Last Sunday Wilton, Connecticut’s, Cannon Grange, had their annual fair. I love this little fair because it truly is something from out of the past. The fair is held inside the grange where people compete against one another for things like “best homegrown tomatoes” and “best homemade pickles.” Outside are various local venders as well as a children’s’ watermelon eating contest. On a whim I decided to enter my Root Beer Brownies and won first prize. Next year I may enter my rhubarb jam or my double decker carrot cake. These are some of the simple things in life that make me happy.
I love Root Beer and am always trying brands that I've never tried before. Yesterday, when I was at the Newport, Rhode Island Farmers' Market, I ran into Empire Root Beer. I had this root beer with a delicious piece of wood oven pizza. I think this root beer, which is made in Bristol, RI, is even better than Hank's.
Looks like one can get it at The Root Beer Store
