I mention Darcy O'Neil's Fix the Pumps book, of course, as well as his line of acid phosphate and lactart.

I name-check a few bars serving acid phosphate drinks as well, including:

  • The Franklin Fountain in Philadelphia
  • Honor Kitchen & Cocktails in Emeryville
  • Russell House in Cambridge, Mass
  • Still & Stir in Worcester, Mass
