I have been wanting to get ahold of some of this stuff since I first heard about it last year. On November 12th or so, I will be heading up to the Lynchburg Virginia area for a few days then heading back some time around Tuesday or Wednesday the next week. I have read that you can pickup directly from their warehouse. Is this still true? Anyone know the address and hours? Should there be someone I contact before just showing up?
I was going to take my truck, but I have decided to just rent a small SUV instead. I'd like to get 10-15 cases of various products.

You might be able to find some Vault in Lynchburg.

from what i understand you can buy direct from the warehouse. as a courtesy, i would call ahead of time but several members of the board past and present have bought "large" quantities (large = your intended purchase size) from them. one even got a tour!

It's sort of like Surge. They say that it is a pop/energy drink, but the only reason for that is because it has so much caffeine. They are only selling it in test locations in 6 or 7 states right now, but it is supposedly going national in early 2006.

Found the email from the sales rep at West Jefferson with the days and hours.
We are open M-F 8am to 4pm. A case of longnecks is 14.50+tax, and we do not ship out cases. Thank you for your interest in our product.
When I went back in April I bought 5 cases and they barely fit in the trunk of a Saturn.
When you walk in the receptionist sends you to the back and you get a warehouse worker following you around with a pallot to pick out your drinks. They have this huge drink machine where for 50 cents you can try a bottle of what they sell if your debating to buy a case of it or not. The folks down there were really nice and easy to deal with, West Jefferson is a small rural mountain town with nice folks. Good luck when you go down there.

Thanks for that info. I am mainly after Dr Pepper, but I will get a case or two of some other stuff. A friend of mine from Tennessee is into Sun Drop, I'll surprise him with a case.

Do we have a comprehensive list of what they bottle?
