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.

The place is a mini mart with coolers of single bottles. Nice items, but high prices in general. No price tags also and really disorganized. The location in the city center make this place a woth stop for a tourist.

7 years ago, when I first heard of the Foodery, I dreamt of it as a place comparable to the great NY state of MA beer stores, but with a different selection including plenty of PA stuff. I was pretty shocked that itís actually a smallish convenience store, though with an obvious focus on craft beer with its lines of coolers. Great Lakes, Troegs, Founders, Victory, Mikkeller, Lost Abbey, Russian River were all spotted, but I canít say there were many special rarities. All in all probably less than 500 beers and not a single one of them with a price tag and that is quite annoying btw and hurting the service score. I came out a bit disappointed and cannot call it a must though its location is convenient.

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.

While there was a nice selection here I ultimately ended up leaving empty handed. No bottles have prices, nor are there any markings anywhere in the coolers. What there is instead is a binder that you can look up things in. The only problem? It was the beginning of April 2010, and the book had last been updated at the beginning of November 2009. There were tons of bottles not on the list (all of the Bruery stuff for example), and lots of things (Three Floyds, which didnít exist in the store) which make me think that even that November date might have just been a reprint of an even older version with no one doing any inventory checking. If this were my only option as a local Iíd probably buy the stray bottle or two, but since I could afford to wait until I got home (or somewhere more organized) I skipped any purchases here.

Great selection of bottles, the pricing is way to high though. Some of their pricing is higher then it is to take out at Monks. Great palce to find something you really need right away, if you can wait find it somewhere else and save a ton.

Stopped by on a trip through Philadelphia. Didnít get approached by the staff, but found what I was looking for easily enough. Found some cool stuff that I canít get in Florida; Hair of the Dog, Pretty Things, etc.. Definitely a bit pricy, but convenient to where weíre staying.

Good selection, Mix-n-match 6 packs. A little pricey though. Friendly staff. I was able to get some East Coast beers I normally cant get from here, so I liked it.
