Everybody loves an all-American Root Beer Float on a hot summer day, and A&W Restaurants nationwide are making the treats even tastier by giving them away on National Root Beer Float Day, Monday, August 6. During the celebration, A&W’s restaurants nationwide will raise money for Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
From 2-8 p.m., participating locations will serve free, small Root Beer Floats, no purchase necessary. Guests will be encouraged to make a donation to DAV. There are more than 630 A&W Restaurants in the U.S. This is A&W’s sixth annual National Root Beer Float Day celebration and the second year it has partnered with DAV. A&W and DAV hope to raise $150,000 for the organization, which serves more than one million veterans annually. Donations also can be made online at www.rootbeerfloatday.com.
Of course, Root Beer Floats are enjoyed all year long. Want to make sure you are preparing yours the right way or need some ideas on how to make the traditional treat a little more novel? A&W’s Root Beer gurus have compiled a slide show on creating a perfect all-American float, a hot fudge float, Root Beer pops and, for the adults, a Bourbon Cream float.
