I recently read on Wikipedia that Cheerwine is pushing for nation wide availability by 2017. I did some searching on the net and it appears to be a valid quote. The Cheerwine main site has some hints to this when you do a zip code search for the drink. I typed in my zip code and it said something to the effect of "unfortunately Cheerwine isn't available in your area....yet."
I was wondering if anyone knew where the first rollouts were going to be. I know they'll probably move out from their core area instead of just randomly popping up in different states.
Interestingly, about 6 years ago or so, Cheerwine did show up here in East Texas in some rural areas for a few months. I was awash with joy for a little while, and then very sad when it disappeared again.
