What is intesting about Philly are the laws regarding alchohol and I am still trying to understand them. But here is what I've got so far:
- You can only get six-packs of beer from restaurants or bars, you cannot by it at a store and it is extremely expensive ($9 for mediocre beer).
- If you want more than a six-pack you can only get a case of beer and you can only get that at a beer distributor. These distributors function on normal business hours (open until 6 to 7). However, beer is a steal here; you can get a case of Sierra Nevada for $20, which is not a bad price.
- Hard alcohol and wine can only be bought at Spirit and Wine shops (where beers is strictly verbotten).
