I walked into this store and first was confused. Looked like a small deli and convenient store. Small place so I walked to the back and there I noticed a unbelievable selection. All singles so you can make a mix 6 and receive 10% off. They carry Bells, Three Floyds, Old Rasputin, Anderson Valley, Stoudts, Jolly Pumpkin, Nogne, Madison River, Yards, JW Lees just to mention a few. Very impressed. The service topped everything, the guys there were so helpful, they searched in the back for all the warm brews that had so I bring them back. A great experience. If you are in Phily it is a must.
Very well lit store and clean. Big selection of beer bottles, Cantillon, Mikkeller. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. You can easily mix and match singles. The stores prices are high. They sell chips and dips and other snacks. Decent place.
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.
The Foodery is a great little hole in the wall to pull bottles when you need that special fix. They usually have something you canít find elsewhere.

Center City shop that is basically a mini mart filled with coolers of rare beers. The shit isnít organized, but that is what is cool about finding stuff. The staff will help if you open your mouth otherwise, its Philly and they donít give a dayum if your are shopping. Theren are goodies that are collectig dust that are in the aisles. I just wish we has something like this in Baltimore.
Huge & excellent selection, a bit on the expensive side but you have to expect that from both Philly and a bottle shop, lots of local stuff as well as an excellent assortment of imports, lots of Belgians
I live in Center City Philly about a 10 minute walk to the Foodery so I go here all the time. I think the bring a tube of lube comment about getting raped on prices is 100% accurate. Iíll buy a mixed sixer here an it will easily run me $20-$25. I keep coming back, however, because the selection is great. They always have something I want to try and new stuff is coming in every week. The staff has been helpful at times and nonexistant at others. If you are a beer lover in Philly that doesnít want to buy cases all the time than this is your place. Check it out.
Just a hole in the wall convience store that happens to have an amazing beer selection. If only PA would get rid of their beer laws. Anyways, the selection was great, especially since everything was singles though you need to get multiples of 6. The beer guy was helpfull at finding stuff and recommending local goodies. Great place.

This store certainly has a good selection. I remember looking up the Double Bastard and trying to find it in Philly. I found this store in a snow storm like a month ago. I was in awe of the selection. Basically every major American Brewery is represented well here except for Ale Smith. That is to be expected though. The highlights include Stone Arrogant Bastard, Smoked Porter, IPA and Ruination. Also Three Floyds Alpha King and Dreadnaught occasionally. Great Divideís Hercules Double IPA which I strongly recommend. Bells is also well represented. Basically my work of advice is if they have something that is really difficult to find get it because they will sell out quickly. The service is very good overall. One guy in there really knew his stuff. One of the cashiers had no clue. This is certainly a place to visit if you come to Philly. I recommend it.
