While historians often credit Charles Hires with formualting root beer, he simply made it popular. It was actually first created in the American colonies from extracts of sassafrass and birch bark. The root beer we know today, nolonger contains any sassafrass since it was determined to be a health risk, but is a blend of wintergreen, vanilla, licorice and other flavors.
