Root beer from the Louisburg Cider Mill in (duh) Louisburg, KS. Sweet, but not too sweet, no HFCS, and a good root beer bite. Try the other flavors, too, if you get the chance.

The sodas listed in the first post can be found in Texas. Dublin Dr.Pepper refers to the Dublin,Tx original bottling plant for Dr.Pepper.They do have a website,and I think they use cane sugar in it.
Jarritos and Penafiel are sodas from Mexico which are very popular around San Antonio,due to the high Hispanic population.Haven't tried any of them yet. We also here have Big Red,which has a bottling plant on the east side in Kirby,near the railroad yards.
Also,If you live around here, you can buy Shasta at the Family Dollar and General Dollar Stores.They used to sell it in the grocery stores here years ago.You can find it at Dollar Tree as well.
H.E.B. Grocery Stores, the mega south Texas chain based in San Antonio, has it's own brand of sodas called Hill Country Fare,named so because the chain started in Kerrville, in the Texas Hill Country back in the early 1900s. Their sodas aren't bad, but i don't know who they have a contract with to produce the soda. We do have Barq's here, and i have seen NeHi's Grape and Orange Crush at Walmart as well as Frosty Rootbeer. I think I even saw Dad's Rootbeer too at Walmart.Maybe Frosty changed their formula, but it didn't tast as good to me as when I was a kid.
I recall my dad mentioning a soda called Grandpa Graf's Rootbeer, that was around years ago in Milwaukee.But that was back in the 1930s and 40s.

I'm going on memory here and only had it once and it was good, but can't find any mention of it googling. If anyone from the Lincoln, NE area can help confirm this it would be great.
Husker Pop I think I had a strawberry or fruitty flaor one.

Any how I do KNOW that there used to be a Husker Beverage Company in Seward, NE. In fact the old Valentino's(sp) pizza place was housed in the old bottling plant. But when I was teacher ading in Seward a parent came in talk about his buisness and he had bought the Husker Soda recipes and was bottling it under Husker Pop I think. He brought in samples and that is where I had the Strawberry flavor pop.

One more fact I do know is that Husker Beverage Company was in buisness from 1940 to somewhere in the 1990s
if anyone can help I'd appreciate your help.

We met with Anne Peeples in Milwaukee this past Monday for a bit of shopping and a great Lunch. (See my Trip Report) Anne got us someDANG (Brand name) Butterscotch Root Beer. We have had it before and love the stuff. It is wonderful as the beverage used in unique Root Beer Floats...better than when it is drunk by itself!

She also found some Sprechers Cherry Cola Soda (a 4 pk of 16 oz glass bottles) We love their Root Beer and this Cherry Cola has a strong Cherry flavor without being the extra sweet that Cherry Coke or Pepsi seems to be. Good Stuff, and worth a try if you are in the Milwaukee area!

At the Hot Dog Johnny's roadside in Butzville NJ they have birch beer in frosted mugs. Delicious. Can't say with any certainty if it's their own or if they buy from someone locally.

I grew up in the Pittsburgh area and fondly remember Tom Tucker Mint Ginger Ale...

Also the Cott brand of sodas - - their slogan was, "It's Cott to be good."

There was a local pop distributer - - I believe it was Imperial Bottling company in the North Side, and they had some great flavors - - Mint GingerAle, Grape, Orange, Grapefruit, lemon and fruit punch... I am sure that there were others - - They had painted bottles.... Loved them...

I remember Cott! Seems like they had a really good birch beer. In Youngstown, we also had Golden Age and Holly beverages. And I really liked Get Up. I don't know who made it but it was a 7-Up knock-off.

My daughter just called me. She a grocery store in Baraboo WI that is selling Sprechers Flavors for $2.50 a four pack. That half the price of the Root Beer when we can get it, here in Louisville. I have requested several 4 packs of the Cherry Cola and a sample 4 pack of the Red Ravin' (Cherry-Cranberry Soda) to come down for the Thanksgiving visit.
It's nice to have kids with the same tastes as us !!

Cott has not gone under. They are one of the largest producers of private label sodas. They had 4 pack glass bottle Cott product in Wal-mart last year, maybe in some parts of the country they still have them.

I will be in Wisconsin from Thanksgiving until right before Xmas - - I am definitely going to look for Sprechers sodas.... I don't think I will have time to tour the plant, but I will save that for my next trip... I am making a whole list of Milwaukee places to go - - it is a goodly drive from my DD's house though....But she has to pick me up at the AMTRAK station there, so we might be able to work it out....

Cott branded product in 4 pack glass bottles should still be around. Some Walmarts had them last year.
