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.

Opening of the First Stewart’s Root Beer Stand

“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!”

Stewart’s Produced in Bottles for the First Time

“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. 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.”


The Cable Car Beverage Corporation was purchased by Triarc in November of 1997.


In 2000, Cadbury Schweppes PLC acquired the Stewart’s  brands along with Snapple and Mistic Brands. 

**** In 2006 at the World Cup of Root Beer, Stewart’s  Root  Beer was named the top       Root Beer!

* Pittsburgh is the root beer guzzling capital of the world!

On this day, many stores, across the United States, will be hosting event demos of  Stewart’s Root Beer to their customers.

I love rootbeer. I like IBC the best. There's a local brand that's really good too, but I don't remember its name offhand. They sell it at the Twin's games.
