FRESH 12oz glass bottles of the American classic Dad’s Diet Root Beer!! A bit of History about the Brand: Dad’s was created in Chicago in 1937 by Ely Klapman and Barney Berns in the basement of Mr. Klapman’s Chicago-area home. The Dad’s brand was immediately famous throughout the midwest area and by the late 1940s, was one of the most-consumed brands of Root Beer throughout the United States. Jules Klapman, son of co-founder Ely, was successful in bringing the Dad’s brand to the international stage. The name Dad’s Old Fashioned Root Beer was coined in honor of Eli Klapman’s father, and any other fathers across the country, who used to make root beer at home for their families (a popular thing to do in the early 20th Century). Dad’s became the first product to use the six pack format invented by the Atlanta Paper Company in the 1940s. Dad’s also introduced the half-gallon bottle, becoming the first brand to market this size. Dad’s also marketed sizes based on each member of the family. “Junior size”, for example, was the smallest size, with “Mama” and “Papa” sizes representing the medium and largest sizes, respectively. (The image of the young boy featured on the “junior” sized bottle is Barney Berns son, Gene Berns).
