Please help me identify this font used in A&W Restaurant marketing.

It is used in this PDF and goes by the name of ‘AWRetro’—quite likely that it is an exclusive typeface for the company using it.

The A&W typeface is very late 1950s when "tipsy" or "bouncy" serifs were the height of fashion. A good fit with the A&W retro values image. AFAIK A&W is not going to make it available to the public.
If you want something with a similar treatment of the lettering you could try a couple of fonts by Alex Kaczun, Beatnick:
