Barq's Gulf Coast Roots

10571184-large.jpgBarq's Root Beer is tweaking its packaging design with a throwback to its late 1800's Gulf Coast heritage. All the packaging is staying silver, but "features a diamond pattern reminiscent of the drink's original 1898 12-ounce glass bottle packaging." The Times-Pic notes that the root beer "traces its heritage back to New Orleans and to Biloxi, Mississippi," though it was sold to Coca-Cola in 1995. [TP]
