A&W Root beer soda
American Soda, A&W
Made with roots? Yes. Beer? No. This unique soda gets its flavor from the sassafras plant, as well as a few others. A&W has been one of the standard bearers for root beer since its introduction in 1919. Serve it cold or use it for a root beer float: pour A&W Root Beer and Hershey's Chocolate Syrup over a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream.
