Special Tapping :: Not Your Father's Root Beer

  • Porter's Pub Bowes Creek Blvd Elgin, IL, 60124 United States (map)

Porter's Pub was able to secure a special keg of the 10.7% Not Your Father's Root Beer from Small Town Brewery. Chances are you've heard of this beer, perhaps a LOT about this beer. Selling out of stores almost as quickly as it comes in, this beer doesn't hang around for a long while.

Join us on Thursday, January 15th at 6PM as we help tap this unique brew. While you're there, take part in the PORTER'S QUARTERS and enjoy 25¢ WINGS until 8 PM.


Tasting Notes: Silky, smooth and satisfying finish. Appeals to craft beer drinkers as well as those who don't typically drink beer but crave something unique.

Kovac passed down his family’s beer making tradition by working tirelessly with his son to craft the first version of “Not Your Father’s Root Beer.” At 10.7% ABV, the silky, smooth and satisfying finish is unmatched in flavor. It appeals to craft beer aficionados as well as those who don’t typically drink beer but crave something unique.

The award-winning “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” achieved a 95 rating from Beer Advocate and is very popular in the Chicagoland area.
