quality: 4 | service: 5 | selection: 5 | $$$
I probably shouldn't mention the service, but they were 5/5 in my one visit as a tourist. The place is tiny, and that's my only complaint. For location, the price may be reasonble, but overall a bit pricey.
Quality&Selection: almost everything is represented. From a my Boston-centric point of view, this was like being a kid in a candy store. Probably every local brewery we can't get in Boston is here, in spades. You can buy singles, in fact they are only set up to sell singles! Great for a tourist desiring a sample pack. Nugget Nectar and other goodies were well stocked.
Well worth the trek and don't look for it until your actually on the corner. It's fairly unassuming.

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.
