    Adult Beverage Finder

    I'm looking for a fairly obscure alcoholic beverage, and was wondering if anyone knows of a website that lets people know where to find different brands. I can't find one, and there really should be a valuable service like that!

    Re: Adult Beverage Finder

    How obscure, and what kind of alcohol?

    Or does it really matter?

    I suppose it matters. If someone knows where to find it in the Twin Cities, that would be great. If someone knows where to find it in Des Moines, that works too, since I have family there.

    It's Scrumpy Jack, an English cider.

    Re: Adult Beverage Finder

    TheDrinkshop.com had it listed, looks like they ship it to the US. I guess you could see who imports it to the US and go from there also.

    Re: Adult Beverage Finder

    A lot of times you can get your local liquor store to order you a case of something, assuming their distributor carries it.

    Re: Adult Beverage Finder

    Have you checked the liquor store inside the MOA right next to Nordstroms Closet, IIRC. They usually carry a selection that is a bit more obscure than some of the other stores, or maybe Surdyks?

    With economy shipping, a 12 pack of Scrumpy Jack comes out to $58.

    Maybe I don't like it as much as I thought.

    Thanks for all the ideas, guys, but unless I find it locally, or go back to England, I think I'm out of luck.

    I've been trying to find Caffrey's ever since Coors stopped distributing it back in 2001. Shipping cost from England of over $100 per case keeps me drinking alternatives.

    Re: Adult Beverage Finder

    Scrumpy Jack tastes like a sweet/tart apple juice, and packs a punch at 6% alcohol. It's dangerous stuff, but oh so good.

    I'll have to stick to Woodpecker, which was my 3rd favorite cider in England. I can occasionally find Strongbow here and there, too.
