History of National Root Beer Float Day

The legend goes- Colorado was the place where it all started. During the year 1893, a gold mine and tavern owner named Frank. J. Wisner in Cripple Creek was staring at the nearby Cow Mountain, when an idea started to brew in his mind. While he was lost in mountain gazing, the snowy peak seemed like a spoonful of vanilla ice-cream. He thought then and there why not serve root beer covered with vanilla ice-cream on top! So, that’s how started serving root beer float which was known as ‘Black Cow’. There is some alternative version behind its origin story, but does it even matte when one simply wants to get lost in the creamy and sweet delight of the beer!

In 1919, Ray Allen started a root beer stand in California’s Lodi. Later the humble beginning turned into the giant A & W giant restaurant chain with chain, which still serves root beer these days! In 2019, A &W threw a free giveaway of root beer on National Root Beer Float Day to their customer and people were delighted to say the least!
