I received complimentary Virgil’s Handcrafted Root Beer in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Today, August 6, 2021 is National Root Beer Float Day! We’ve been experiencing record-setting heat over the past few weeks, which leaves us looking for fun (and even delicious) ways to cool off. And what better way to cool off today than with a delicious Root Beer Float featuring Virgil’s Handcrafted Root Beer!
After trying to brew my own root beer at home, I can tell you that making a GOOD root beer is a science. I struggled to find the right balance of yeast to flavor to sugar, and in the end, I gave up after making a few batches. The much easier solution for me to enjoy a cool bottle of root beer is to just buy it at the store. But even then, I’m still looking for the hallmarks of a good root beer. For me, I want a good root beer flavor with no artificial flavors or preservatives. I found that root beer in Virgil’s Handcrafted Root Beer.

Virgil’s only uses all-natural ingredients, which means no preservatives, no aspartame, no high-fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, and no GMO ingredients. They brew their root beer in small batches by hand, resulting in a rich, full-flavored root beer. Virgil’s includes the flavor of fifteen different roots and spices in their root beer, and you can tell.
