My family and I lived in Southern California during the mid to late 80's. Many times, we would have root beer floats as a special desert. We now live in New Zealand, where we can't get the same great root beer we used to in America. Recently I have made a contact through my work with a man who gets alot of skateboards and skate accessories imported from America. When there is room left in the container, he fills it up with items like Dr Pepper and Big Red gum, among other things. He knows how I like certain American foods, and said to me that if I wanted anything, to make a list of items and give it to him. Well, the point of my story is this... we are trying to remember the kind of Root Beer that we got in America. What was the most popular Root Beer in So Calif. during the late 80's? The only thing I can remember about it was that the can was either mostly brown or possibly tan. Many thanks if anyone can help.
