So Im onboard with the majority of the reviews on this place. This place does have a great selection and the beers are grouped quite well. There didnt seem to be anything super rare but you can expect many of the beer enthusiast favorites. It is real tight quarters in there and that was pretty annoying bumping shoulders. There is a pricing book there but many of the beers werent listed so I just grabbed what I wanted and hoped for the best. I made two six packs and grabbed a soda and a Celebrator glass. Man I wanted to dunk my crotch in a vat of scolding hot soup when i saw the total price. Granted I didn't price first, and I certainly could have declined the purchase but I went with it. I thoroughly enjoyed what I purchased without a doubt, but its true, this place is super expensive and it hurt my soul a little.

This Foodery is a little more limited in terms of selection compared to the Foodery at Northern Liberties due to their limited store space, but they pack or at least try to pack as much of a punch into the shop as they can.
Although the store front is almost hallf the size of Nor Libs', the Washington Square location seems to get all the same seasonal/rare imports that the other Fooderies get as well. (case in point: I bought a four-pack of Goose Isand Bourbon County Stout here, as well as the last bottle of Bourbon County Coffee Stout)
Don't buy food here as the groceries/food is a front for laundering beer (Due to, I'm assuming, the oh-so-strange Philadelphia alcohol laws). If you're looking for good beer and are too lazy/scared to take the Market-Frankford line to Girard, then the Washington Square Foodery is for you.
