Regional Drinks


Recommended Posts

Reading this article about Buckfast Tonic Wine reminded me of one of my favorite Washington Post articles about Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy. Does anyone have other examples of brands/drinks that seem to dominate a localized geographic area yet remain unknown or unappreciated pretty much everywhere else?

I remember that article about Allen's so well that I had a customer who summers in Maine obtain some for me, in the 1.75L size, naturally :P

That was such a lurid story, and I've shown it to people who couldn't believe that what I was telling them about it was true. The "Champagne of Maine!" ;)

Nothing else I can think of that is a regional favorite, though I do hear that brandy, such as Christian Brothers Brandy in particular, is immensely popular in Minnesota.
