Root Beer @ GrotonFest

Posted on Jul 30 2021 - 3:14pm

Over the past few weeks, Sam and Mrs. Hawes have been hard at work exploring a few root beer options for GrotonFest including an alternative location or even buying premade at wholesale but unfortunately the upfront costs are just too expensive to justify the efforts vs a potential benefit.  As you may know, Incredibrew moved locations last year and changed its business model to the public and we are no longer able to make root beer there.  They were very generous to provide the Troop use of their facilities and ingredients for free (the owner was a Scout) which made it very beneficial versus alternative options.  After running a cost vs benefit analysis, the Troop would likely make the same (or more) for a single car wash vs the effort to make and sell root beer.  There was also some discussion of “making root beer at home” but this would be an issue with sterilization and selling a food product to the public not made in properly licensed facility.
