i review root beers, birch beers, and sarsaparillas.  along with the occasional spruce beer too.  so i quite like them myself.  i have come to enjoy Virgil's although when i first had it a decade or so ago i was not a huge fan.  my current fav is 1919, available only on tap or in mini kegs out of MN, it is the yum yum. http://rootbeerbarrel.com
