I find it?

I like A&W's cream soda better than their root beer, but hey, any root beer works in a pinch.

Sarsaparilla (I typo'd) is similar to root beer, but is made with Sarsaparilla root instead of Sassafras. It's pretty hard to find in most places, but it can be bought online. I first had it at Wall Drug in South Dakota.

Absolutely.

Never tried it as I think root beer is vile.

I've always wanted something drinkable that I can put ice cream in other than brandy.  I've heard of using stouts but that sounds kinda nasty.

You could always get alcohol infused ice cream.

I've never liked floats of any kind. You could go the "alcoholic" Dr. Pepper route, but then I would call into question your manhood.

If I were you, I would try a modified white russian. Back off a little on the cream perhaps.

Or an Irish coffee.

Good coffee over a few scoops of real vanilla ice cream is quite good.

I hope you think Vanilla Coke is worse than Root Beer, orthonorm.

I can't abide either.

You know I went to a restaurant recently and they were claiming to offer 100+ Coke products.

I was like: wet the bed! (Henceforth to be known as WTB!)

They had this contraption:

For a passing moment, I knew the pangs of grief for the world.

There's this place in New York where they make vodka floats. Delicious.
