Man Lives For Root Beer

SNEADS FERRY, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One man in North Carolina only roots for root beer.

Jerome Gundrum, also known as Dr. Root Beer, has what he calls “a deep passion” for the sweet, fizzy drink.

He’s made his life revolve around root beer with his restaurant and museum, Dr. Root Beer’s Hall of Foam, located in Sneads Ferry, North Carolina.

Gundrum began collecting root beer-related memorabilia in 1974, and has amassed the largest collection in the entire United States, and perhaps even the world.

He’s been infatuated with root beer since he was a kid – even making his own fizzy concoction most of his life – but not everyone is a fan of his hobby.

Gundrum says his wife gets annoyed when he asks what the “house root beer” is at restaurants or when he looks for anything root beer-themed in movies and points them out to her.
