Small Town Brewery Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float Cake

I grew up loving root beer. What kid didn’t? While I rarely drink it these days, every once in a while, it’s a little piece of nostalgia that I greatly enjoy. And, well, a little piece of nostalgia is exactly what Small Town Brewery excels at creating.  Small Town Brewery Not Your Father’s Root Beer tastes just like root beer, all while boasting a 5.9% ABV (trust me, you’ll want a case of this!). I thought about my favorite treat as a child; a root beer float. How do I make magic happen with the two? Small Town Brewery Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float Cake, of course! The cake, like Small Town Brewery Not Your Father’s Root Beer, gives the touch of nostalgia, without all the sugary sweetness (there’s some, don’t get me wrong!). The cake is light and tasty, not too sweet, and the perfect complement to this flavorsome ale.

If you LOVE root beer, you’ll not only love Small Town Brewery Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float Cake, you’ll love the beer! It’s moist and VERY delicious. I know you’d think I’m a big dessert eater, but I don’t eat a ton of it. I love to taste, but I’m not the “sit down and eat a bag of cookies” type. This cake? I wanted to eat every bit of it. EVERY bite. Every bit.
