Welcome to Just For Tots by MAD, were are focus is on baby, but with think mom and dad deserve a treat too. Here we would like to present Boylan’s sodas a step back into the past to experience Pharmacy style soda.
Here we are offering Boylan’s Root Beer in single 12floz bottles. If you want to experience a rich sassafras flavor derived from cinnamon, sweet birch, vanilla, and wintergreen oil, then you’re in the right place. Hands down the best root beer we have ever had. Plus this is one of the few cane sugar sodas left made with real spices and natural flavoring.
Boylan Bottling’s story starts in 1891, when a pharmacist named William Boylan created an elixir in his Paterson, New Jersey, apothecary. He named that serum, a derivative of birch trees, Boylan’s Birch, and began selling individual cups from a barrel in the back of a wagon.
1900 – 1970s
William Boylan began bottling his birch beer after partnering with John W. Sturr, a local politician, in 1900. The partnership soon fizzled, but Boylan continued bottling his product until Prohibition in the 1920s, when Boylan was primarily sold in unused beer barrels.
In the latter part of the 20th century, Boylan found its greatest success in the distinctive long-neck embossed glass bottles for which the brand has become so well known. The general shape of the bottle and its embossed patterns have remained relatively unchanged from early iterations.
Although Birch Beer will always be a big part of the brand’s heritage, Boylan today is best known for its full line of hand-crafted sodas, ranging from our core four Ginger Ale, Root Beer, Black Cherry and Creme sodas, to other popular flavors, including Cane Cola, Orange and Grape.
