National Root Beer Float Day, the annual celebration of the frothy, all-American summertime treat, is quickly approaching, as is the deadline to enter A&W Restaurants’ Float-a-Friend sweepstakes.

To mark National Root Beer Float Day, August 6, A&W is giving away a year’s worth of floats to 10 randomly selected winners and their friends. Root Beer lovers are encouraged to “Float-A-Friend” by nominating someone in their life who deserves free floats.

Enter by 10 p.m. on August 6, 2020 at or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #FloatAFriend. Tell A&W who you are nominating and why. Share a photo of you or your friend, if you like.

The 10 grand prizes will be awarded in the form of gift checks for 104 regular-sized floats, enough that each winner and their friend may enjoy a free float every week for a year.
