This is a companion to the store on 10th street in Philadephia. Very clean with a vast selection of singles. Every beer is listed on a computer print out with the price as a single as well as 6 pack and case. The staff is very knowlegdeable and helpful. About 500 hundred to choose from. Many seasonals and hard to finds. They have a deli with sandwiches that I am told are very good. I did not try any on this visit. About the only drawback is the prices. They seem high but this is coming from a Jersey guy where singles are a rarety. The big plus is that it is right next to The Standard Tap which always has a large selection of local brews on tap. If you go to one, you have to try the other.

A lot nicer and further away than the original foodery. Surprisingly easy to get to though via the blue line. Iíd say the selection is about twice the size as the other foodery. Tons of bombers and 750s. Actually has tables inside and a full-time person behind the deli counter making food. I think there were like 7 coolers full of beer. A lot of european beers. domestics they had that other foodery didnít include russian river, middle ages, and some others i canít remember.

I understand that this is the ísecondí store. Iíve never been to the first. Iím coming from out of town and itís much easier to park in this area (free parking all around). Iíd like to thank ratebeer and all of the raters who clued me in to this place. The finest selection of bottles Iíve ever seen. And a computer where you can search out all the information for the beers. If you go, youíll see bottles you never thought you could get in Pennsylvania. And if you see something ultra-rare, donít be too surprised. But also donít wait until the next time to buy it, because the turnover is unimaginable, and it will be sold out. (I missed a couple of good beers by doing this) The prices are a different matter. They tend to vary greatly, but they do charge more for the hard to get stuff.

Itís excellent to have a place like this in town, and to see theyíre doing well enough to open another location. Their new location in northern liberties, is appropriately "new" and ritzy" feeling compared to the cramped, dingy feel of their downtown store. Given the much greater amount of space, though, when it came to the selection, I felt like I was looking at almost the same beers. Perhaps there 1 in 10 was a beer I hadnít seen at the othe rlocation, but overall itís just a nicer transplant of the other store and doesnít use its potential to please a true beer geek as well as it could. However, I can see theyíre creating all kinds of new sub-beer geeks. People walk in there and seem totally floored and excited, which can only be good for the future of beer in Philly. So while it doesnít do a whole lot extra for me over their other (essential) location, itís an important development. If I were coming out of town this would be the one to go to, for slightly more selection, a nicer ambiance, and ease of getting to it by car.
