JUN 17th | TODAY IS:
NATIONAL STEWART’S ROOT BEER DAY – I was fully intending to celebrate Eat Your Vegetables Day but unknowingly celebrated Stewart’s Root Beer Day at a friend’s backyard bbq / lobster party today.
We were gathering for an early Father’s Day feast and had eaten a silly amount of food. My husband grabbed a dark brown glass bottle of root beer after dinner. I looked at the label and noted the name Stewart’s and the rest is history!
My father was a huge fan of root beer but mostly in float form. He even had his own very tall float glass with a matching spoon. He would put several scoops of vanilla ice cream into the glass and then pour in the root beer. What a lovely memory of both root beer and my father (whose middle name was Stuart!).
