  • Commercially purchased Root Beer contains no alcohol and so you will be unable to become intoxicated by it.

    If you were to make your own Root Beer you can allow it to conduct a yeast fermentation beyond a that of respiration (CO2) in order to produce alcohol. You then would have an alcoholic Root Beer.

  • Negative. You are drinking Artificially flavored vanilla/ sassafras soda.

    The very original use to have a small alcohol content, but the key ingredient included an oil called Safrole which caused cancer in rats and the FDA demanded any natural drink containing this oil had to be removed from shelves... so they redid the beer, but did not change it to root soda when they dropped the sassafras and added carbonation.

  • It depends on if it was made naturally or with forced carbonation. If it was made naturally it falls under the less then .5% ABV drinks, and it does contain ethanol. Yeast is used to carbonate root beer. It is one of the brewed sodas. So while you technically could get drunk from drinking it, you would have to drink about a gallon to equal one pint of beer (and a weak one at that).

  • Maybe.

    It would have to be traditionally brewed, there are a few small companies that still do root beer and ginger ale in this manner. When done the old-fashioned way there will be an ABV of 1% or less. If you drank enough and didn't get sick and bloated you MIGHT get drunk. If you are talking about A&W and the like...no.
