Pros

Has a unique flavor to it

4 agree

Has bite

3 agree

Widely available

2 agree

Great for making ice cream floats

2 agree

It has a unique taste. Some may say it is too strong but unless you want a wussy root beer it is the best. Mugs, Hires and A&W all are weak in taste compared to Barq's

1 agrees

In some areas such as Utah, regular Barq's is sold without caffeine.

Barq's Famous Olde Tyme Root Beer is a brand of root beer most notable for having the popular tagline "Barq's has bite".  It was the first root beer in north america to not contain caffeine  and is sold by it's parent company Coca-Cola . It's said to have a more "rooty" taste to it when compared to other root beer on the market. It's also not as carbonated as other root beer on the market and pours very smoothly out of the can.  Regular Barq's has 22.5 mg of caffeine per 12 ounce serving (similar to green tea), while Diet Barq's has no caffeine.

I love Barq's Rootbeer. As a matter of fact, it is much better than Mug, A& W and Hires. Will you please tell me why it not distributed in the 20 pack as the regular Barq's? Thank you.
