Gray's Root Beer - Southern Wisconsin Brewed
We wandered over to Kenosha one afternoon recently to make a stop at the Mars Cheese Castle and while we were out we, stopped at The Garage for a few burgers and root beers.
When we asked, "Do you have a good sarsaparilla?". The didn't say "Sioux City Sarsaparilla". But they said "Gray's".
That's a good one.
So, we all enjoyed a few bottles of Grays and it was tasty. I've never heard of the stuff, but a quick look around the Web, I discovered it is from Janesville, Wisconsin by a family that has been making beers, ales and root beers for more than 150 years. And, according to this review on the Soda Jerks, it is a local Southern Wisconsin delicacy.
...The root beer recipe dates back 140 years and is made with pure cane sugar. It’s a nice grog, good creamy head, rich vanilla flavor and decent carbonation. It’s one of the better root beers I’ve tasted. It’s only available in southern Wisconsin as far as I know, so a road trip might be in order.Find yourself at a Supper Club or burger joint in Southern Wisconsin? Get yourself a Gray's.
Friends like these, huh Gary? That's right, Dude.
