Genealogy Blogging Beat – Tuesday 19 August 2014

Aug 19, 1893. Frank J. Wisner, owner of Cripple Creek Brewing, served the first root beer float in Cripple Creek, CO. Inspired by the moonlit view of snowcapped Cow Mountain, he added a scoop of ice cream to his Myers Avenue Red root beer and began serving it as the “Black Cow Mountain.” Kids loved it and shortened the name to “Black Cow.” Cripple Creek Brewing still sells beverages based on the original formulas.
