    Monarch says that they will be launching flavor extensions soon on the moxie line.

    what is the dad's root beer brown bottle program, anyone?

    monarch also has "rush energy" which looks like a BIG K ENERGY DRINK.

    they have dr wells which they swear is in direct competition with dr pepper. hahaha. Poland was in direct competition with germany in '39.

    monarch also is establishind a distributorship in the ivory coast folks! which is hilarious, because the ivory coast is under heavy military duress.

    man that website/company is a freaking joke. they have off brands, which is cool. but they make them all look like hackAmerica's Choice soda pop.

    Let's not forget they bought All Sport from Pepsi, and have relaunched that. Too bad I've only seen it in a few stores in Pennsylvania.

    all sport is now non-carbonated, which is smart because no sports drink should be carbonated. however, they should've just left it alone. it's in the same bottle, same distribution but now pepsi's not pushing it at all. Monarch has to be some of the stupidest people ever to live. Dad's is only in chicago/midwest and ontario. moxies only in the NE. Bubble up is supposedly "widely available" in the midwest ( ihaven't seen it in years, about as plentiful as upper 10).

    Monarch is about as quality as most of RC's products, not including RC and Diet Rite (even though those two have the same store brand lookalike quality)

    You know, they have had their bizarre past but we make their cane-sugar Bubble Up and sell a ton of it. Coke used to bottle that here til the '70's and you'd be surprised how many people buy it in our longneck glass with cane sugar. I've also got a regular following of Moxie drinkers that appreciate our attention to quality; also if you have ever been to one of those 3rd world places where Monarch products are available, they're some of the best drinks you can find!!

    So now that Pepsi doesnt own AllSuck do they still bottle it? That was such a bunch of crap.

    I used to love Dad's root beer when General Bottlers was still putting it out in returnables in central Iowa a few years back. Then, Pepsi made them switch to Muck, err Mug and they dropped it. I bought a can of Dad's Root beer yesterday in NE California. I can't believe its the same drink I used to love. Nasty stuff, don't know if its the ingredients or the alumination or what. I guess I'll give them one more try, on the day I ever come across a glass bottle again. I had planned on going to Toronto in November, where Dad's used to be sold in NR glass, but now that trip is uncertain....

    Android, there's a place in Jackson, WY that sells Dad's Root Beer in longneck bottles. We have it with cane sugar and it's awesome. I still say Sparky's is the best. Today I brought some 22oz bomber bottles of Sparky's to a meeting and opened the bottles; told everyone to sniff it first before I pour it. You should have seen the eyes opening wide; as I was pouring it was foaming like Guinness with its velvet carbonation but I think the folks waiting for their glass were foaming at the mouth with anticipation at the same rate!

    Canned Dads???? That should be banned by one of those Father's Rights groups!!!

    Real Dad's Longnecks with Cane Sugar??? Pretty good but still I prefer Sparky's [and Abita].

    I was thirsty, and had drank a bunch of water already. Was surprised to see Dad's, actually. Dad's was the worst looking of the evils offered in the all-aluminum can cooler. How wrong I was.

    Oh, by the way, speaking of root beers, how long has it been since Barq's did NR glass bottles? I have, somewhere, an amber NR bottle. Sort of interesting history - probably 15 years ago or so, my parents drank a lot of beer in returnables. One day they found one that felt funny under the label. We soaked it and peeled off the label. It was the Barq's bottle, someone had fraudulently returned it for deposit and it somehow made it through the bottling plant, gotten filled and a label applied over the embossed labelling.

    Coca-Cola still sells Barq's in NR 8oz glass bottles. I know it to be bottled by plant HO (Indianapolis), US (Kokomo, IN) and MR (Miami).
