Root Beer Review #34 – Jones Root Beer

Jones Soda is relatively common for a premium soda. The labels are unique – featuring pictures taken by their customers. They also feature slogans on the bottom of their bottle caps and you can redeem them for schwag. For example, after sending in 350 bottle caps, you could redeem a Go Pro! At a rate of one root beer per week and assuming they were all Jones Soda, I could film myself drinking a soda in a measly 6.7 years!


It’s a solid root beer – sweetly sugary with a head like Mug root beer. It’s your 6th man in basketball. The utility man in baseball. It’s your friend. It provides comfort and can be a go-to soda.
