Red and blue make purple, right? When you take the Texas tradition of Dublin Bottling Works and mix in TCU, you get purple soda. Frog Fizz, to be exact.

The storied bottling company was established in Dublin, Texas in 1891, producing iconic glass-bottled sodas. For TCU’s Sesquicentennial celebration, the fellow Texans agreed to produce a special edition of their grape soda: Frog Fizz. The purple craft soda features TCU’s 150th gradient lettering on a purple label, along with the Sesquicentennial logo.

The history of Dublin Bottling Works is almost as old as TCU’s. From its small roots near Waco, Texas, Dublin gained popularity in the 20th century, bottling the Texas-favorite Dr Pepper. After a split in 2012, the company returned to its unique flavors crafted with pure cane sugar. But none quite as unique as Frog Fizz.
