When POPS in Arcadia, Okla., opened this summer, it not only offered hundreds of types of soft drinks, but commissioned one of its own. It’s called Round Barn Root Beer, a nod to the Round Barn a few hundred yards east on Route 66.
To many people’s surprise, Round Barn Root Beer is the No. 2 seller at POPS, reports the Daily Oklahoman.
To date, more than 7,500 bottles of Round Barn Root Beer have been sold just at POPS. A Florida restaurateur has even contacted Doepke about selling the soda in the Sunshine State.
“It’s been fantastic,” Doepke said. “It’s No. 2 on our sales list, right behind Route 66 Root Beer.” […]
“We wanted to give a nod to our neighbors down the road,” Doepke said. “With this being Arcadia and being on Route 66, it’s just another way to do a tribute.” […]
POPS now is preparing to add keg-fed fountains for Round Barn Root Beer.
Round Barn Route Beer was created by Huebert Brewing Co. in nearby Oklahoma City.
What’s the No. 1 seller at POPS? It’s Route 66 Root Beer.
