Beer distributor proposed for old Superior Plumbing on Snyder Ave.

Thanks to the neighborhood tipster who notified us of this story. If you see something, say something – in an email to

An orange liquor-license app popped up in the window at 1218 Snyder Ave., the former Superior Plumbing supply store that closed in August.

This type of application is not for a restaurant, but a beer distributor, which means selling by the case.

There are several peculiar things about this application, though. For one, it doesn’t list a lawyer representing the transfer of the liquor license. It’s also filled out incorrectly, since this is a new owner and a new location, not just a new owner as the app indicates.

Then when you search the state Liquor Control Board’s website, there are no names or officers listed, also a no-no. How does the PLCB let that happen?

We’re trying to find out some more info and will keep you posted.

    That’s disappointing. How many beer distributors does South Philly need?

    I’ve been waiting for the closed up distributor on W Passyunk/Snyder to open back up, but this one is even closer to my house.

    All for it – hope they get their paperwork together.
