Hello Bill:
I see you love pickles and I love root beer. Too often when I want a root beer at home or away I am always at a loss as to the correct sign and I am sure there is one out there. I don’t know if it is proper to combine the sign for “ROOT” and “BEER” or if there is a separate sign to signify the soda root beer. My friends and family eventually know what I am asking for by using the combined signs of “Root” and “Beer”
Thank you for your help.

To do the sign for rootbeer you just touch an "R" then a "B" to the side of your chin.
