Yes, exactly. Dry ice is nothing more than frozen carbon dioxide. When it sublimates ("melts") it turns in to CO2 gas. This is what will carbonate the rootbeer. You need to cover it to keep the carbon dioxide in.

After it is done you should be able to bottle it without any problems. The reason that you can then put an air tight seal on it afterwards is because all of the dry ice is gone at that point. The pressurization comes from the dry ice expanding when it sublimates in to a gas.

OK, so dumb question, if you bottle it after sitting there for an hour, will it still be fizzy?

I've never bottled the root beer, but it makes sense that it will stay carbonated. The carbon dioxide would have no where to go... so i think it would stay fizzy. Let me know if you try it.
