We had a great time touring the Bottling Works. We had a great guide and we got to taste several of the different sodas. It was worth the money and worth the trip from Fort Worth. We had an enjoyable day in Dublin.

I have stopped here numerous times during the years, and am saddened to see the old Dr Pepper bottling plant is no longer in operation. They still have a museum and continue to make other bottled drinks, but the original flavor of Dr Pepper can no longer be purchased here.

We bought a Groupon to go on the tour and get floats. It was a great deal. You tour of the old bottling facility next door to the Soda Shop (they're going to build a new bottling facility at some point and this one is rarely active). While on the tour, you get to sample a few flavors of their... More

After years of driving by the place a friend and I stopped to check it out. Interesting pieces of history and a old school soda fountain. They also have a variety of snacks and other drinks available.

Stopped with the family in Dublin and Docs soda shop (part of the bottling facility). Decided against tour with pricing at $5 adults, $4 children. Instead, spent the money on a variety of flavored sodas @ $1.25 ea only because of the "pure cane sugar" (instead of todays norm of high fructose corn syrup) ingredient. Girls behind counter were very... More

This is a really great place to visit. It's interesting and you learn a lot of history about soda. It just isn't as good without the Dublin Dr Pepper though. Before they stopped making it, I bought a few cases and I've kept the last bottle as a memento. If you're in the area, go and visit this place. If... More

My wife and best friend accompanied me to Dublin, Texas to see the Dublin Bottling Works tour. It was a great trip. We toured the famous little bottling plant and learned some great history of the former "Oldest Dr.Pepper Bottler" in Texas. You can see the way it was once done before computers took over. You can taste product that... More

My husband is a huge Dr Pepper fan & loved Dublin Dr Pepper from the 1st time he tried it. We toured the Waco museum before the lawsuit, but didn't make it to Dublin until after. Still some interesting history & we brought a variety pack of what they still bottle there back to Knoxville, TN with us. I hate... More
