You have to check out Root Beer Revelry in Galena
I’m not a huge fan of pop, but I am a huge fan or root beer. Yes, I know I just said pop. I grew up using the word coke for all soda varieties, but after living in the midwest for the past 3 years pop has grown on me. In the grocery store we have a pop aisle and that’s just what they call it up here, but I digress. I love root beer. If it’s on the menu I order it.
While exploring main street in Galena with Travel with Sara we came across a shop called Root Beer Revelry. I had to stop in.
There was root beer everywhere!
Aisle after aisle of root beer. I have never seen so many varieties. It also made me a bit excited to know there were others in the world that really liked root beer like I did.
Sara graciously humored me although I don’t think she quite understood the obsession. We got our root beers (two brands I have never tried) and enjoyed them. I sure wish we had a root beer store closer.

What’s your favorite brand of root beer?

I remember A & W Root Beer Drive-ins. Yep, dating myself.
We still have them in southern Minnesota!

Root Beer is a comfort food. I remember my dad taking us to the A&W car hop and getting little tiny children’s mugs of root beer.
Barbara Adams says
Craft movement has called to me to slow down and relish the best of any category. Finding a new root beer allows me to be conscious of my decision and demands that I pay attention to the subtleties and not just throw it back my throat.

Never knew there were so many flavors of root beer.

I love root beer as well and my dad was famous for making us the occasional root beer float. Aaron has inherited that love and every year for his birthday I get him personalized bottles of root beer with his picture and a caption on them. He loves them!
What a cool gift idea! I’d never drink them though if they were personalized. I must have got my root beer love from you 😉
