Question: Does 1919 contain corn syrup? My child is allergic to corn syrup.

1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer contains NO corn syrup.

Approximately 98% of sodas are made with corn syrup, which is much easier to use and less expensive than granulated sugar. Corn syrup was not developed until the 1970's and true to our name and the era 1919 represents, we continue to use granulated sugar. Sugar is what gives 1919 the depth and consistency that is unique in the industry. It also makes 1919 taste so good!

Question: Are you going to bottle 1919 Classic American Draft Root beer?

No. No bottles or cans. Our unique recipe is a draft root beer. When you see a 1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer tap knob, you will know the owner of the establishment cares about quality. More than likely that carries over into his food and facility as a whole. He wants to please his customers and make a totally good dining experience. Dedicating a draft line to 1919 speaks well for an establishment.
