Barrels of Fun features multiple thematic areas addressing root beer and the role of the soft drink in the free enterprise system. The exhibition additionally showcases root beer’s rise as “The Temperance Drink” during prohibition, explores the byways of America with root beer drive-ins, examines its status as micro-brewed cult classic, and introduces root beer’s relatives, cream soda, birch beer, and ginger beer. 

Multiple hands-on activities are scattered throughout the gallery space. Visitors will be challenged to identify the ingredients in root beer’s classic brew and can compete to complete an advertising scavenger hunt throughout the exhibition. Younger visitors can operate a retro root beer drive-in in our unique root beer stand recreation. 

The free enterprise system is illustrated through root beer’s development through the years. All exhibition components work to demonstrate not only the story of the frothy drink, but address aspects of launching root beer into the market place from conception to expansion and diversification. It’s an opportunity you will not want to miss! Quench your thirst for root beer and learn root beer’s recipes for success. 

Journey to the root of it all at Barrels of Fun, on display from October 5th 2013 through May 2014.
