In addition to our “World Famous” Route 66 Route Beer we also bottle and distribute Route 66 Orange, Lime, “old fashioned” Cream Soda, and Black Cherry from our headquarters in Chicago, IL. These gourmet soft drinks are bottled under the highest of standards using our unique special formulas, dating back to 1996 with the formulation of our Route 66 Root Beer.
Our products are currently available throughout the Route 66 States and other states in many locations including Route 66 Icons, Museums, Welcome Centers, Restaurants, Drive Ins, Gift Shops, Gas Stations, Motels, Hotels, and Tourist Attractions.
In addition to the millions of residents along Route 66, we are excited with the ever-increasing International popularity of America’s Highway. Estimates indicate in excess of 500,000 tourists are visiting portions of Route 66 yearly and those numbers are expected to increase dramatically in the future. We are proud that travelers from around the world have enjoyed our Root Beer and sodas.
The original highway, established November 11, 1926 lead travelers from Chicago through Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, ending in Santa Monica, some 2,448 miles. US Route 66 was officially decommissioned from the United States Highway System on June 27, 1985; however, portions have been designated a National Scenic Byway of the name ‘Historic Route 66’ and has begun to return to maps in this form.
There are active Route 66 Associations in all eight states and a number of foreign countries. Preservation and restoration projects are underway in many locations and new community activities and tourist attractions add more and more excitement and interest in Route 66. Links to these associations and events along Route 66 are available in our Events & Links section.
Enjoy your Route 66 explorations, and along the way, enjoy our wonderful soft drinks, “The Ones for The Road.”
