Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In your kitchen mixer, beat the butter on high for about half a minute, then gradually add the sugar and beat until combined. Scrape down the sides, and then beat another 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, incorporating completely. Add the vanilla extract. Alternate adding the dry ingredients mixture and the root beer, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Beat just until combined. Pour into your prepared 9-inch round cake pan and bake for 35 minutes. Cool for about 15 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
