Like annual bicentennial celebrations, burning flag pins, and budget-cutting lotteries that determine which state will be forced to secede next, beer and burgers have become an American institution. Enjoy the tastiest tradition with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of burgers, brews, and more at 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, located on Walnut Avenue downtown. Ninety-Nine Bottles of Beer stays open late for adults and is an all-ages establishment until 10 p.m. This Groupon can only be used toward alcohol with the purchase of at least one food item.
Ninety-Nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall’s menu offers diners a vast array of beers, burgers, and meal-worthy sandwiches. Win your stomach’s heart with a hearty starter such as the fish and chips with salmon ($12.99) or the garlic- and cheddar-slathered steak fries ($7.49). European-influenced sandwiches such as the calamari steak sandwich ($11.99) treat taste buds to joy akin to being entitled 10 weeks’ paid vacation. The fiesta jalapeno burger, meanwhile, puts guacamole, jack cheese, and jalapenos on a half-pound patty for a party that ends best if no one rubs their eyes ($9.79). Herbivores can dig into the veggie pocket, which packs pita bread with sprouts, tomatoes, pine nuts, mushrooms, and more ($9.79). A gigantic, gourmet beer list boasting 43 brews on tap helps to inject domestic dinners with a cultured cosmopolitanism. A kids’ menu is available for humans with smaller stomachs and fewer dendrochronology rings.
Ninety-Nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall’s homey atmosphere caters to a sense of culinary kinship and helps to keep heated third-beer debates about the politics surrounding the Fresh Prince’s return to Philadelphia framed in a friendly manner. In addition to superior sustenance, customers can enjoy the comfortable hum of TVs or eat out on the patio and scan the skies for future pen pals. Customers who try all 99 beers—over any length of time or number of visits—will get their picture on the restaurant’s Wall of Fame, so use today’s Groupon to start building the foundation of your sudsy celebrity status.
