There’s a small, locally-owned and operated soda bottler up in Shawano that few people know about. Twig’s has been bottling in real glass since they started back in 1951. Up in this area you can find a wide variety of Twig’s flavors, but only one – the Golden Cola – is a brand folks all across the country recognize. Though it tends to be widely associated with the South, Sun Drop has a long history here in Wisconsin, where Twig’s has been bottling it since the beginning. This unique beverage that’s made with orange juice and packs more caffeine than Mountain Dew is so cool, Twig’s decided to start holding a festival in its honor. Sun Drop Dayz takes place on May 31 and June 1st in 2019 and you’re going to want to check it out.
Address: 898 S Main Street, Shawano, WI, 54166.
Sun Drop Dayz takes place at Memorial Park in Shawano, just blocks away from Twig’s Beverage. In 2019 it runs from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 31 and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 1.
