Excellent selection! The price list sometimes a little hard to navigate and not all the beers are listed. The staff is VERY knowledgeable and willing to help. There is a discount applied to each bottle when purchasing as part of a 6-pack, so come with more than a few beers to try. There is a hand-written sign that says they have over 875 beers, and I believe it. They even have Pabst Light in pounders. I donít want it, but they have it! There are also occasional tastings I was pleasantly surprised to see a Sly Fox Tasting sign that brought me right into the store.

This Foodery is way better than the original location - cleaner, more spacious, better selection. Plenty of bottles of Lost Abbey, Mikkeller, Hoppin Frog, Pizza Port, etc - stuff you donít find just anywhere. Iíve never seen Lost Abbey at the original Foodery which is too bad since I live nearby.

This has the largest selection of singles anywhere in Philadelphia. There is street parking available on 2nd street right across from the store. It is much cleaner and has a larger selection than the original.

Great shop. The clerk behind the counter was awesome. She checked everything I asked for without a sign of inconvenience. The shop gets in specialty stuff and has a descent selection. The prices are fair too. I will go back to this place the next time I am in town.

I visited The 2nd St. Foodery while in Philly to pick up some beers I cannot get in GA.... as you walk in, they have many coolers stocked full of singles (priced at a premium due to the PA Case Law).... saw so many wonderful beers it took me forever to pick which ones to put in my suitcase for the trip back. Ended up picking up some Rogue 10k, Stone 11th Ann., Hoppin Frog BORIS, Mikkeller Black Hole and Flying Fish Impy Porter... must visit in Philly for hard to find beer.

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

If there is some esoteric beer you are looking for in Philly, the first retail establishment that comes to mind to try in Philly is the Foodery. The selection is amazing. The staff is also a plus, very knowledgeable and willing to give you all the time you need unless they are busy. Everything is incredibly well ordered in case after case lining the walls. That is the good side. There IS another side. The prices are outrageous. I dare you to put together a mixed six for anything approaching reasonable. And nothing is marked, causing you to have bother the staff repeatedly. For these reasons, this is my place of last resort. If I can find it ANYWHERE else, it is almost guaranteed to be more reasonable.

Awesome place. Parking is terrible! Deli Style place. Wish I had time for a sandwich. Huge selection. Staff is very friendly. Found a lot of stuff I canít normally get at home. Also found some rare beers...Peche Mortel.
