Your best bet is to go to Jersey or Delaware, where the booze is way cheaper. But technically, you’re not supposed to bring it over state lines. But pshaw on that! 😉

Call Phillips at 609-397-0587. They deliver the alcohol and buy back unused alcohol (except beer).

I don’t have any specific recommendations since I don’t live in your area, but, some things to keep in mind:

-Some places will buy back bottles if you have extra. Find out! That way you can be comfortable buying more than enough and not worry about having way too much at the end!

-If you know anyone in the military, you can get pretty good discounts by buying on military bases.

-Kegs go really far, and if you have a favorite microbrew, you could get a keg of their beer. You can also rent more professional taps for kegs to make them look nicer to pour.

We are getting married in Media (live in Malvern) and we’re going to get our liquor from Total Wines in Wilmington on Naamans Rd.  You can get coupons in the Inquirer almost every week and look for sales for what you want.

Ditto on Total Wine on Naamans Rd.  We went there to check out prices (it’s huge!!) and they looked really reasonable.  Plus cases are normally 5% off.

For wine, PA has some AMAZING deals on their Chairman’s Selections of wines.  You can seriously get an 80 dollar bottle for $30, or a $50 for $20 (and so on).  Very good wines, very good prices.  We’re total winos and have been amazed at their selection and deals.  Go to the PLCB website to check out what their Chairman’s Selections are, and taste some of them!  You’re bound to find something you love–then buy in bulk!!
