So, after reading the reviews on BA i decided to take a drive to center city today. (something i usually try to avoid at all costs)
Parking in the city blows. I drove around for 10 minutes trying to find a spot.
I walked a few blocks until i came to the corner of 10th and pine when i saw the little foodery shop on the corner.
Let me just say, this place is small. It is really cramped inside. I was fine for a while cause no one else was looking at the beers. Then another guy came in and we kept bumping into each other.
They have a really nice selection and i was suprised that the prices weren't as outrageous as i thought. I bought a really nice mixed sixer for about $20.
As far as service. I barely got a response when i walked in and said hello. No one said a single word to me the whole time i was in the place.
Overall the place is decent. Nice selection of singles. I can't see myself frequenting the foodery as its just too much of a pain in the ass to fight traffic and try to find parking.

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.
