I love root beer. I drink it whenever it's offered except for those occasions a brewpub brews their own root beer, I choose beer 10 times out of 10. But that is the only exception. I love root beer dum dums, root beer barrels candy and root beer floats. When I heard that Shatto makes a root beer milk I was immediately intrigued.
I got my chance to try Shatto's root beer milk this morning. Someone brought donuts into the office and I thought some milk would go perfect with a donut. So I walked over to Cosentino's market and picked up a pint. My plans to enjoy a donut with my milk were quickly dashed when I got pulled into a meeting right when I arrived back at my desk. I took my root beer milk with me.
I took my first drink as I sat down in the meeting room and was immediately impressed. It was everything I'd hoped it would be. I felt like dancing. The root beer flavor wasn't overpowering it was nearly perfectly balanced. I felt like telling everyone in the meeting that I was drinking the best pint of milk I've ever had in my life, but I bit my tongue. I only told the person sitting next to me.
Now I think Shatto needs to concentrate on perfecting the grandest dream known to man, a stout milk. That's about the only milk that could top root beer milk. I guess I'll settle for trying banana milk and getting my fill of root beer milk in the meantime.
