Q: What's the story behind Capt'n Eli's Soda?
A: Capt'n Eli's Soda is handcrafted on the coast of Maine. Founded by Fred Forsley in 1997, this soda affectionately honors his father, Eli Forsley, who, in his day, was widely known for making delicious homemade root beer. He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and, after the war, was a pioneer in providing the mentally ill and disabled veterans a home where they could be a part of the community. We're proud to have a soda named after him!
Today, Capt'n Eli's Soda has grown to include seven flavors of caffeine free soda, all made with natural cane and brown sugars.
Q: What's the connection between The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli and Capt'n Eli's Soda?
A: Since the beginning, Fred saw the potential of Capt'n Eli to be more than a soda. His father was well known as a great storyteller and for his spirit of fun. That sense of fun was expressed in his root beer and Fred felt this same sense of fun could be instilled in an adventure story. Combining the two E's -- entertainment and education -- he saw how Capt'n Eli could be a positive addition to the world of children's entertainment.
