Philadelphia has some zany regulations when it comes to alcoholic consumption. One can not buy beer in supermarkets, service stations, etc. If you want beer you have to go to a wholesale store and buy a case. (Stone's is a great place for that option, they deliver!) No six packs, no half-case. A case or larger. But wait, through some weird loophole certain stores and delis are allowed to sell individual bottles and six packs at a significant price increase. I don't understand the arcane laws, but hey, what can you do? One place that sells individual bottles is the wonderful, Foodery. They have two locations, Center City and Northern Liberties. The pictures taken are at the NoLibs location. They have an amazing selection of craft beer both local and elsewhere. The place should satisfy any beer connoisseur's palate. The only downside is that it's expensive as hell.
