It’s National Root Beer Float Day!


Today, August 6th, is National Root Beer Float Day!

Celebrate with A&W Root Beer tonight by having a Family Root Beer Float Night. Two simple ingredients create a delicious and fun treat for the whole family. I love root beer floats and have fond memories of sharing a root beer float with my dad. He has always been a big fan of root beer. So this past weekend I decided to share a root beer float with my boys.

Full disclosure, my boys have never tried root beer before and weren’t totally sold on the idea of putting ice cream into a drink but they tried it. They enjoyed the root beer flavor on the ice cream but weren’t sure what to think of the carbonated drink. (They still think carbonated drinks are spicy.) I however, loved the sweet familiar flavor of the A&W Root Beer poured over vanilla ice cream. It was a fun special treat that brought back a lot of great childhood memories for me.

A&W Root Beer has a long history of creating family memories. The unique, creamy taste of A&W Root Beer is a simple treat that creates fun, care-free experiences for families and can help make any moment special. For fun root beer float recipes and inspiration check out,
