Dr. Swett’s Root Beer


Despite having an unfortunate moniker, Dr. Swett's product sold from circa 1845 to 1959.

Read the whole story here.

The trademark is now officially dead and unclaimed, if any entrepreneurial WUvie wants to start the business back up.

At first glance, I missed the tiny little bumps in the font which make a 't' and thought it was "Dr. Swell's" (paired with the pic, it looked like a breast-enhancement drink).

It looks like Patty from her 1980's nursing ID card/picture she gave me. If I could only get her to dye her hair red like my mrs.

Hire's was the Root Beer of McDonald's in the 1960's. When you walked up to order you saw. the Hire's Root Beer Barrel behind the counter.Now yoy cannot get it even though you can find it on the Snapple website. At least you can still get Bubble Up if you are lucky and willing to pay.
