Old Dominion Brewing and Fordham Brewing Company spotted in the UK during Olympic Games

As the Olympics were winding down we couldn’t help but get excited when Corey Cogdell tweeted a picture of her root beer float made with Old Dominion’s Root Beer. “Root beer floats in London w/ @KimRhode Question of the day: Which is better more ice cream or root beer in a float? pic.twitter.com/wJMvofTW

Corey Cogdell is a professional trapshooter from Alaska. She was the first American woman to ever win an Olympic Medal in her sport in 2008. More recently, she competed in the 2012 Olympics, placing 11th in the qualifying round.

While still in London, Cogdell enjoyed a root beer float with fellow teammate Kimberly Rhode, who placed 9th in the qualifying round.

Old Dominion derived their root beer from original authentic American recipes found at the Library of Congress & has been perfected through many test batches. It is made with pure honey, pure cane sugar, yucca root, and contains no high fructose corn syrup.

Old Dominion’s sister company, Fordham, has also been making headway in the UK market. Fordham began sponsoring Zara Dampney and Shauna Mullin, who comprise the British women’s beach volleyball team, in January 2012 by helping to finance their training and supporting their journey to qualify.

Graham Richardson, general manager of Heathwick (which imports a range of year-round craft ales and lagers from Fordham along with seasonal brews and soft drinks from Old Dominion) said, “We are delighted for Zara and Shauna. They’ve worked so hard to qualify as Team GB and deserve all their success. There’s going to be a real buzz around Beach Volleyball in London and right across the UK this summer, with the Olympics giving this fresh and exciting sport a high profile. That’s the same ethos we’re building around the Fordham range, offering something new and interesting to beer drinkers and making craft beer more accessible to mainstream consumers.”
