Why National Stewart’s Root Beer Day?
Stewart’s Root Beer is a brand of American root beer. Stewart’s are nostalgic “old fashioned” fountain sodas that originated at Frank Stewart’s Stewart’s Restaurants, a chain of root beer stands founded in Mansfield, Ohio, in 1924.
The basic taste of root beer was historically derived from the root bark of the sassafras tree or the vine of Smilax ornata (sarsaparilla). Root beer is often devoid of caffeine, sweet, and carbonated. Since sassafras included safrole, which was declared carcinogenic by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1960, most commercial root beers now contain artificial sassafras flavor.
