Man Spends $900 To Make The Ultimate Root Beer Float From Scratch

What does it take to get America’s most classic float on the table?

Grit, determination and a whole lotta goat’s milk.

Andy George knows this all too well: He spent $900 and traveled over 1,100 miles to build a single root beer float from its very origins as part of his series, “How To Make Everything.”

The long process involved collecting goat milk for ice cream…

…foraging for roots and herbs…

…and growing yeast in a petri dish.

In the end, George admits his root beer float tastes pretty darn good.

Meanwhile, we’re grateful that his work takes us one step closer to understanding the origins of the food we eat every day.
