Dublin Bottling Works, once the Dublin Dr Pepper Bottling Company, was known for decades as the only Dr Pepper Bottling Company to still use pure cane sugar instead of cane syrup. They dropped Dr Pepper in 2012, after a lawsuit stating that Dublin was selling their much sought after soda outside of their territory. But their story certainly did not stop there, and both Dr Pepper lovers as well as craft soda lovers can visit to tour the bottling plant, Old Doc’s Soda Shop and the museum.
Dublin had been bottling 1891, and they have amassed a huge amount of Dr Pepper collectives over the years, all of which are displayed in the museum! The town of Dublin loved Dr Pepper, and it was affectionately know as Dr Pepper, Texas before the split. Now, the town has embraced the Dublin Bottling Works!
Dublin Bottling Works in located in Downtown Dublin, and the cute shops nearby are fun to visit. It is also home to the Ben Hogan Museum.
But Dublin Bottling Works is what draws most tourist to the town!
Inside you can purchase sodas, shirts and other souvenirs. Old Doc’s Soda Shop is a full service Soda Shop, serving Blue Bell Ice Cream for amazing floats and other treats!
You can also purchase bottles or even cases of their craft sodas. My son loves their XXX Root Beer, and honestly I’ve never had one I didn’t like.
They also sell only the syrup for their sodas, which is amazing on top of Blue Bell Ice Cream!
There are two tours you can take, the guided tour which takes your through the bottling factory, and a self-guided tour. We’ve taken both, numerous times, and really, take the guided tour! It last about an hour.
