Best discovery of the weekend

Oh, Dr. Brown, where have you been all my life? I've never been a regular imbiber of sodas, save the occasional frothy mug of root beer with a slice of pizza, but upon a trip to Artie's Delicatessen, I found a new refreshing soda to love. Behold: Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray Soda.Flavored with celery seed extract, according to Wikipedia, this soda is apparently fairly easy to find in New York City, but rather obscure outside the region. I've been hoping for a vegetal flavored comeback of this sort after I first tried an inspired and subtly nuanced cocktail featuring fresh celery juice at The Alembic on Haight Street, in San Francisco. Sadly, I don't see it offered on the current cocktail menu. I'll have to see if I can recreate that cocktail, but until then, I'll be sipping Cel-Ray when I can. Anyone know where, or if it's sourced anywhere in the Bay Area?

a vegetable flavored soda? very interseting, perhaps you could be an importer in SF. it sounds like that would go over well here! :)
