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.

Tiny, cramped, and full of Slim Jims and beer. A good place, especially in PA where decent bottle shops are a rare find.

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.

A standout beer store anywhere, The Foodery caters to a large and growing sophisticated crowd in the philly area. It is one of few places in the state you can get single bottles, with a discount on six packs. Excellent quality, as with limited space they want the very best. Service was outstanding, with a highly knowledgeable staff member giving me lots of time with his opinions, like a great wine store, less the many interuptions from multiple customers. I paid more than I would have elsewhere, probably a 30% on average so it is pricing what the market can bear.

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.

If I hadnít read about this place on RateBeer, I wouldnít have known it existed even though I live across the bridge from Philly and Iím in the city often. Looks like a tiny corner convenience store with some beer signs in the windows. Looks more like a tiny corner convenience store on the inside because it is one .... until you notice the display fridges in the back and on the right wall. By far, this place has the widest selection of craft brews anywhere near Philly and that includes the giant stores across the river. Many West Coast brews that are impossible to get in NJ (including Stone & Hair Of The Dog). Impressive selection of Belgians, Germans & even some unusual Asians as well. Only criticism is that the majority of the bottles are already chilled. Overall, this place is a must visit and worth the parking nightmare. Sample finds (Feb.í05): Dogfish Head WWS, 120mn IPA & Pangea, Stone Smoked Porter & Ruiniation, Hair of the Dog Adam & North Coast Old Rasputin.

This is hard to rate, as it seems to be a rather unique sort of place for its area. Tiny little convenience store, basically, that somehow gets around PAís medieval beer case-laws and sells singles of all kinds of stuff. Samples from my visit: Dupont Reserve, Courage í93, The Beast, Allagash Four...lots of great stuff. Big PA micro selection, but hardly complete (where were the Stoudts 765s?). And the clerks not only knew nothing, but couldnít scare up a big box for all of my big beers. They did throw in a free glass since I spent over $100, so thatís worth something. Clearly a must stop in Philly, if you conít have time to get across the border to NJ/DE/MA (which I didnít).

Great selection of most any type of beer you are looking for, they even carry some ciders. As of 4/3/04 they had bottles of the 2002 vintage of Cidre Dupont Reserve. Cramped, and expensive, but nice to make the trip once in a while.

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
