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.

Made my St. Patrick's day perfect!

I'm from Chicago and moved down to Texas. I'm an avid soda fan and someone who LOVES St. Patty's day! It's not complete without Green River soda. I can't find it out in Texas since it's a Chicago company. It was too expensive for my family to send me some, but my mom found this site and sent it to me. I bought my soda and with in a couple days I had Green River delivered safely to my door. I was able to have my corned beef and cabbage with delight as I topped every bite off with a sip of my soda. I would highly recommend buying from here. I'm very interested in the monthly soda subscription too! 😎

Perfect for St. Patrick's Day

Bottles came shipped perfectly! I moved to the East coast a few years back and they don't have GREEN RIVER. After a couple years I was REALLY craving a GREEN RIVER ice cream float.Thank goodness I could order it here and now I'll finally have a HAPPY St. Patrick's Day in the East!


Green River Soda - 12 oz (12 Glass Bottles)

Takes me back to growing up

So glad to find this still being made. After our soda shoppe closed 35 yrs ago I didn't think I'd ever have another Green River.

Childhood memories

I was eight years old when I first had Green River and loved it. Periodically,I would look locally for the product, none to be found. Green River went from a childhood delight to a bucket list entry. Some sixty later I found the product and it did not disappoint.
