ANYONE HEADED SOUTH?

It seems like this product makes someone's Christmas list at my house every year. The problem is...it's only made in Kentucky..and it's only distributed in Kentucky. Ale-8-One, is a Ginger Ale type of beverage, and really...it's very unique. It grows on you. Have you ever had one?

THE PROBLEM WITH SHIPPING

So unless someone I know is going to Kentucky before the holidays, we are going to be Ale-8-Oneless this year. They do make some of it available in cans..but ones you have it in glass. You'll never go back. I'm not kidding. This addictive beverage is great when it's super chilled...sort of like a frosty mug of root beer. A frosty green glass of Ale-8-One is priceless.

Can you imagine? Me ordering two heavy cases of pop from Kentucky...in glass bottles. Heck...I can't even get them back to Minnesota in my own car without busting a few. I left it in my trunk on the way back one year, and half of them froze.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO IMPORT WHEN YOU GO OUT OF STATE?

What things do you just have to buy when you go to certain states? What's your Ale-8?
