Green River Soda was introduced to Midwest drinkers just as Congress was passing the 18th Amendment in 1919 establishing Prohibition. Breweries tried to make non-alcoholic drinks called Near Beer or ice cream When Prohibition officially went into affect on January 16, 1920. Schoenhofen Edelweiss Brewing Company of Chicago decided to create Green River. Poured into root beer bottles Green River soda was sold to local retailers. Al Jolson even recorded a song about Green River due to its success. Prohibition finally ended in December 1933 and Green River sales were behind only Coke in the Midwest. Once the local breweries had started back up Green River saws sales decline. In 1950 the brewery responsibly for making Green River finally closed down.

Green River is one of those beverages that always comes to mind when you think of nostalgic sodas. Green River has the sweet taste of a lollipop and with its green color it is especially popular around St. Patrick's Day. "First for Thirst Since 1919" reads Green River's famous tagline.

Brings back great memories!

Used to buy this drink (fountain style) with crushed ice at a local mall back in the '70s and '80s. Wish there were more lime-based sodas like this.

Great hard-to-find soda

So glad I can find this old time soda on here as it is impossible to find elsewhere. My dad said it’s just like he remembers drinking in his younger years. We are both very happy!

Green River Soda

Brings back my childhood memories.

Great Stuff

I remember Green River from my younger days at a small drug store soda fountain. One in a while we'd have them put some chocolate syrup in it. We called it a Muddy River....haha. II picked up a bottle from a Farmers Market here while back and had to have more. Excellent service from Beverages Direct. Will be ordering more.

Great taste

This is similar to a Sprite or Sierra Mist but with a better taste. Not too sweet, syrupy or carbonated like the others. And who doesn’t like a green soda, it just looks cool.
