When we were kids, on Friday night we would get Pizzas from Taranto's Bar & Grille on Newton Street, and 4 bottles of "tonic" from across the street Nolan's "packy": Coke, Squirt, Cliquot Club Orange Soda, and Tower Root Beer! Tower was a regional product made in Somerville, MA. Like many regional brands it went of of business years ago. Oh, how I missed Tower Root Beer! You can't believe how excited I was to find out that Tower Root Beer is back!
I grew up on Tower Root Beer so, to me, this is The Root Beer against which all other root beers are measured. For years, every time I would go into a store and see some brand of root beer I had never tried before I would buy it hoping to recapture that little taste of my childhood. I've tasted a lot of good root beers, but none of them tasted like Tower.
For some reason I did a Google search on Tower Root Beer the other day and, to my surprise, I found there website announcing that Tower Root Beer was back in production. http://www.towerrootbeer.com/
My quest had ended. I found my Holy Grail of root beer! I went out and picked up a couple of six packs. I couldn't wait to get home, so I cracked open a cold one as soon as I got into my car. I was immediately transported back 35 years. Ahhhh, so good!
