The Other Beer

By OWEN MORRIS

A couple of weeks ago, taste-testers at The New York Times sampled 25 root beers. They included a lot of root beers that aren’t available in the Kansas City area and, while I trust the Times that Abita is a good root beer, I’m not driving all the way to Louisiana just to find out.

So I rounded up four of my root beer-loving coworkers for a test of brews that can be found in normal Kansas City stores. After the jump are the results from worst to first, along with a quote that summed up the general consensus about each root beer.
