A&W Restaurants has updated the promo page, since announcing its annual giveaway earlier this year. This year, there are no participating locations in Colorado. A&W Restaurants all started with a tiny root beer stand in 1919. Entrepreneur Roy W. Allen set up shop on the streets of Lodi, California, offering a new creamy and refreshing drink served in a frosty mug. It was a hot June day, so Allen thought his concoction would be the perfect accompaniment for the parade honoring the return of World War I veterans.
His root beer was a hit—a unique and tasty American beverage that has remained a symbol of celebration and camaraderie ever since.
And, to this day, the chain’s signature beverage is still made fresh on-site with real cane sugar and a proprietary blend of herbs, bark, spices and berries.
Did you know August 6 is National Root Beer Float Day? To celebrate, A&W Restaurants are giving customers a FREE small root beer from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, August 6 at participating locations, while supplies last. No purchase necessary. Limit one per customer.
As a part of the celebration, the restaurant chain will also be collecting donations for Disabled American Veterans.
All good deals always float to the top!
