Stewart's Fountain Classics are a brand of premium soft drinks made in the United States. Stewart's are nostalgic "old fashioned" fountain sodas, having originated at the Stewart's Restaurants, a chain of root beer stands started in 1924 in Mansfield, Ohio. In 1990, the bottling rights to Stewart's were acquired by the Cable Car Beverage Corporation. Cream Soda and Ginger Beer flavors were introduced in 1992. Other flavors have been added since then. Cable Car Beverage Corporation, in November 1997, was purchased by Triarc.[1] Cadbury Schweppes PLC acquired the Stewart's brands in 2000 along with Snapple and Mistic Brands for $1.45 billion.[2]

Stewart's Root Beer was named the top root beer at the 2006 World Cup of Root Beer.

Stewart's drinks come in 12 fl. oz. (355 ml) bottles. The bottles of some flavors are tinted amber, while the others are clear.
