Root Beer of the Month -- March

 So Duh! Rockin’ Root Beer
So Duh! Rockin’ Root Beer is made by Hermitage Brewing out of San Jose, CA which has been in business since 2009. The 10,000 square-foot brewery has seen 30-40% growth each year since its inception, and was birthed out of the demise of the well-established Tied House Brewing Co. in San Jose's downtown San Pedro Square district. Although the Tied House “brewery” closed, the Tied House “restaurant” is still in existence, and is currently operating as a sister company of Hermitage Brewery.




Known as a “contract brewery,” Hermitage Brewing Company produces soda for other clients as well who would like to make their own soda but do not have the resources or finances to have their own equipment. So Duh! Root Beer is the company’s house brand and is very popular--even though the soda is not sold nor mentioned on the company’s website.

Deemed “Soda with an Attitude,” we can only assume the company has attitude as well with reports that a disco ball lights up and an audio of ABBA’s greatest hits automatically plays every time the bottling line is turned on!

Committed Fan
Matt Z. from Tacoma loves root beer so much, he had a root beer float tattooed on his arm!!! Could there be a more dedicated fan? Well, although we do not recommend our customers tattoo their allegiance to this great beverage on their body, we DO love the passion we see among our loyalists!

Recipe of the Month

Root Beer Float Rice Krispie Treats
Yield: 16 treats

Serving Size: 1 treat

For the root beer layer...
3 c rice krispies cereal
1 tbsp butter (or margarine)
2½ c mini marshmallows (or about 30 jumbo)
1 tbsp root beer extract

For the vanilla layer...
1½ c rice krispies cereal
½ tbsp butter or margarine
1¼ c mini marshmallows (or about 16 jumbo)
1 tsp vanilla extract


Generously coat a 9”-square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray (canola or butter-flavored is best). Set aside.
To prepare the root beer layer, add the cereal to a large bowl. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows once the butter has melted, and stir constantly with a spatula. When the marshmallows are almost completely melted, remove the pot from the heat and pour in the root beer extract. Return the pot to the heat, and continue stirring constantly until the extract is fully incorporated and the marshmallows melt.
Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal, and stir with the spatula until fully incorporated. Pour the gooey cereal mixture into the prepared pan. Generously coat your hands with the nonstick cooking spray, and press the cereal mixture evenly across the bottom of the pan.
To prepare the vanilla layer, add the cereal to a large bowl. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows once the butter has melted, and stir constantly with a spatula. When the marshmallows are almost completely melted, remove the pot from the heat and pour in the vanilla extract. Return the pot to the heat, and continue stirring constantly until the extract is fully incorporated and the marshmallows melt.
Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal, and stir with the spatula until fully incorporated. Pour the gooey cereal mixture into the prepared pan on top of the root beer layer. Generously coat your hands with the nonstick cooking spray, and press the cereal mixture evenly across the root beer layer. Cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
