Looking for a local dist in Portland, OR (zip 97210) that carries
Strongbow cider (preferably in bottles).  I found several on-line dist
but the shipping is too costly.
There is no answer at this time.

I found this comment on that may be of help to you:

I would search every store I would go into and have been doing so
since I came over here 3yrs ago but recently I have been able to buy
at ABC Liquors and Albertsons Grocery store. It cost about $7 for 6
bottles. I live on Florida and I know these stores are dotted around
all of Florida but I am not sure if they have stores in the states you

Well it looks like Albertson?s will actual work.  I ended up
contacting all the local grocery stores via email and Albertson?s was
the most responsive.  The NW Regional Manager for Alcohol Beverage for
Albertson?s contacted me this morning and said he could have a case
for me tomorrow in the store of my choosing.

And any future orders they can turn around within 1-3 days.  Pretty good.

Thanks plh215-ga!

PS  I am going to try and figure out how to leave you a tip since you
pointed me in the right direction!

Beverages & More ( is now selling Strongbow Hard Cider
on their web site, and presumably at their stores, although it looks
like they are California-only.  Bummer for you, but good for me! ;-)

Good luck!  I drank a lot of Strongbow when I lived in Australia, and
it's wonderful stuff.  Now if BevMo would just start stocking
Strongbow Draught, or better yet, Strongbow Sweet, I'd be in heaven.

This is so strange that I happened to be looking for some Strongbow in
the US as well...and it brought me to this website and such a familiar
username to me. that you Sam!?!

Just wanted to say hey if it is!  I thought there might be a chance if
it is you, that you remember me!?!
