  1. I think I have seen it at Beverage Warehouse near the west end of Culver City

    4935 McConnell Ave # 21
    Los Angeles, CA 90066

    Phone: (310) 306-2822

    1. Sioux City Root Beer and/or Sioux City Sarsaparilla are the best and they are both available at Galco's. OMG, so good when chilled on ice for several hours but be careful because this stuff is not sugar free. Try them both, Sioux City Root Beer and the Sioux City Sarsaparilla. This stuff is really my favorate drink but I will not allow my self to have another until I loose the 40 pounds I gained two Summers ago when I began drinking it by the case after case. So go slow.....

        1. And you could try making your own, homebrew supply shops should be able to fix you up with the ingredients and instructions.

          1. Target has one by their label, Archer Farms. I really liked it too!

            1. 99 Ranch Market has an Asian brand: "Hey Sung" or "Hey Song".

              1. Real soda in Real bottles carries more then anyone, period, end of story. www.realsoda.com/ I even know a restaurant that carries thier stuff, but I'm sworn to secrecy!

                1. Galco
                  Trader Joe's
                  Beverages and More

                  1. Wow! Thanks for all the insight, everyone! I'll head out this weekend & stock the fridge for him!

                    2. Calico Saloon, Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park, California sells Sarsaparilla, but the bottle is labeled Sasparilla.

                        I think Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor carries it, too.
