Here at The Warehouse in Somerville, NJ we take our sweet treats seriously, and who doesnt love a nice cold Root Beer Float on a hot August Day. August 6th is National Root Beer Float Day, which is believed to have first been made by Frank J. Wisner at a mining camp in Cripple Creek, Colorado. The sweet treat has also been known as a Black Cow, and has alternately been made with Birch Beer.
