    We had a free standing A&W restaurant in McDonough for a few years. I loved the frozen mugs and root beer on tap...

    I used to hit up an A&W on my way to Deep Creek Lake every year for a float and curly fries.

    I have some vanilla at home, so a stop for root beer is in order.

    There are not too many things I am not a fan of.

    1) Coconut

    2) Sun-dried tomatoes

    3) Root Beer

    4) Scotch

    Wow!  What a memory.......................the first A & W stand I ever saw.

    I was in Missoula, MT the summer of '55, working for my dad (at the age of 15).  It was a week of hot weather and that icy cold root beer went down real well all week long!

    A&W Root Beer was first made in my hometown of Lodi Ca. & the A&W drive in there was the hot hang out for the kids & their hot rods.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Just spent an hour in the coke cola expo here in Atlanta tonight at a Toyota party. They had coke from all over the world for you to try ( and lots of overstocked bars for the coke). And I thought why no coke float. Then got back to the room and read this.

    My first job was an A&W in Kent, Ohio. Didn't sound cool then, but my job was " fountain boy". Still got the mugs more than 30 years later.

  • The Ize Box in Alamo Heights TX made the best root beer ever. The only thing better than their hamburger and a root beer was a hamburger and a root beer float.
