IBC Root Beer was founded in 1919 by the Griesedieck family as the Independent Breweries Company in St. Louis, Missouri. Root beer found a market as a legal beverage during the era of Prohibition. The Independent Breweries Company closed, but the trademark was purchased by the Kranzberg family, which operated the Northwestern Bottling Company. In the late 1930s, it was sold to the National Bottling Company, owned by the Shucart family. Popularity and distribution declined after World War II.

In July 2016, IBC reformulated its beverages, using cane sugar in place of high-fructose corn syrup. The bottles are now distributed in four-bottle packs (instead of the original six), and no longer have the IBC logo formed into the bottle itself, but rather printed on a plain brown bottle.

A fun twist on a classic root beer float, using the flavors of S'mores and both vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Plus the mix of chocolate-y goodness and melted marshmallows from the S'mores!

  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips melted
  • 1 cup chocolate ice cream
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 2 bottles root beer
  • pinch of smoked sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons graham crackers
  • 2 marshmallows charred or torched
  1. To melt the chocolate chips, place them in a bowl and microwave in 30 second increments until melty. I like to take a spoon and drizzle this around the rim.
  2. Fill each glass with both chocolate and vanilla ice creams. Add a pinch of smoked sea salt into the glass. Pour the root beer over top just before serving. Sprinkle on the graham crackers and add a charred marshmallow on to finish. Devour!
  3. As a note, you can char the marshmallows on a gas range, under the broiler (watch them the entire time!) or even just get them melty in the microwave if you don't have a bonfire of sorts.
