Earp’s Original Sarsaparilla

IMG_3063

 

I really enjoyed this brew . . . but mostly because of the name and label.  I simply love the nostalgia and of course the connection to Wyatt Earp (although I really didn’t know much about him until reading the Wikipedia article – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wyatt_Earp).

I must say that Wyatt Earp seemed like a simply fascinating individual.  This one line in the Wikipedia article sums up his life in a rather fortrite but interesting manner.  It says,

Earp lived a restless life. He was at different times in his life a constable, city policeman, county sheriff, teamster, buffalo hunter, bouncer, saloon-keeper, gambler, brothel owner, pimp, miner, and boxing referee.

But as interesting as Wyatt Earp really was, this sarsaparilla was not quite as interesting.  This would be the perfect brew for a party . . . it is an interesting conversation starter . . . but it isn’t in the top group of brews.  The taste is not offensive by any means, it is just more of an average sarsaparilla – bland actually.
