Soda Pop Review : Intro To Sprecher Gourmet Sodas


I recently found this brand of sodas at my nearest and dearest Italian Deli/Ravioli establishment,  La Villa, in Willow Glen, CA.  The brand of soda is Sprecher Gourmet Sodas and they run about 1.79 for 16oz of goodness.  They come in a variety of flavors and all hail from the great state of Wisconsin!  They're a full fledged brewery and brew beer there as well, you can take a tour, find then at various festivals and when I'm back in the Midwest I certainly plan on visiting their location.

SPRECHER BREWING COMPANY

Now with that all aside I went to my local bottle/liquor company, Bevmo, and picked up a few of their gourmet sodas.  I've already had their, "I can't say any more good things about their delicious Cream Soda" which is now my default cream soda to drink, so I didn't pick up any (yet) plus the one Bevmo I did go to didn't have the Cream Soda or the Grape.  So before anything lets list what sodas they do offer, some of which are seasonal.

Their Regular Cast of Sodas:
  • Root Beer 
  • Cream Soda
  • Cherry Cola
  • Grape
  • Orange Dream
  • Ginger Ale
  • Cherry-Cran
  • Lo-Cal Root Beer
  • Puma Kola
Their Seasonal Cast of Sodas:
  • Rasberry
  • Strawberry
  • Red Apple
  • Blueberry
 Their Limited Release Sodas: (Currently only 1 Type as of  2015)
  • Honey Root Beer (only 3000 cases were produced!)
They Also have Private Label Sodas, which is an option to get your own label on one of their goumet sodas (and beer as well) but as far as I can tell its just a relabeling, but its a very cool idea to have your own "branded" soda/beer.

The main thing that sets Sprecher apart from others is their process of using local ingredients, extracts, fruit, and honey, and crafting it all in a hand-made, gas-fired brew kettle.  You can certainly taste the care in which they produce their product.  These sodas are soooo delicious.

So over the next couple of blog posts, and maybe a video or two, I'll be posting my thoughts on each of these sodas that I can get my hands on.  currently I have Root Beer, Orange Dream, Ginger Ale, Puma Kola, and one Seasonal Red Apple.  PS: They also sell BBQ Sauces, and Flavored Mustards!

2am Chili - How To Make Chili "Like A Boss"

Over on the reddit user tylercap posted his recipe for Chili, "Like A Boss" that he likes to make at 2am between sessions of Black Ops.  However unlike the traditional listing of ingredients in a 3x5 index card format or video of the process tylercap decided to post pics along with some stick figures showing the process.  Also if you're unfamiliar with the meme "Like a Boss" check out the bottom of the post for the youtube clip from Andy Samberg of SNL and thelonlyisland.

I had to give the boiling crab only one star this time out because frankly they missed the mark on a number of the areas I judge a establishment upon.  Find out more on why I don't recommend going to The Boiling Crab...
