The first Thomas Kemper Root Beer was brewed by Andy Thomas and Will Kemper (local Northwest beermeisters) back in 1990. They wanted to serve a cool alternative to beer at their Oktoberfest celebration. It quickly became so popular they had to invent Novemberfest. Now you'll find Thomas Kemper all over the West (and everywhere else if you look hard enough) - thanks to a lot of great stores and restaurants that share the best of taste.
