Vernor's Ginger Ale

Does anyplace in New York City carry Vernor's Ginger Ale??? Either a store or a restaurant.

    I am from Algonac, Michigan and love Vernor's! I love how the bubbles and the ginger are so prominent that it makes you sneeze when taking your first sip. I always bring a few six packs back to NYC in my suitcase. Sure wish you could buy it here . . . . . .

      The closest place to NY to find Vernors is Delaware. They stock it at Giant supermarkets (part of the Stop & Shop chain), but they only have a few cases at any given time. Every time I head down towards DC, I buy what I can find. Happy motoring!

          VERNOR'S FOUND IN MANHATTAN! This ex-Detroiter stumbled on Vernor's at Kitchen, a good Mexican takeout place at 218 Eighth Ave between 21st and 22nd. Please go and buy enough to encourage them to keep carrying it--but please leave me a couple of cans.

            Native Detroiter here. Vernor's is not distributed in NYC, but can occasionally be found in places like Nosher mentions because someone brings it in themselves. The closest places Vernor's is officially distributed are, I believe, in western New York state and in central Pennsylvania.

              This place closed a couple weeks ago - it was the only place I knew of for Vernor's!!

              I saw it at an Italian grocery at about 82nd Street and 18th Avenue in Brooklyn. No idea at all why it was there though.

                  I did look online and found a pretty good deal for 4 12-packs. The shipping is nominal. Thanks
