    Cheerwine is now on the shelf in southeast Alabama. Picked up some over the weekend. Regular and diet available in 20 oz. plastic. Also picked up 12 oz. glass of A&W, Sundrop, RC, Nehi grape and peach, Orange Crush, and Welch's grape.

    The meat water on the bottom of my fridge is more refreshing than Cheerwine. Who the hell is drinking this crap?

    I had a Cheerwine 16.9 last night. Has an interesting taste in a PET bottle.. Sure, not as good as a longneck, but still good (and I only paid about $1.99 for the 6pk).

    6 pack 1/2 liters? Has Davis, CD Potomac, or CD Honickman now added Cheerwine?

    No, they were from my last road trip. I picked them up in the Charlotte NC area, produced by Independent Beverage of Charlotte.

    Pepsi Central Virginia now distributes Cheerwine, in five central VA counties, including the cities of Staunton and Harrisonburg.

    It's also distributed by different distributors in southern Virginia. The small 4th tier in my area had 2L, 6pks, and longnecks.. not sure if they still carry it, though.

    Hmmm...There must have been some switching down in VA. I saw Cheerwine in Staunton and Harrisonburg, from the RC bottler, which is independent from the Dr Pepper/Mountain Dew bottler who has Sierra Mist. It's a screwed up area, sounds like it's getting more outlandish. Did DP/MD pick up RC or something?

    According to their website, Cheerwine is distributed by Pepsi Central Virginia in that area. The Blue Ridge Beverage website hasn't been updated in probably two years, and they don't even mention their Sierra Mist franchise.

    The whole situation is really confusing.

    According to a website I just read, there are only two non-Pepsi bottlers with Mountain Dew. RC Winchester and Dr Pepper West Jefferson. I could be wrong, but that then would lead me to beleive that Winchester owns the rights to MD and DP down as far as Staunton, probably even further -- but I could be wrong on that one. And from the looks of the caps in those areas, the bottlers are selling a lot of stuff to each other. The Sierra Mist I saw was coming from Pepsi Pennsauken, who also bottles Canada Dry and other DPSU products for their sister company, Canada Dry Delaware Valley.

    Usually the way I decipher who has what in what area is to look at the shelf tags. Food Lion always lists the name of the distributor right on the label, so you know who it's coming from.
