For 120 years, Dublin Dr Pepper was manufactured in the small west Texas town of Dublin. The soda’s original pure cane sugar formula spawned a cult-like following in the Lone Star State and across the globe. All that stopped when Dr Pepper Snapple Group filed a trademark lawsuit against the tiny soda bottling plant, causing an unceremonious end to a relationship that had endured for more than a century.
Each year, more than 70,000 people from around the world visit the Dublin bottling factory. Now, local residents are left wondering what will happen to their small town.
This full-length documentary details the events and history leading up to the demise of Dublin Dr Pepper, as well as the public outcry that continues to this day. With exclusive footage and interviews, “Bottled Up” provides an insider’s look at the battle over Dublin Dr Pepper.
