So apparently in Branson, Japan they have Vanilla Bees.... Branson, Japan may actually be a cool place!!! This root beer is a sublime mixture of honey and vanilla and some how integrated gracefully into a root beer base. I am not a huge fan of honey sweetened brew but this a unique twist that had me reconsidering my opinion. The brew is lightly carbonated with consistent head, the color is moderate and delivers a subtle bite finish. In many ways I wished I could get some Japanese Vanilla Bees to make some breakfast syrup for my waffles but I am not as thrilled about the use of their unique sweetness in this root beer. However, it does reach a quality equal to that of the standard. I am a little skewed about the website issue and false advertising regarding Branson, but the brew should not beheld accountable for the crimes of its label..... I am no fan of "guilt by association". 3 Frosty Mugs

A non-alcoholic treat in homage to Romney's Mormon faith
• 6.5 oz. root beer (recommends Old Dominion root beer)
• fresh whipped cream
• homemade caramel drizzle (recipe below)
• coarse kosher salt
Pour the root beer over ice in a highball glass. Top with a dollop of freshly whipped heavy cream. Drizzle the homemade caramel on top. Sprinkle coarse salt over the caramel drizzle.
• 2 cups sugar
• ½ cup water
• ¾ cup heavy cream
• 2 tbsp. butter
In a saucepan, add sugar and water. Cook on medium-high heat until amber-brown color. Remove from heat. Stir with a wooden spoon, pouring in ½-cup of warm heavy cream and pats of butter. Stir until the sugar dissolves and add ¼-cup of the warm heavy cream until smooth. Let it stand in a heat-proof jar and cool for one hour before use.
We were also happy to see that our friends at Dominion were identified as the root beer of choice for the Romney Float!!!!
