One hot day in June of 1919 in Lodi, CA an entrepreneur named Roy Allen mixed up a batch of creamy root beer and sold the first frosty mug of this delightful beverage for one nickel. Now, almost 100 years later, A&W Root Beer is the world's top-selling root beer and is still mixed fresh daily and sold at hundreds of A&W restaurants. Allen purchased the formula for his root beer from a pharmacist in Arizona. To this day, the unique blend of herbs, spices, barks and berries remains a proprietary secret.
