Ever wonder where the A&W Root Beer Float got its start? It was back in 1919 in Lodi, California at a small root beer stand. Entrepreneur Roy W. Allen set up shop, and on a hot June day, he mixed ice cream and root beer in a frosty mug to sell to attendees of a parade honoring returning World War I veterans. Naturally, it was a hit.

Not forgetting their roots, A&W uses National Root Beer Float Day to collect donations for the DAV organization (Disabled American Veterans).
