We know the liquor stores being closed blows. Fine Wine & Good Spirits tried online ordering through their website April 1st, but in a very limited way – and the site crashed (it’s been unavailable since… so, thanks).
Even with state stores closed, the bright side is some of our faves in Philly are stepping up and holding up the torch of libations for us all during these dark and dry times. That’s the Philly we know!
Check out these awesome heroes that are continuing our drinking wells for pick-up or delivery.

The three Di Bruno Bros. bottle shops are open with wine and beer (no liquor, sorry). Hours vary by location; find the selections inside the Rittenhouse and Ninth and Chestnut stores and in a standalone bottle shop in the Italian Market.
Extra love: With the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board limiting warehouse delivery for restocking shelves, Di Bruno is considering replenishing with more readily available bottles from local Pennsylvania wineries.
