Tower Beverages Overview

First Tower Delivery Truck 1914Gone for 30 years, the family of Domenick Cusolito, has resurrected the old family recipe of this Boston Root Beer. Prospect Hill Beverages, LLC has brought back Tower Root Beer to the New England area using the original family recipe bottled and distributed by Prospect Hill Bottling and Soda Water Co. Tower Root Beer was first established in Somerville, MA in 1914 by Domenick Cusolito who immigrated to the United States from Salina, Italy and settled in the Boston area. After World War II, his sons, Jack, Richard and Paul, assumed the responsibility for the management and operation of the family business. Now, Mr. Cusolito's grandson Larry and grand daughters Carolyn and Judy head up a third-generation of the family that has reintroduced the Tower Root Beer brand in the New England region and re-established the Cusolito family tradition in the soft drink market.

    Tower Root Beer

    Posted by Jack and Joneen Richards on Sep 6th 2021

    We purchase Tower Root Beer at a Lynnwood, Washington soda specialty shop. The owner carries dozens of favorite root beers from all over the country. We have sampled quite a few but none surpass Tower's delicious recipe!

    Your #1 Fan!"

    Posted by Robert-Waltham, MA on Oct 21st 2015

    When we were kids, on Friday nights we would get Pizzas from Taranto's Bar & Grille on Newton Street (Waltham), and 4 bottles of "tonic" from across the street Nolan's “packy” (both are now closed): Coke, Squirt, Cliquot Club Orange Soda, and Tower Root Beer! Oh, how I have missed Tower Root Beer! You can't believe how excited I was to find out that Tower Root Beer is back! I grew up on Tower Root Beer so, to me, this is The Root Beer against which all other root beers are measured. For years, every time I would go into a store and see some brand of root beer I had never tried before I would buy it hoping to recapture that little taste of my childhood. I've tasted a lot of good root beers, but none of them tasted like Tower. For some reason I did a Google search on Tower Root Beer the other day and, to my surprise, I found your website announcing that Tower Root Beer was back in production. My quest had ended. I found my Holy Grail of root beer! I went out and picked up a couple of six packs. I couldn't wait to get home, so I cracked open a cold one as soon as I got into my car. I was immediately transported back 35 years. Ahhhh, so good!

    Tower Root Beer was my favorite beverage growing up in the 60's. I'm looking forward to trying it again.

    God To Have It Back

    Posted by Art-Hyde Park, MA on Oct 21st 2015

    I recently ordered a root beer at the Halfway Cafe and I was shocked when they brought out a frosty mug and a bottle of Tower Root Beer which I had not seen in years. I figured there was no way that this could be the same soda that I grew up with as a kid. But as soon as I smelled that familiar aroma and tasted it, I knew it must be back.

    The comfort of "back home!

    Posted by Jamie-"Deep In The Heart Of Texas" on Oct 21st 2015

    I've thoroughly enjoyed the taste of Tower Root Beer. Living "Deep in the Heart of Texas," I rarely get a chance to enjoy things from "back home" in Boston. My parents have brought Tower out on their last two trips. Ah, the taste of good root beer AND the comfort of "back home." Thank you.

    The entire family loves Tower Root Beer so much, I have to stock a case in the basement to ensure that we don't go through a whole case in a day.

    My grandfather used to put chocolate ice cream in a glass of Tower Root Beer for me every time I came in his back door!!! Too bad some of these best New England food brands cannot be found in Austin, TX!!!
