Frostie Root Beer is a brand of root beer sold in the United States of America. Frostie was originally produced in 1939 by The Frostie Beverage Company of Catonsville, Maryland, owned by George Rackensperger.[1] At the end of 1979, the Frostie brand was sold to the Monarch Beverage Company of Atlanta, Georgia.[2][3] After years of being under-promoted by Monarch in favor of Dad's Root Beer, the Frostie brand was sold in 2000 to Leading Edge Brands of Temple, Texas. In 2009, Leading Edge Brands sold the Frostie line of beverages to Intrastate Distributors Inc. of Detroit, Michigan.[4]
