  5. RootJack: Gentleman Pirate

    Episode 8 of the Gentleman Pirate is now online at RootJack.com and on Facebook. This time we discuss the Kennedy Curse and how, if at all, it relates to Bartholomew Roberts.

  6. ahoy Mate. I was goofing around at home and made a little video. If you would like to see it let me know..

  7. RootJack Now Available in Portland, OR!

    Well, as it turns out, RootJack was not available at the festival. Apparently them powers that be decided that Guardian had to buy a second booth if they wanted to sell drinks with their normal items. They couldn't afford a second booth, so RootJack never made the fair. We just started selling cases direct on our website, but we don't do Canada yet. Maybe soon.
  8. I normally don't post every location that takes to sellin' RootJack. I really don't wish to bore and perturb the members of this hear board. However this little news tidbit is worth mentionin'. See VooDoo Elixirs be out of the dread pirate port of Elkhart, Indiana. Ye know we be tough since we have to slog to the Caribbean all the way from the corn belt. Shippin' something as heavy as RootJack can take any ship to task. Shippin' all the way from the midwest to Oregon takes a special kind of Pirate bravado. I'd like to see these mates rewarded for the tenacity, so I'm hopin' a few of you Oregon pirates can stop in to their shop and buy up all their RootJack. The name of the place be Guardian Games, and it looks to be a fine place. I also understand they'll be hittin' the local pirate festivals as well. Portland having a fine concentration of handsome pirates, they should do fine. So check out Guardian Games in Portland, and get yerself some Pirate Energy in the form of a delicious and icy cold RootJack.

    'Tis me pleasure to present to all ye scallywags, lubbers, lads & lasses, bilge rats, deck hands, wenches, buccanneers, sea dogs an' honorable pirate cap'n's our latest concoction known as RootJack! I know this here be an abrupt introduction, but the brew be complete an' I would waste no time presentin' a drink what fights off the scurge known as scurvy. That's right. RootJack has yer full daily dose of Vitamin C! Plus it's tasty to boot. RootJack be a Root Beer with a hint O'Orange flavor an' Vanilla, and enough of a kick to knock the barnacles off yer keel. We call it "The Pirate Energy Drink", an' any crew under the fair wind O'this brew would be hard to put down. We nary hit ev'ry port yet. We've got just the one ship and a small crew, but RootJack would be sailin' yer way soon as we catch wind. In the mean time, check out our interport home. We'll be addin' new markets there as we find 'em. Yarrr.

    Tiger Lee, your quote has been sent! Let me know if ye did not receive it. Bonus News: RootJack just won a bronze in the July issue of the trade rag, Beverage World magazine in the carbonated soft drink (CSD) category. Candidates were judged based on innovation of ingredients, packaging and positioning as well as overall uniqueness. Winning anything against the major players is quite a prize indeed.
  16. Ahoy mateys. August 5th through the 8th be the time of GenCon in Indianapolis. It be the largest Con in Indy to date, and lubbers from all ports converge fer gamin' and frivolity. The VooDoo Crew be there with RootJack in tow, an' we plan to make a fine time of it. On Saturday, August 7th, at Scotty's Brewhouse in downtown Indy, we be havin' a pirate gatherin'. Thar be pirate music in the air, pirate movies on the big screens and RootJack be served at the bar. Thar be no cover, just the normal costs of a meal and/or a drink; and it be a fine opportunity to dress in yer piratical best and mingle with fellow seadogs. So if ye be in Indy at that time, an ye don't mind navigatin' the crowds of lubbers, then we'd love ta see ya at Scotty's.

    good one Mate! I like the Vids will they available for podcasts? Well, I have them posted on Facebook and Youtube currently. That last one was fairly large (28meg), and I would imagine that be a pretty big download for most. The video services make it easier for folks to download, even if it means they can't take it with them. I guess I'll have to see where the currents take us.
