A&W Root Beer

A&W Root Beer

Out of more than sixty different varieties of root beer, none is more indelibly linked to the all-American experience than A&W, with its fresh, draft beverage served with a nose-tickling head of foam in a frosty mug. With its rural appeal and simplistic design, it hearkens back to a frothier time, if not a sweeter one. Continue reading...
