About Boots Beverages
Boots Beverages was created by Mark Kristen’s father, Boots Kristen, when Kristen Distributing was little more than a bottling company. They bottled things like Dr. Pepper, Nesbitt, 7Up, and Frosty Root Beer. Boots Beverages featured seasonal flavors, similar to craft beers today.
People didn’t have much in those days. Getting a Dreamsicle or going to the picture show was a highlight of your day, and you talked about it for weeks. In honor of his father and the sacrifices the entire family made to keep the family business afloat, Mark reintroduced the brand, which features flavors that were popular during the 1940’s and 1950’s. A small way to remember the things that add the greatest flavor to our lives are often simple.
