Just across the street from Standard Tap. Good to see that most bottles are stored refrigerated but there are more scattered around on shelves. A lot of the stock I eyed off elsewhere around the city. Thereís a deli at the back grilling up sandwiches and the like. I didnít have any staff approach me to ask if I needed any help but this could vary with each visit.

A cafe, deli, grocery and craft beer shop. Selection is big and impressive enough. Not much help. Prices are a bit high and some bottles are sitting in the sun. Slight tweaks would make this awesome, for me it was bitter sweet.

Similar setup to the city center Foodery but much larger with easier to navigate space and more beers to choose from. Selection is top notch: Alesmith, Cigar City, Lost Abbey, Russian River, weird Norwegian and Italian stuff, Stillwater and lots of local stuff. Everything can be bought as singles. But again, the big negative for this store like its brother is the PRICING. No price tags on bottles. And the prices can be high to outrageous. I picked out 3 special beers I like: Stillwater Table Beer 22oz, Grassroots Wachu Saison 12oz, and Cisco Lady of the Woods 750mL. And the price together was $50!!!!! Whaaaaaaaa. Service guy was texting on his phone and generally disinterested. Fine with me.

I found this place to be pretty darn impressive. A really nice selection, of a lot of stuff you can and canít find anywhere around me in NY/NJ. Iím still not sure that I really understand PAís laws, but regardless, this place seemed to make them work in their favor. Beyond the selection, I liked that you could drink their obviously, and we had a rather good time, right Nick? We drank some interesting beers here while we were hanging out, and they seemed rather comfortable with our slightly intoxicated group haggling with them over the giant Allagash bottle and encouraging general drunkenness.

Great selection of beer in a nice part of town. Prices can be high but that seems to be normal for places offering mixed sixers in Pa. They have a seating area where you can drink your beer and eat your sandwich (if you get on form their deli, really tasty stuff). I like this place.

huge awesome selection. But $20 for a 22 of Hopin Frog triple IPA seems really high. Great selection but PRICEY

I was impressed with their selection. Lots of singles in fridges. For me, itís hard to find any new beers...I walked out with a mixed sixer and also a 750ml of Bush de Nuits and some other new bombers! Discount on mix-6íers to boot. Worth a stop if you are in the area for sure!

Nice bottle shop/deli type store. Knowledgeble staff, but biggest down falls include no pricing and over pricing.

When I visited: Late September 2014. What I bought: Timothy Taylor Landlord Pale Ale, BrewDog Libertine Black Ale, Maine Beer Peeper Ale, Sly Fox Route 113 IPA, Ommegang Hop House, Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale, Boulevard Double Wide IPA, Anchor Big Leaf Maple Autumn Red, Founders Devil Dancer, Brooklyn Sorachi Ace, Zywiec Porter, Allagash Saison, Deschutes Jubelale, North Coast Pranqster, Urthel Samaranth, Stillwater A Saison Darkly, and Stone Coffee Milk Stout. What I liked: Clean and well-organized aisles, love the fact that most of the beer is fresh and refrigerated, very impressed with the number of singles available, one of the best selections Iíve come across with an endless range of highly-rated beers from the top beer nations, lots of empty cases available, checkout guy was friendly and explained PAís weird liquor laws to us, prices are reasonable. What I disliked: As with any beer store they have some dated stock, a few of the products were missing tags, clientele is hipster heavy but that didnít really bother us. Would I go back? Yes. This place is a ďmustĒ for beer shopping when in Philly. Overall Rating: 90

A little less cramped than their other location south of here in town. Has a nice selection of beers, though most of the interesting stuff I canít find in D.C. is on the pricey side (the Lost Abbey, Port brewing stuff). But the fact that they have it is something. A lot of the stuff doesnít have prices, which can be annoying. A good place to pick up a few missing top beers though for me.
