Hires Root Beer was a popular elixir in the early 1900's. It was introduced in 1876 at the Philadelphia's Centennial Exposition. It was known to purify blood and give rosy cheeks. It was even sold in home kits so people could make Hires Root Beer at home. Soon it was bottled and sold in markets all over. You can still find it in some states today!
