They have a large selection of root beers and also have some great old time favorites, all in glass bottles. I haven't had a green river or grape Nehi in years and was excited to find them here.

Probably had over 100 varieties of root beer. Amazing for me and my daughter. They also sell flights of root beer. Great idea!

I had a great experience shopping here and the friendliest service I experienced in Galena. I can't wait to try all of the sodas he helped pick out! And the one on tap was awesome!

Love how they have cases for you to order and ship home - that was probably my favorite part. All the root beer we tried was fantastic!

We enjoy Galena for the the history, shopping and restaurants. Our grandsons always look forward to us buying a case of assorted root beer and sarsaparilla when we visit Galena. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about all of the different bottling companies

Love this place - you can get root beer, ginger beer, sarsaparilla, cream soda, etc. from a lot of different bottlers. They have it in bottles and on tap, and will make you a rootbeer float if you want! Cute, nice service, fun.
