Root beer ‘barrel’ served DL in 1930s & 1940s
Years ago the landscape of Detroit Lakes looked much different than it does today. In the 1940s, it included a large barrel and plenty of root beer.
Steve Hoffbeck, a history professor at Minnesota State University Moorhead will be speaking at the Detroit Lakes Library on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
He has researched root beer barrels in Minnesota and has published a book on the subject.
The event is free and there will be root beer floats served after Hoffbeck’s presentation.
