    Abita root beer. It can be hard to find. They sell it at Mathernes Supermarket.

    Barq's in a bottle (not a can or fountain drink)

    Frostop

    Zatarain's root beer mix (if you like a non-carbonated root beer)

    Frostop for best local root beer in a frosted mug.

    Barqs by far has the best widely-available bottled root beer. But some small bottlers are making very good root beer these days.

    I pretty much like them all except Fanta, which tastes like some sort of radioactive industrial waste byproduct. I haven't had a Frostop root beer in probably 35 years, but am so glad to know they are still around.

    My favorites:
    1.) Barq's
    2.) Mug

    And, yes, there are few things on earth as good as a root beer float.
