Boylan Bottling Company Review

I was sent Boylan Shirley Temple sodas for review.

First though let me tell you a little bit about the company and how it got the name.

In 1981 William Boylan developed an elixir in his Paterson, New Jersey apothecary. He named it Boylan's Birch being a derivative from birch trees.

Through out the years they were distributed in many forms and packages.

Marketed as a soda fountain beverage in the early days before it was bottled in the 1900's.

During the prohibition in the the 1920's it was actually contained in beer barrels!

The birch beer was sold primarily in kegs to taverns in New Jersey.

Their 12 ounce bottles that are creative by structure are well known.

Boylan still today can be found in soda fountains at restaurants. 

Not only do they have birch beer, they have a wide selection stemming from regular, club, seltzers, and diet!

Ginger Ale
Root Beer
Shirley Temple
Boylan's Creamy Red Birch Beer

I absolutely loved drinking soda as a kid.

I remembered when my family and I would go to the Malt Shoppe right up the road from where I live and we would get a soda and ice cream.
Just the look of the bottles from Boylan took me back to my childhood, reminding me of the great memories of the Fourth of July when we would be patiently awaiting for the fireworks to be set off while snacking on our ice creams and sipping our sodas.

So sad that it went out of business many years ago though.

We need businesses like these again!

Oh to be young again! 

Check them out online!

Like their face book page! 

I love the old fashion soda bottles and that you can save them!
