Birch Beer: Soft Drink Review

Boylan's Creamy Red Birch Beer

Upon a trip to Pennsylvania I discovered an old fashioned drink called Birch Beer, created from the bark of the birch tree, which may be found all over wooded areas of the state. It’s non-alcoholic and somewhat  resembles root-beer in taste, with exception to the typical crimson-red tinge. There are vast varieties of Birch Beer, found all over the United States, and ranging in taste.

Next up on Adventure Writer: More reviews! Hopefully I’ll have Gulliver’s Travels up soon – and after it, another barrage of posts to keep up on the Post-A-Day 2011 challenge.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I have never heard of that. When I was a little girl, people made sassafras tea, it is from a tree root. I recall it tasting really good. I read that it was used to make root beer. I guess people don’t make it much, because I guess it gives people liver damage.

  2. Ah yes. It also seems in most root bear they have resorted to artificial sassafras flavoring now, due to FDA regulation.
