How Was "A & W Root Beer" Named?
A&W Root Beer, now one of the most popular brands of root beer in the United States, was first brewed in June 1919, in Lodi, California by Roy Allen at a parade for returning World War I veterans. Allen initially sold the root beer for a nickel at a roadside stand. Allen, along with partner Frank Wright began A&W Restaurants, giving the root beer its name (the last initials of their names) as well as eventually selling other food. A&W Root Beer is available prepared fresh in the restaurants or bottled in stores.
