I can't help but smile after watching this video put up by Chow of John Nese. In it he talks about his Soda Pop Stop and his love for supporting independent soda-makers and giving them a helping hand to find their market. You can tell from the way he talks the passion he has and he's sold me on trying the rose flavour but I'm not sure about the cucumber one though.
And that website is so old school, love the animation : Soda Pop Stop
"John Nese is the proprietor of Galcos Soda Pop Stop in LA. His father ran it as a grocery store, and when the time came for John to take charge, he decided to convert it into the ultimate soda-lovers destination. About 500 pops line the shelves, sourced lovingly by John from around the world. John has made it his mission to keep small soda-makers afloat and help them find their consumers. Galcos also acts as a distributor for restaurants and bars along the West Coast, spreading the gospel of soda made with cane sugar (no high-fructose corn syrup if John can avoid it)."
