Get Free A&W Root Beer Floats on Aug. 6, #NationalRootBeerFloatDay


Celebration raises money for Disabled American Veterans (DAV)

Slide show: Fun Root Beer Float ideas

Everybody loves an all-American Root Beer Float on a hot summer day, and A&W
nationwide are making the treats even tastier by giving
them away on National Root Beer Float Day, Monday, August 6. During the
celebration, A&W's restaurants nationwide will raise money for Disabled
American Veterans (DAV).

From 2-8 p.m., participating locations will serve free, small Root Beer
Floats, no purchase necessary. Guests will be encouraged to make a
donation to DAV. There are more than 630 A&W Restaurants in the U.S.
This is A&W's sixth annual National Root Beer Float Day celebration and
the second year it has partnered with DAV. A&W and DAV hope to raise
$150,000 for the organization, which serves more than one million
veterans annually. Donations also can be made online at

Of course, Root Beer Floats are enjoyed all year long. Want to make sure
you are preparing yours the right way or need some ideas on how to make
the traditional treat a little more novel? A&W's Root Beer gurus have
compiled a slide show on creating a perfect all-American float, a hot
fudge float, Root Beer pops and, for the adults, a Bourbon Cream float.
