Stewart’s Root Beer Review (Soda Tasting #190)
Ohio schoolteacher Frank Stewart opened his Stewart’s Root Beer stand in 1924. Stewart’s was only available at root beer stands and drive-in theaters until 1990, when Cable Car Beverage Corporation acquired the bottling rights and began producing 12 ounce bottles of the soda.
Triarc (which would later become The Wendy’s Company, as in the fast food restaurant) bought Cable Car Beverage in 1997 and later sold the Stewart’s brand, along with Snapple and Mistic, to Cadbury Schweppes. Eventually, Cadbury Schweppes spun off their North American beverage unit as Dr Pepper Snapple Group.
Meanwhile, Stewart’s Root Beer Restaurants continues to operate separately to this day. They have many locations in New Jersey, but also have restaurants in Kentucky, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.
