About Us

Yay Soda is a family business.

Eight years ago, Peter and Beth Ballhaussen became the proprietors of Town Hardware and General Store in Black Mountain, NC. Town Hardware has been the cornerstone of the town since the 1920s and now occupies the store fronts of an old five and dime and pharmacy in addition to their original hardware location. They carry everything from gee haw whimmy diddles to straight razors; throwing axes to 100+ craft and vintage sodas.

Peter and Beth teamed up with their son, Eric, to bring their amazing sodas to the wider world and Yay Soda was born.

They can ship you a throwing axe too, but that’s another website.

Have a soda you love and not seeing it on our site? Let us know. We’ll see what we can do to add it1

All bottles are 12 oz, with the exception of our Sprecher offerings, most of which come in a generous 16 oz bottle.

Your sodas come packed in 100% recyclable packaging made from cardboard and paper pulp. Of course accidents happen, but our packaging is tough as nails, so your sodas have the best chance of arriving unscathed.

We currently ship to the “lower 48” states. (Hawaii, we know you’re lower than all the other states. We don’t know why people say it this way).

All of our shipments come with a 100% money back guarantee. If something happens or you are dissatisfied for any reason, we will make it right.

We do! Check out our collections on the home page.

Our orders ship every 4 weeks by default, but contact us at hello@yaysoda.com and we can change it to whatever frequency you want.
