The long awaited Corner Foodery is finally opening its doors on the morning of Thursday, February 7th at 1710-12 Sansom Street. The collaboration brings together Tony Rim (The Corner, Raw), The Corner chef John Taus and the Foodery’s vast beer selection.
This afternoon we spotted workers stocking the beer shelves and arranging glassware. Like the other Foodery locations, Corner Foodery will have row upon row of beer by the bottle. Unlike the Corner, this location will not be on a corner. Expect charcuterie and sandwiches to dominate the food side of things. The space also features extensive seating, fun video-game inspired paintings and a very welcoming vibe. We could totally see a Foobooz satellite office sprouting at one of the tables.
And a prediction, this becomes the most confused name since
Whiskey Village Village Whiskey.
1710-12 Sansom Street

Beer and Thai, what a lovely combination. An even better combination if it’s paired by two of the best bottle shops in town. On Wednesday, January 30th, Circles Thai is joining forces with The Bottle Shop in South Philly, and The Foodery in Northern Liberties for a 5-course 5-Beer Dinner, each course garnering its own respective bottle.
Tickets are $50 a head, and $45 for groups of four or more. There will be two seatings, one at 6pm and the second at 8pm, and tickets can be purchased online through the below links:

Tucked inside HughE Dillon’s roundup of Feastival is this nugget:
Tony [Rim] are just about a month away from opening their new project, the Corner Foodery at 1710 Sansom Street. They’ll carry over 800 gourmet beers from around the country and serve simple sandwiches with cured meats by Corner chef John Taus.
This collaboration was first mentioned back in May of 2007 but no one has been talking about it since. We’re intrigued to say the least and imagine our lunch hours will soon be taken up by staring at the rows of beers wooing us from their coolers.

- Ridge Avenue will be the site of a “Super” Foodery with 9,000 square feet of space.

The Foodery hasn’t always been a beer nerd’s paradise. In fact in its early days we knew it as a dependable spot to get Coors Light underage. But now both locations are all about having a great selection of great beers.
