Blast from the Past

If you grew up in the Detroit area (years ago) you are most likely familiar with this sign and hopefully you had a chance to tour the Vernor’s plant and of course … remember having a “Boston Cooler”, Detroit style, at a local soda fountain.

Vernor’s Ginger Ale is a soft drink and the oldest surviving brand of such in the United States.  It was created in 1866 by James Vernor, a Detroit pharmacist.  In 1966, the Vernor family sold out to the first of several different companies.  The flagship Detroit bottling plant was shut down by United Brands in 1985.
