For many years now, June 17 has celebrated National Stewart’s Root Beer Day.  Celebrating this holiday each year is easy, just gather together some friends and some Stewart’s Root Beer and enjoy!!

Originating in 1924, in Mansfield Ohio, Stewart’s Fountain Classics were a brand of “old fashioned” fountain sodas.  They are a brand of premium soft drinks that are made in the United States.

In 1924 Stewart’s opened their first Root Beer Stand!!  In 1924, Frank Stewart set out to develop the world’s best-tasting root beer which he intended to sell in order to supplement his income as a schoolteacher. With the secret recipes in hand, he soon opened his first Stewart’s Drive-In where he served ice-cold Stewart’s Root Beer in tall, frosty mugs. The creamy taste of Stewart’s Root Beer was an instant success and has been enjoyed by consumers for over 75 years!”

Did you know that for the first 66 years, Stewart’s Root Beer was only available at Stewart’s root beer stands and later, at Stewart’s Drive-Ins. Then in 1990, Cable Car Beverage Corporation acquired the bottling rights for Stewart’s and began selling Stewart’s Root Beer in 12 oz. amber glass bottles. This allowed us the ability to purchase Stewart’s at many locations and no longer only at Drive-Ins!!

In 2006 at the World Cup of Root Beer, Stewart’s Root Beer was named the top Root Beer!!! Today, Stewart’s remains a popular choice for many, and is available at many restaurants as a beverage option and the selections and flavors are awesome!

Celebrate today with a Stewart’s Root Beer Float!!!!
