A&W serving up free root beer

New natural flavour root beer to be celebrated across Canada with special promotion

Free root beers for everyone.

A&W Canada is brewing root beer with natural ingredients, and to celebrate the milestone, the company is having a Free Root Beer Day Saturday, July 22, at all A&W restaurants in Canada, from opening til close on that day.

A&W Canada is now serving up frosty mugs of root beer made with natural cane sugar and all-natural flavours such as sarsaparilla root, licorice, birch bark, and anise. The company has been on a relentless journey to source natural ingredients and the launch of A&W Root Beer crafted with natural ingredients marks a significant milestone.

“Our customers told us that they want food and drink made with natural ingredients and we’re taking big steps to make it happen,”said A&W Canada’s Tom Newitt. “We’re proud to introduce A&W Root Beer crafted with natural cane sugar and all-natural flavours which is another first for fast food in Canada.”

Canadians can find the beverage in restaurants as of Monday (July 10). It will also be available in the craft soda aisles of grocery stores in new four-pack glass bottles.
