Barq's introduces new packaging design

ATLANTA — Barq's is paying homage to its Gulf Coast heritage by introducing a new design on all of its products' packaging.

The root beer brand said that while the cans will maintain their distinctive silver color, the new look features a diamond pattern reminiscent of the drink's original 1898 12-oz. glass bottle packaging. Additionally, the label helps celebrate the brand's 114-year history by keeping the simple slogan "It's Good. Since 1898."

"When a beverage as beloved as Barq's undergoes a significant packaging evolution, we have to remain true to the brand's heritage and tradition while ensuring the brand is relevant to today's consumers," said Christina Manganaro, senior marketing activation manager at Coca-Cola North America. "We think the new design presents a cleaner, simpler look that captures the brand's essence in a way that will ultimately resonate with both dedicated Barq's fans and those who are new to the brand."
