Ale-8-One Makes List of Top Regional Soft Drinks [Video]

I remember the first time I ever tried an Ale-8-One.  I honestly had never heard of it until I attended college at Kentucky Wesleyan.  One of my fraternity brothers, Brian Beck, LOVED it!  And he always a had a supply of it in his dorm room.  He was basically an Ale 8 hoarder. See, Brian was from Winchester, Kentucky, where Ale-8-One is bottled.  And I remember some friends of mine and I heading up to Winchester to spend the weekend at his house.  There were two highlights that weekend: his mother's homemade pasta sauce (which was so insanely good that I still remember it 25 years later) and our drive-by of Ale-8-One. All I can say about Ale 8 is that it packs quite a punch and it's made Mental Floss' list of The Top Regional Soft Drinks!
