GLENDALE — Thursday is National Root Beer Float Day so what better way to celebrate than to get a free root beer float from Sprecher Brewery?

That's right, Sprecher Brewery is recognizing the national holiday by giving away free floats from 12 p.m. until 8 p.m.

Sprecher has prepared a drive-thru for customers and will deliver the floats right to your vehicle. Their staff will be wearing masks, and customers are expected to enjoy the floats in their vehicles or at home.

The event is expected to be so large that Guinness World Records is even aware of the event. The brewery is hoping to set the record for the world's largest root beer float drive-thru.

According to Sprecher, "Sprecher is prepared to make as many as 50,000 root beer floats —which equates to 7,800 gallons of root beer and 4,000 tubs of ice cream."

While the floats are free, Sprecher is accepting donations to Feeding America. Donations can be made by texting FLOAT to 41444.

If you wish to be a part of the event, head to Sprecher Brewery, 701 W. Glendale Ave,. between 12 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Thursday to get your free root beer float.
