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.

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.
