Ironbeer is a soft drink that originated in Cuba in 1904 and created by Manuel Rabanal. It has been described as tasting like "a fruitier Dr Pepper" or like Ironport soda. Ironbeer cans give the following story about its origins: "On a summers afternoon, in 1917 a mule-drawn, wooden wagon arrived at a popular cafeteria in Havana, Cuba. It delivered the first four cases of a new soft drink that would soon be called "The National Beverage". Now more than 80 years later, IRONBEER is still enjoyed for its refreshing flavor with just a hint of island spices. A lot can change over the years - but not the original flavor of IRONBEER! "
