August 6 is National Root Beer Float Day! (Hey, that’s today!) A day when we celebrate a foam-topped sweet soda paired with a big scoop of creamy ice cream. In summer, it’s just about the best thing there is to keep cool.
Root beer is the star of this satisfying treat. Without it, well… you’d just have a mug of ice cream… which is pretty amazing, too. Nevermind! Either way, root beer is the best and to honor this sweet holiday, here’s a look at how root beer is celebrated in pop culture.
