The key to the best Root Beer Float is the Root Beer; it has to be packed with flavor, or the float will be boring!  So I will only use these Root Beers~ A&W, Hires, IBC and Stewart’s Root Beer!  Did you know these sodas are part of the Dr Pepper Snapple Group?  I didn’t, no wonder they All taste so great!

About IBC/A&W & National Root Beer Float Day

IBC: Since 1919, IBC has provided great tasting sodas with the unique heritage of good old-fashioned fun.  Through the years, the quality of IBC Root Beer has been upheld by retaining the original, secret formula packaged in a distinctive brown bottle.

A&W: On June 20, 1919, while the citizens of Lodi, Calif., held a parade honoring returning World War I veterans, a young entrepreneur named Roy Allen set up a roadside drink stand to quench the thirst of the spectators. His new thick and creamy drink concoction was an instant success at a nickel per glass mug. So favorable was customer response to his root beer beverage that Allen immediately took on his first partner, Frank Wright and the duo went on to name the beverage A&W. To this day, A&W Root Beer is caffeine-free and made with a proprietary blend of herbs, bark, spices and berries to achieve its signature taste, and is synonymous with celebrations and good times.

Guess we all got a history lesson too in Root Beers!
