Duffy's Rowdy Root Beer
- Manufactured under authority of Duffy Company, Denver, CO by Lonetree
Brewing, Ltd., Denver, CO USA.
- The Pitch:
- HISTORY OF DUFFY'S In 1929 Frank Duffy developed Duffy's Delicious
Drinks. For 30 years of wonderful production, Duffy's became a household
name in soft drinks. His Duffy's Rowdy Root Beer turned out to be one
of his greatest hits.
Frank died in 1961 to the dismay of all. For the next couple of decades
the company changed hands limiting its product line.
In 1990 a new enterprising entrepreneur bought the company, formulas
and logos. To the delight of those who knew Duffy's products.
Duffy's Rowdy Root Beer with its true richness and spark has been
brought baaaaack!!! using the original recipe that Frank Duffy was
so proud of. The formula deals with only the best of quality, true
and natural ingredients.
- The Ingredients:
- Carbonated Water, Sugar, Vanilla, Caramel Color, Citric Acid, Natural
Flavors and Sodium Benzoate.

- Very dark, lightly carbonated, no head. Strong
taste, quite sharp but not unpleasantly so. My amateur tongue thinks
the sharpness is due to anise - perhaps that's one of the "natural
flavors". My first impression was of root beer candy, but after
several bottles I think it tastes better than that. Of course, that's
not saying much considering how little I like the taste of root beer
candy. The sugar is quite pronounced, but balanced by the tang. Is it
rowdy? I wouldn't go that far, but it is stronger than most other brews.
No aftertaste, just an "afterburn" on the back of my throat.
A bit sweet for my taste, but overall a good root beer. Loses points
for excessive anise-ization. Survey says... B-.
