At our root beer stand, we have flavors that all ages will enjoy
Born right in our back yard in Ely by Dorothy Molter herself (a.k.a. the Root Beer Lady). “Using root beer syrup…. sugar and yeast, Dorothy took the clear, cold water from Knife Lake to home-brew her very own root beer.”
“While Dorothy’s Isle of Pines Root Beer is no longer brewed in her 8-gallon crock with lake water, we have stuck as close to her original recipe as we can.”

“Born on the Bayou”, Abita Root Beer is down- home brewed in Abita Springs, Louisiana. “Brewed with a hot mix process using spring water, herbs, vanilla and yucca (for foam)…Abita sweetens its root beer with pure Louisiana cane sugar. The resulting taste is reminiscent of soft drinks from the 40s & 50s….Abita is naturally caffeine-free.”
Created in 1895 at the local soda shop in Spring Grove Minnesota, it is one of the oldest root beer recipes around. This brew is light, sweet, and smooth with a hint of licorice at the end and a great foam head!
From the New Jersey Shores “A rich sassafras flavor derived from cinnamon, sweet birch, vanilla, and wintergreen oil. Sweetened with real cane sugar, creamy Boylan Root Beer is brimming with spicy sassafras flavor ”
Portland, Oregon’s historic Henry Weinhard Brewery also crafted soft drinks in the Pacific Northwest at the turn of the 20th century, which guaranteed the bottler a backup plan during Prohibition. Weinhard’s root beer balances vanilla, honey, wintergreen and sassafras for a rich and creamy treat that makes a terrific float… that is, if you can wait that long to drink it!
