    Can someone sort out which distributors have rights to different DPSU brands in Chicago? I recall from my last trip seeing Crush, Nehi, Upper 10 and other small DPSU brands but I never figured out who's got what. RC Chicago probably has the Nehi but does anyone have a complete picture?

    Well, they have Nehi. I remember seeing 2L from them. They also have their own brand -- Old Towne, but you knew that already.

    DPSUBG has 7up and Dr Pepper.

    A&W is done by RC Chicago, I think. My guess is then that DPSUBG might have Hires in the area. Big Red is probably in the area from DPSUBG, as ABC has it around Pittsburgh.

    Tahitian Treat and Squirt are done by CCE.

    i had a hunch that a&w was RC. there's an indie canada dry or 7up bottler in illinois or indiana that makes 10oz glass because i saw them when i was in golden, colorado. anyone know of it? i can't remember the name.

    The Dad's and Crush that I bought there was canned by ABC. I saw Crush and Nehi in the same stores so I'm guessing that Crush is dpsu. I didn't see Hires either, maybe dpsu uses Dad's there?

    i bet most, if not all of their cans are canned by dpsu. that doesn't mean much anymore in this day and age of distributors purchasing from others.
