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.

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.

Nice location. Situated just across the street from Standard Tap in an up and coming area of North Philly. The ambiance and arrangement of the store is nice and easy for browsing. Great selection; Bells, Port Brewing / Lost Abbey, Jolly Pumpkin, Brew Dog, Hoppiní Frog, Mikkeller. Prices are a bit rough. At least 10-20% mark up in prices. Still, great beer sometimes comes at a great price. Decent place for rare finds, special occasions, and epic tastings. Worth a try.

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

Incredible selection for such a small place. Ambiance is relaxed and the clerk was friendly.Two things i found a bit irritating: 1- The prices! over 7$ for a bomber of Arrogant Bastard..gimme a break. 2-The rebate is only applicable to multiples of six.WTH? I was still Happy to walk out with 12 beers i had not tasted before. Great place, but be ready to pay around 30% more thanmost beer stores.

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!

A great place to not only do your beer shopping, but also get a quality sandwich & enjoy one of your choices during your meal. I went in with a list, & though I did find the inventory list, the clerk on-hand was more than willing to go over it to tell me if they had what I was looking for. In a cool little neighborhood setting & the deli selections are well varied. Be prepared to spend more than you expect; there arenít any prices on the bottles (they are on the inventory list, however), so you get a nice "surprise" at check out. Itís right off of 95, though, so thereís really no reason not to stop. Yet another reason to avoid Turnpike/Parkway hell.

Like a country market store crossed with the after-class high school deli hangout... weird. The service was a little distant but still genial. The selection is massive, pretty much everything from East-West, Europe-Americas: Mikkeller, ~all avail Jolly Pumpkin, ~all Hitachino, BFM, ~all avail Cantillon, Weyerbacher, Dieu du Ciel, De Dolle, Founders... plus the gray market philly stuff from Westvleteren, Lost Abbey, and the like. They donít hit the ultimate high rarities that Caponeís does and I think were a little more expensive, but they cover all the bases. Though Iíd still prefer to go to Monkís or Caponeís as this one felt unoriginal and sterile, this is a must if you are in Philly.

A large selection of bottle with some real hard to find stuff. Beware of the prices, walkout with 9 beers and a 115$ bill.

My God the selection. Fantastic, rare bottles for days. Easily the best selection I’ve seen in the area. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about beer. My only complaint is the price - first, they are difficult to find on the price sheet, and second, when you do find them, they are expensive as fuck. $20.95 for a 750 of Jolly Pumpkin? Damn that’s pricey! If you got some extra dollars to drop, this would be the joint to do it at.
