    My dad’s family owned Barq’s Root Beer in New Orleans, he was a chemist. He started his own company Push Root Beer and I remember the 1st can produce used to sit on our counter at home. When Katrina hit everything was gone, so I need to find it again and put it next to his picture. I’m sure he’d love that and I’d be a happy son.

    I'll keep an eye out, there are huge antiques markets close by in Pennsylvania. Let you know if I see any. What's it worth, is there any idea?

    How long in business? From when to when? Any pics of the back of the can? What was the distribution radius?
    If it was local I would guess most of the surviving cans were also effected by Katrina. This could be very scarce. More info please
