Dang! Butterscotch Root Beer combines sassafras flavor with butterscotch, resulting in a beverage that drinks like a root beer but lands on a lingering flavor of brown sugar and butter.
It’s expensive to have bottled beverages shipped to you, so don’t bother: You can find this treat in San Francisco. Chowhound user hyperbowler spotted it at the Monterey Deli in Sunnyside; he says it might also be in stock on occasion at The Fizzary, a specialty soda store in the Mission District, but call ahead to check.
