Walked two miles in the 2005 East Coast blizzard to get there from my hotel. Living in the Denver, CO area has spoiled me - there is no shortage of micro beer stores at home.
So I walked a couple miles, froze my butt off and nearly turned around to walk back when I saw the storefront. It looked like a corner store that sells generic potato chips, beef jerky and cheap smokes. I really wanted a good beer though, so I walked through the door... and into beer wonderland!
This place has an incredible selection of beer! I saw some brews from my hometown (Great Divide brewery, Avery, etc...) and they have an entire cooler dedicated to Belgians, many which I've never heard of. I picked up as many Victory and Magic Hats that I could take back on the flight. Next time I'm in the area, this will be a must stop!

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.
