I'm not a big beer drinker so I rarely buy a case. I pick up 6 packs when I'm going to NJ. Thanks to the arcane Penna liquor laws, beer distributors can't sell less than a case at a time (talk about encouraging drinking.)
Because of this delis charge top price for 6 packs. Sometimes it's nearly half the price of a case of 24 from a distributor.
Often I don't need a case and I want it fresh. I just need a 6 pack.
Any suggestions on places - delis, etcx - that sell the common brands (Miller, Bud etc) for a fair price?
