Part of my “Tastes Of Home” series. In the area where I live – Southeastern PA – birch beer is common. And, many have heard of Sarsaparilla. Both have a taste similar to root beer. At some local farmers markets, you can find stands selling home made varieties. Both of these soda flavors are not common outside the area. My “Tastes Of Home” series celebrates food brands native to Berks County, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and Greater Philadelphia – the area where I live.
