Suburban Milwaukee's Sprecher specializes in German and American beers, but it's also beloved for its fire-brewed root beer, plus grape, red apple, cherry cola, Cherry-Cran, and an Orange Dream that might just be the best in the country, with respect to Stewart's. It's been a trailblazer on the artisanal soda circuit for three decades, a brewery that's more renowned for its non-alcoholic beverages than its boozy ones… but if you want to combine the two, there's also a barrel-aged boozy root beer. Careful. This one truly has bite.
Despite a truly bizarre, super-effed-up 1991 smear campaign to keep them it from expanding into New York City, Lehigh Valley's favorite pop has somehow managed to stay both afloat and proudly regional since 1918. The beloved canned operation puts out approx. 1 billion different flavors at this point, including blue raspberry, birch beer (yup, that old guy), something strangely delicious called "Champagne Kola," fruit punch, grapefruit, pineapple, and every grandpa's go-to, sarsaparilla, as well as a few mixers and a bunch of diets. Stay strong, A-Treat, the soda world needs you.
