FRESH 12oz glass bottles Apothecary Root Beer with CANE SUGAR!! The year was 1937, the country was in the midst of the Great Depression and the entire City of Cincinnati was flooded as the Spring waters jumped the banks of the Ohio river. It was in this bleak setting that a young Deno Spaccarelli, perhaps acting on the challenge of President Roosevelt that there was nothing to fear but fear itself decided to open his first apothecary on Erie Avenue in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Cincinnati. It was here that he would compound custom prescriptions in the pharmacy and custom sodas at the fountain. Eight decades later, the family decided to keep the tradition alive by bottling the apothecary brand sodas for all the world to enjoy. They only use natural botanical extracts, juices, cane sugar and triple filtered carbonated water to provide you with an all-natural sparkling craft soda that makes no excuses for its sweet deliciousness. Chill a bottle and drink it cold with or without a glass and ice. We know you will agree, life is better with a few simple indulgences. Drink it in! You deserve it!
