Root beer revelry was a wonderful place to have a root beer float. There are six flavors to choose from for the floats. The attendant was very cordial and allowing me the opportunity to taste some of the root beer flavors. I really enjoyed myself...More

We had so much fun doing the flight of root beer samples and the owner is awesome! My boys returned twice to get another six pack to take home.

Do the flight of root beer for $5.00. It will help pick out the ones you want to bring home. They have so many to choose from.

This was a fun place to choose a root beer flavor. We have never seen so many different flavors of root beer! There were so many choices and was hard to narrow to just one. We were not disappointed with our choices either!

We ALWAYS make a stop or 2 here when in Galena. Grab a cold drink to go and even choose a few bottles from their extensive selection of rootbeer and other types of soda. Rick is a fun host and knows his stuff!

Not really a restaurant but a little root beer store. Had the flight for $5. Pretty good. Not much else to see here.

We visited in the early spring, so there wasn't any food or floats. The shelves were stocked with scores of root beer choices.
