Stopped in here on a recent trip to the area. Figured we were across the street at Standard Tap, might as well go check this place out as well.
It is actually larger than I was expecting it to be. Vibe was decent, a few people sitting around having a beer and waiting for food. Quality was pretty good, lots of good beer and the food looked good as well, although I didnít try it myself. Service was pretty good. The girl behind the bar knew quite a bit about the beers and even went in the back to check and see if they had some of the things we were looking for.
The best part is definitely the selection. They had a TON of bottles. Everything from RR to locals like Troegs to even some Cascade. I grabbed a bottle of 50/50 Brandy Barrel, the only one I was missing. When I went to check out I was told it was $35....I think I almost had a heart attack when she said it. If I didnít need to to complete my set I would have walked out of there. It seems all of their prices are sky high.
Overall a great, all be it expensive, bottle shop that I will definitely return to when I am in the area.

A great place to find some rarer beers, even some with some age on them. However, they are a bit pricey when compared to other bottle shops that Iíve been to.

A cool little store thatís open on Sundays and allows mixed 6 packs. Helpful people working there. A lot of local beers and others.

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.

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, great, great bottle shop in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philly. The selection is phenomenal. Iím not even going to go into it because theyíve got just about everything thatís distributed to the area. From local beers to out-of-state rarities (Russian River sours, beers cleared from shelves in other areas) to Belgians and lambics to BMC crap, youíll find it all here. I think I had a Laughing Dog Sneaky Pete, an Ithaca Thirteen, and some other great stuff. Iím unhappy to report that I also got iced with a Smirnoff Ice that they unfortunately sell here. We drunkenly haggled with the people working there to sell us a $200 6L of Allagash Triple for $20, but they wouldnít have it. Man, they stick by their prices! Prices are ok to a bit high, but nothing that will kill you. Thereís also a solid food selection for the drunken munchies. Oh, and this place is right next to the Standard Tap so you can hit two spots easily in one trip. If you go to Philly, which by the way has the best distribution of any US city, this is a great place to stock up on some bottles and maybe drink some there. Itís like City Beer Store in San Francisco on steroids.

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

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.
