In June of 1919, A&W co-founder Roy W. Allen opened his first Root Beer stand in Lodi, California, during a homecoming celebration for World War I veterans.

Today, A&W lives on as America’s oldest franchised restaurant chain, and we’re celebrating our 105th birthday with an unbelievable deal more than a century in the making.

Free Root Beer Floats for everyone over 100. For life. Forever.

It’s our way of saying thanks to the fans who’ve been making memories with us since day one.

Just stop by any US A&W location to get your free Root Beer Float—a frosty mug filled with our world-famous Made Fresh Root Beer and creamy vanilla soft serve—from now until the end of time.*
