Stopped in here a few days ago while in the area for an event. Figured it was only a few blocks away, might as well check it out.

Atmosphere was just like others have mentioned, it is pretty much a cross between a corner bodega and a bottle shop. It is really cramped and you have to walk around numerous objects to get anywhere. Quality was ok, nothing amazing, some of the bottles looked pretty old. Service was pretty good, I had two different people ask if I needed any help. Selection was decent for the size of the space but nothing amazing. Only one or two things I would have gotten had the prices been reasonable, which they certainly were not.

Overall an ok bottle shop in the heart of the city. If I lived in the area I might check it out every now and then to see what they have but I doubt I will return.

A small (in size) beer store in the lively part of Philly, walking distance from many best Phillyís best watering holes. Very small in size, 20 people in this tiny store an youíre stepping on each otherís toes. But they crammed more cool beers than most beer stores 3 times its size. Americans and imports including a bunch of limited offerings you expect to only find in larger more Ďtypicalí beer stores. This is PA and as with most PA beer stores (especially those in the cites) this ainít cheap. Not sure what other options there is downtown Philly but this one was good enough for me, I bought more things than I could carry. Also a deli selection for your beer munchies.

Stopped by on the look out for obscure Countries and States and was not disappointed - although the chaotic arrangement made it hard to find anything. The range seemed to be extensive, although I didnít see anything obscure in the Belgian and British sections.

Pretty sick beer store in downtown Philly. Pretty small area but they pack a lot of big names like BFM, Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, etc. Even found some 50/50 Eclipse there. Anyhow, the prices were high, but lower than I expected in a lot of cases. Some of the beers they get you wonder how they could ever be distributed. The guys were helpful, it was a nice shopping experience.

Very good selection, with rarities. they sel mixed six-packs. the problems are that the preces are really high, and to know the price of a bottle you need to look at a single catalogue in a table.

Stopped in to browse and wound up spending nearly $100 on six bottles...they do a 10% discount on a mixed sixer. Cramped little store so browsing is tight. Nice selection of pretty standard crafts but theres a handful of hidden gems as well. The staff seems pretty knowledgeable...prices are fair to high. Lots of snacks available here including a full lineup of ritter sports! Didnt endulge in any of the real food though.

Its not an attractive place, but they pack in quite a few good beers into it! Prices are a bit high, but consistent to Philly.

A slightly smaller version of the other Foodery (which I was more familiar with when I lived in Philly), but the selection doesnt disappoint. A strongly recommended stop, if you are in the area and need to pick up some sick brews.

I went here on the recommendation of a place close to the train station and decided to check. Inside is nothing special, you wouldnít know beer was sold there unless you were told. Itís also very small in here, so donít come with a crowd of people. The beer is scatted around the back edges where they fill almost the whole cold section, approximately 8 windows. Thereís a decent selection here, being from New Jersey thereís things here that we donít get so it looks like a lot, though for Philly locals it may be considered small. Either way, for NJ people thereís a lot of stuff to spend your money on here. Unfortunately thereís no prices, but the staff I dealt with had no problems. Prices were a tad on the high side, then again Iíve heard most places in Philly are high so take that with a grain of salt. I think the Bells Two Hearted I bought was $3, and the Speedway Stout I bought was $18. They do offer 10% discounts on every 6 bottles you buy, 12 ounce up to 750ml. Itís definitely worth visiting if youíre taking a train over from New Jersey to get new beer, thereís a lot of stuff we canít get there.

Small store in downtown near the historic district, Foodery is a very cramped convenience store that happens to be stocked with 90% beer and maybe 10% food, soda, and custom sandwiches. Everything essentially is for sale as a single and there are no price tags, which can get quite annoying. But, you do get what you pay for and that is quite an outstanding selection ranging from Hair of the Dog to FiftyFifty Eclipse to Cigar City to Lost Abbey to odd Belgian stuff. I usually stop in here each trip to Philly and spend around $40-$50 on weird stuff I canít find anywhere else. Most recent haul was 50/50 Eclipse Grand Cru for $29 each. You can go up to the counter and ask for a price check on anything you want, though that can be a little annoying. Donít come in here with a large group because only 4-5 people can fit in this place before it gets too cramped. There isnít someone on staff to answer beer questions, just ask the cashier essentially for anything. I usually get a nice response. Also, they have quite a bit of glassware for sale. Sandwiches in the back are apparently yummy, but Iíve never gotten one.
