Heady -thrilling; exhilarating: the heady days of one's youth
Create a small batch root beer company that is focused on local and clean labeling. Our team will handcraft fun root beer styles that will blow your socks off! Our daily focus is to share quality products with our community and our independent retailers. Why buy a root beer from a soda company when you can buy a root beer from a ROOT BEER COMPANY! We are a non-alcoholic product.
What is a clean label?
Clean Label- is about natural ingredients with no chemicals. A clean label offers simple ingredient statements. It lacks chemical influence and artificial preservatives.
We are committed to do what big soda is not willing to do, create local crafted small batch root beer with clean labels. No stabilizers for us! Our method is to use cold temperatures to provide shelf stable products. We will not be making products that can sit on a shelf for six months, like big soda, we are a drink fresh product. There is a big hole in the soda/root beer market, which is the lack of craft local options. I think we can learn from the craft beer industry. At this point, we can safely say that craft beer is more than just a movement, its a lifestyle choice, so I ask? Is Craft Soda next?
What is small batch?
For us, small-scale production means products that are made in limited quantities, by means of traditional methods. We will boil 150 gallon batches in a brew kettle, cool down, transfer to brite tank, carbonate and package all by hand.
Start-up cost (32 K)
All our Root beer is handcrafted with simple ingredients. Most soda companies hide their sugar story, we don't. We are proud of how we make our flavorful Southern Mint simple syrup to naturally sweeten our Root Beer. We also boil our root beer to create depth, color and complex flavors.
Heady root beer - our full bodied root beer has deep balanced flavors of spice and herbs. Big mouthfeel with a kiss of honey and Fresh mint.
Coffee root beer - hints of roasted coffee on the nose, loads of chocolate and earthy notes from local roasted beans with a soft round mint finish
Cherry root beer - we combined the best of both worlds, cherry soda and root beer! The fresh cherries crash your palate while the spice of the root beer gives the structure needed for a true beverage explosion!
What makes us special?
- We are local
- Clean labels
- Our mint simple syrup
- Small batch quality
- Control & innovation
- We support small independent retailers
