Stores that carry Barritt's Ginger Beer

I'm looking for stores in the Boston metro area that carry Barritt's Ginger Beer

I know the Golden Goose in the North End does. Any stores in the Newton/Needham area?

    Is there a Kappy's liquors in your area? That's where I bought my Barritt's ginger beer. Over near the mixers and sodas.

      I get it at the West Concord Supermarket, a cool hundred-year-old independent market with some cool stuff, and some amazingly good steaks cut to order. Love my Dark And Stormys.......

        Blanchards in JP carries it, not sure about other locations.

          Not convenient for the OP, but yes, the Blanchards in Allston has it as well.

            Martignetti's on Soldiers Field Road as well, which is at least less inconvenient for the OP. Last time I was in there a couple weeks ago, they had a big floor display of Barritt's right next to the bottles of Gosling's.

            Which reminds me that a pitcher of Dark 'n' Stormies sounds quite good...

            We stock it regularly (as the drummer in my husband's band only drinks this when they rehearse in our home every week.) I get it at Stop and Shop on McGrath Highway (corner of Route 38).

              Gotta get some Barritt's myself. Bought some fru fru yuppie crap ginger beer at Whole Food and it was not right for my dark and stormy. :(

                I think I saw it the other day in Downtown Wine & Spirits, Davis Square.

                  I just bought some at the Wine Cellar of Selene in Waltham. They have singles in the non-alcoholic cooler near the registers and a boxed set of two cans with a bottle of Goslings Dark Seal rum for $20.

                      Colonial liquor in Acton has it. Any help on where to get it in southern, NH??? Maybe the Portsmouth area??

                        Maybe try the New England board? Southern NH isn't "Boston Area" by any stretch of the imagination.
