Dublin Dr Pepper -- Yes, The Actual Stuff from Dublin -- Returns to Maple & Motor's Tap

Categories: Food News

As Scott mentioned earlier, Jack Perkins, founding partner of the Maple & Motor burger mecca -- and once a proud provider of Dublin Dr Pepper on tap -- is joining forces with Dublin Bottling Company to serve up the other sodas by the still-standing indie soda company.

But that doesn't mean you'll never again see Dublin DP on Perkins' tap. Perkins told us yesterday that he's expecting a rather large shipment of Dublin Dr Pepper today, an arduous process involving a third party distributor and a premium price tag.

The supply will only last 12 to 15 weeks, but the moral of the story remains: Maple and Motor should have the unofficial beverage of Texas back on tap this week.

Perkins wasn't sure what he would do when this shipment runs out. Maybe a cream soda switch, maybe a resurrection of Dublin Up. But at least for the next few months, he can remove the sad little Post-It note on the spigot of regular Dr Pepper, warning customers of impending disappointment should they be seeking the Dr Pepper from those crazy Imperial Sugar wielding mofo's down in Dublin.

I wonder how many people would notice if not for the Post-it.  I think the fountain  machine itself has a big effect on the taste, depending on the amount of syrup per drink, the fizziness of the water etc.  Fountain drinks are always a crap shoot.  Sometimes really good, often too sweet and flat.  Sometimes a really bad chlorine taste.  What causes that?  Is there tap water in fountain drinks, or does it all come from a tank?

When Mountain Dew came out with Throwback Dew, made with real sugar, I was looking forward to trying it out. I was surprised how different it tasted. Turns out I like the HFCS stuff better.  Not sure what that says about me.

While other places add machines that serve 100s of combinations of soda Jack is busting his balls over a single selection. Makes me want to drive over there and throw money at him.

Dublin Dr. Pepper is the unofficial beverage of Texas. Fact.

Perkins does realize the Imperial Sugar "Dublin" version will still be made at Dr Pepper's Temple bottling plant, doesn't he? The drink is still available; only the name is extinct.

Hahahah!!  Throw money at him!!  That's funny.  I kind of feel the same way for these people.  They are people who care about quality and uniqueness.

I think I heard something similar. That Dr. Pepper will make a cane sugar version of Dr. Pepper, but just remove the reference to Dublin.

The Temple plant does not make fountain syrup. This came from Dublin.

However, I understand the Temple plant has no plans or license to produce a cane sugar version for soda fountain use.
