Latimer is directly next door to McGlinchey’s and around the corner from Monk’s. NYC style deli beer selection concentrating on corked Belgian and Belgian style bottles plus other Euro and American singles and 22 ounce bombers. Avery, Heavyweight, Ommegang, and Victory all present. It’s one of the few options in Center City Philadelphia to obtain craft beer to go. A 750 ml bottle of Chimay Blue was priced $10.20. Just for reference you can get a 330 ml of Chimay Blue next door @ McGlinchey’s for $4.95.

Good selection, lots of good stuff, and the key is, lets you buy singles unlike most Philly places. It’s basically a typical crap convenience store with an inexplicably good beer selection. Some excellent belgians, unibroue, german stuff, local craft beers, etc. It is a bit expensive but as one of two places I know in the area where you can buy decent singles and 750ml bottles it’s a key place for any philly beer lover to know of. I’d rather go to the Foodery, but if I’m in this area, which I often am, I always stop in to get something new to try.
