    Does Brickskeller not have it?

    Naw, Brickskeller had a rather poor cider selection. They carry the usual Hornsby’s and Woodchuck, which I can’t stand. They do carry Blackthorne cider from England, but it’s not as good as Strongbow. Oh, and I’m kinda pissed at Brickskeller…last time we went there they didn’t have like 5 of my top choices in stock.

    whole foods is the shit. i am a HUGE fan and can still not fathom why LA has like 10 and san diego two, and the desert none. are we or are we not an affluent community full of snooty people who demand over qualified produce? i think so. and trader joes is not big enough for all of the old people.

    David, if faced with a choice of Strongbow in a can or glass bottle, I would prefer the bottled version because it tastes a bit better…the only downside is, you don’t get as much in the bottle as you do the can.

    Found your website looking for info on Strongbow in DC … I’ve enjoyed several pints at Elephant and Castle. I was in Frederick, MD, last weekend … a nice drive to a cute old, downtown area. There’s a British corner store on the main street that had Strongbow, Woodpecker and Magner’s, all in bottles. It’s out of the way, for sure, but if you’re up there, it’s worth checking out!

    I found strongbow at the lost dog cafe in Falls Church, VA. It sells for $9.50 for 4 cans (500ml). Not as cheap as some places but at least its only down the road for me to get to cider heaven.

    Also, The Red Derby in Capital Heights sells it by the can for $3 a can if I remember correctly (there’s a good chance I’m not).

    Mimi’s Convenience Store on MacArthur Blvd in the Palisades has it in bottles. Does anyone remember when it was “Bulmer’s Strongbow”, as it was in Canada in the 1980′s? I’d love to find an old can or bottle with the old archer on it!
