    Mirj's Note:

    For some extremely peculiar reason, there is no root beer available where I live, but there is McCormick's root beer concentrate. I scoured the world to find a recipe and here it is. It's not exactly A&W, but as close as you can get to the real thing, if you can't get the real thing.

      It's not quite root beer but it's a good subsitute for the real thing when you can't get the real thing. I used Shank's birch beer concentrate which is similar to root beer.
