What’s Brewing Bergseth Bros.

Online Weekly Newsletter Vol.9

We’ve seen the tremendous success of Not Your Father’s Root Beer in recent months within Bergseth Bros. territory. It’s quite astonishing how fast this brand has grown locally and on the national level. We’re very excited to announce the addition of Not Your Father’s Root Beer on draught and in cans!! Keith Bergseth, General Manager of Bergseth Bros. stated, “In less than a year NYFRB bottles has become one of the top selling SKUs. To support the success of this brand, new line extensions have been offered. Not Your Father’s Root Beer Draught and Cans are an excellent addition to this family.”


Not Your Father’s Root Beer is the result of ambitious creativity, a rich family brewing heritage, and tireless commitment to premium American Craftsmanship. After Tim Kovac and his son experimented with brewing as a hobby for several years, Tim formally committed to the craft in 2010 by opening Small Town Brewery in Wauconda, IL. His brewing focus developed as he unearthed his unique family brewing history which dates back to his great grandfather – an English ship captain – in the 1600′s. Utilizing his ancestors brewing practices – which included fruit-based recipes consisting of specific herbs, flowers, and various fruits versus hops – has inspired Tim’s passion for deriving innovative offerings, such as Not Your Father’s Root Beer, from modern brewing’s heritage and underpinnings.
