Sunday marks the celebration of a classic American treat that has weathered the test of time: National Root Beer Float Day.
In Bangkok, the beloved tradition has been kept alive by Buddy’s Bar & Grill. As the only place where you can still get an authentic American-style root beer float after A&W’s closure, Buddy’s has announced a free giveaway to commemorate the day.
Free Root Beer Floats for All This Sunday at Buddy’s
On Aug. 6 from 12-3 p.m., root beer enthusiasts are invited to Buddy’s Bar & Grill to enjoy a complimentary root beer float.
This free treat comes with no strings attached: No purchase is necessary. Whether you’re a long-time fan or a newbie to this fizzy delight, everyone is welcome to partake in the festivities. However, keep in mind that the root beer floats are limited to one a person and are available for dine-in guests only.
The History of the Root Beer Float
Also known as “Black Cows,” root beer floats trace their origin back to the late 19th century. The first root beer float was believed to have been created by Frank J. Wisner of Cripple Creek, Colorado.
Legend has it that one moonlit night in August 1893, Wisner was inspired by the snow-covered Cow Mountain and decided to create a dessert that resembled the snow-capped peak. He took vanilla ice cream, which represented the snow, and combined it with root beer, signifying the mountain.
This fizzy, creamy concoction was an instant hit, and the recipe quickly spread across America, eventually making its way across the globe.
Root beer itself, a soda traditionally made with sassafras root or bark, has a rich history dating back to indigenous tribes in North America, making this treat a perfect blend of tradition and innovation.
