New to “With the Band?” Go to the beginning of the current story arc here. You can also use the handy guitars at the bottom of the page to navigate to First, Previous, Next, or Last tracks, or go directly to the Marshall Stack Archive! We update every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Cheerwine is a soda/soft drink bottled in North Carolina that isn’t easy to get outside of the South. Recently a friend brought me a 12-pack from Atlanta, and shortly after I discovered that there is a grocery store in Bedford, NH, about half an hour south of Concord, that carries it. Like Neil, I fell to my knees and gave thanks to the Universe and bought myself a case. If you’ve never had Cheerwine, and you like sweet cherry-flavored sodas, you should absolutely find one. They’re sublime. In New Hampshire you can get it at Fresh Market in Bedford; elsewhere you can order it online at Cheerwine (though the shipping costs are steep).

We’re going to be at Northeast Comic Con June 18th-19th; and my band, Ed for a Day, will be playing the Tilton/Northfield Old Home Day in Tilton, NH on June 25th, from noon to 1:30. Come see us if you’re around for any of those!

If you enjoy “With the Band”, please consider supporting our Patreon. Producing a strip like this three times a week requires a LOT of work and a little bit of expense. So please help me keep this going and support us. We’ll give you some awesome pictures of squirrels in return!

  1. This. So very this. I’ve had this reaction. Cheerwine has become pretty common here in DC, thankfully.

    The best way I can describe the taste is to imagine Cherry Coke. How it has, say, 80% Coke flavor and 20% cherry flavor. Now reverse those proportions. Cheerwine is 80% cherry and 20% Coke flavor.

    Avoid the diet version. It’s terrible.

    Now I need to go find some.

  2. It’s closer to a “cherry Coke” a bartender might make you (a Roy Rogers?) than a Cherry Coke is. It’s SOOOOO good! Now if I can only find some Cheerwine sherbet!
