National Root Beer Float Day

Diet? Not on August 6. It’s National Root Beer Float Day, after all — a time to enjoy one of the best beverage/dessert combos on the planet.

On that day, some even compete for root beer float greatness. It all started in Colorado back in 1893.

Frank J. Wisner was inspired. Surrounded by Cow Mountain where his Cripple Creek Brewing Company was located, Wisner came up with a novel idea.

While mountain gazing, he didn’t see snow-covered peaks. Instead, Wisner envisioned scoops of ice cream floating in root beer.

Crazy, right? So, today, enjoy the tallest, fizziest root beer float you can find!
