Good evening all. Just curious if anyone has tasted Birch beer. I have some A-treat full bottles and the cap says Birch beer . I'm assuming it tastes like root beer. It's not to common up here in Northern Indiana. Never heard of it! Thanks all!
Looks like it was bottled in Allentown pa. Thanks for the feedbackI remember seeing it when I lived on the west coast, not sure if I ever tried it or not but I believe that it is similar to root beer. I haven't seen it out here, which is odd since we have birches here and they don't have them on the west coast. I'll have to try it next time I come across a bottle for sale.
And in fact all the good guys in the Westerns of old asked for a sarsaparilla instead of a whiskey when they went into the local swinging door saloons...Never could understand why it was called Birch beer, when in fact it comes from the root of a Sassafras tree. Years ago it was called Sarsaparilla and was a quack medicine for all kinds of ailments!!!
