Why is Dr Pepper no longer bottled in Dublin?
Dublin Bottling Works and Dr Pepper Snapple Group reached an agreement in January 2012 that transferred the bottling and distribution rights for Dr Pepper products to Dr Pepper Snapple Group. Dublin Bottling Works no longer bottles Dr Pepper products, but you can still enjoy many other delicious Dublin Bottling Works sodas at the soda shop and bottling plant in Dublin.
What is the difference between Dublin’s W.P. Kloster Museum and the Waco Dr Pepper Museum?
The W.P. Kloster Museum focuses on its own unique history. Most of the huge collection of memorabilia in the Kloster Museum was collected by W.P. Kloster, who loved and collected all things classic soda, including a special affinity for Dr Pepper. The collection contains many rare pieces and is one of the largest in the world.
Just across the street, a tour of the Dublin Bottling Works facility takes you through our historic and still-operating bottling line, and through even more memorabilia housed in what was the original offices of Dublin Bottling Works. The tour ends in Old Doc’s Soda Shop, where you can step up to our soda fountain as well as purchase a wide range of other Dublin Bottling Works products.
The Waco Dr Pepper Museum pays homage to the creation of Dr Pepper at the Old Corner Drug Store, the growth of the soft drink industry, and the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company, which was located in what is now the museum.
