Best Soda Selection in Seattle?

I need to track down a lot of different kinds of soda over the next few months, and I'd be curious to hear anyone's tips on where to find a good selection. So far I've been directed to Full Throttle Bottles and Uwajimaya. Where else would you recommend looking?

Thanks, all!

  1. Cost Plus World Markets usually have a good selection of off beat sodas - and there are several in the area. An idea of the kinds of sodas they have can be seen online

    You can try Real Soda - they have a store in the area

    There is also Dry Soda's tasting room - although it is only for their soda.

        Be sure to check the Hispanic aisle. There are a couple of drinks there that I haven't found anywhere else. El Mercado Hispanic market in Pike Place has many great rare beverages as well.

        DD Meats in Mountlake Terrace has a modest selection of offbeat sodas hidden among their large selection of hot sauces. They have, for example, Hot Lips, a juice based soda from a Portland pizza joint.

          I tried hitting up Real Soda today, but the place was locked up and the phone number listed on the side of the building was disconnected. Did this place close?

            Got an email from Real Soda stating that the Seattle warehouse is closed until further notice.

        3. Big John's PFI has some unusual sodas
