    Default Hires Root Beer

    Just as a followup: I've been on the phone for days trying to locate Hires. I live in Boston, and Polar/Cropac stopped bottling Hires "seven years ago," according to their warehouse in Worcester. In the DC area, Hires is available at Shoppers (shoppersfood.com) in MD and VA, but I haven't yet figured out which bottler supplies it to them. North of the border, Cott Beverages in Mississauga, Ontario bottles and sells it to National Grocers, who apparently distributes it around the Toronto area. NG is a membership/cash carry wholesaler but for less than pallet load purchases, no membership required. $3.99 per 12-pack, and any NG store can get them in.

    Considering the difficulty,$3.99 for a 12pk is a pretty good price.

    Shoppers either gets Hires from their own warehouse, or from Beverage Network in Jessup Md.

    BN distributes Hires, Crush and Vernors, as well as Fiji and Clearly Canadian in some areas. They're owned by Xtreme in Ft Lauderdale, Florida.

    Independent Beverage in Charlotte NC produces Hires. I used to be able to find it around here until the distributor (Superior Beverages in Phoenixville PA) went under.

    According to Cadbury-Schweppes, the Giant Eagle in Willowick, OH (440-944-8900) carries it. That's not exactly close to Flint, though. I would recommend just crossing into Ontario, where Cott actively produces it.

    They're giving you some bad information. I bought Hires root beer and cream soda, canned by Cro-Pac, in PA in 2004 ... it wasn't old product, either. Maybe they have stopped producing it, but it's not been that long ago.
