The Weber's Root Beer chain was founded in Tulsa in 1933. The company expanded to 67 locations with most of them built in the Midwest. The only ones left are the one in Tulsa and three locations in New Jersey. The New Jersey locations are all independently operated now. They feature car hops and root beer in take-out gallon containers. For more, see this website.

former Weber's Root Beer
Brooklawn, NJ
The Brooklawn location opened in the early 1950s, making it the oldest of the New Jersey survivors. This stand featured a rooftop sputnik sign with flashing lights. This stand also had a motorized spinning disc sign like the one in Pennsauken described below. This location also featured a mini golf course which was built when the place opened. In 2004 when the photos in the top row were taken, there was a pile of orange and white corrugated steel metal behind the building. I assume that at least part of the canopy was replaced or removed at that time. It was pouring rain during my 2010 visit (bottom row of photos). When I was there in 2012, the stand was either closed for the season or permanently. In 2014, this location officially closed and was put up for auction. The sputnik sign was removed around 2018. The place was still vacant in 2023. The mini golf is still there but overgrown with weeds. The spinning disc sign is still there. [map]

Weber's Root Beer
Pennsauken, NJ


This location opened in 1951. Sometime between 2008 and 2010, the flashing bulb sign on the roof was replaced with a solid orange ball. That had fallen to the roof in 2017 and was still there in 2018. It is now gone. The other sign is a motorized, spinning sign like this one in Budd Lake, NJ. [map]

This location opened in 1959. It closed in 2015. The place reopened in 2020. The vintage sign was replaced with a "retro" neon sign. The canopy and building under it remain. However, the plastic letters around the side of the canopy are gone now. For more, see this website. [map]
