When my wife and walked up to this, I started to wonder if everything I had heard about this place was wrong. Quite frankly, it looks pretty junky. From the outside, it looks like one of those inner-city corner stores where you expect to see homeless people buying Mad Dog or something. The inside doesn't really look much better except for the HUGE selection of beer that takes up most of the store and every last bit of it in singles at decent prices. The selection here is amazing and very varied. I had planned on not buying much here, but after browsing and my wife's permission bought about 15 beers I had not had before despite knowing I didn't need to. I left wishing I could have bought more.

My daughter moved into an apartment a block away. After parking the car and walking back to the apt, we noticed a small corner store with lighted beer signs in the window. Intrigued, we walked in and, behold, a cramped area with a nice selection of single beers grouped into different countries. It was a pleasant surprise and have been back a number of times and been to the Northern Liberties location also which has a bigger selection.

Stopped in here a few days ago while in the area for an event. Figured it was only a few blocks away, might as well check it out.
Atmosphere was just like others have mentioned, it is pretty much a cross between a corner bodega and a bottle shop. It is really cramped and you have to walk around numerous objects to get anywhere. Quality was ok, nothing amazing, some of the bottles looked pretty old. Service was pretty good, I had two different people ask if I needed any help. Selection was decent for the size of the space but nothing amazing. Only one or two things I would have gotten had the prices been reasonable, which they certainly were not.
Overall an ok bottle shop in the heart of the city. If I lived in the area I might check it out every now and then to see what they have but I doubt I will return.

The foodery is a conveience store turned little beer store. Cramped. Very cramped couldn't move in there if your their with one or more customers. Beer selection is ok but couldn't get any better since its so small. Theres no parking what so ever, I just went when I had my City vehicle and double parked ( the perks of driving a City of Philadelphia Vehicle.) It's a bit pricey, rather go to Craft beer outlet in NE Philly. Probably will never go here again. Just went a couple of times since I worked in South Philly but wont be heading back.
