At one Manhattan pharmacy, you can buy more than just cold medicine.  DNAinfo reports that at one Upper West Side Duane Reade, “[y]ou can also replenish your beer supply at the pharmacy’s Brew York City, a service counter that pours out ‘growlers’ of beer, 64-ounce screw-top glass jugs.”  Brew York City stocks various hard-to-find craft beers like Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale, Ithaca Apricot Wheat and Sixpoint Sweet Action.  “It’s a pharmacy, so this is interesting,” said Clinton Bright, a visitor to the store. “You can buy beer here, but this is even better.”
