I walked in and was not even greeted (you walk right by the counter upon entering) They do have a rather good selection including 5 of the 6 Trappist brews, but they are extremely over priced. I was there for about 45 minutes walking back and forth between coolers and back room and nobody offered me assistance. After driving two hours to check it out and pick up a few hard to finds (with the exception of the Trappist and the DFH world wide they didnt have anything i couldnt get 5 minutes from my house), I was extremely disappointed. If you Are half way between pittsburgh and youngstown drive to Vintage beer and wine or the Gulf station on 224. They are half the Price and have just as good selection!!!! Plus they will talk to you =)

The place to go to try out different beers. They have a huge cooler full of micros and imports as well as a backroom with a huge assortment of beers that arenít easy to find anywhere. Hot dogs and fries are good and they have other food, but Iím mainly there to try out a few bottles of good brew.
Theyíve expanded into the next cuilding as of January 2006, so thereís much more seating available now and big screen TVs.

Decent atmosphere and seating has really improved since their expansion a few years ago. The food is fairly simplistic but solid and inexpensive.. Incredible beer selection for take out - the best in Pittsburgh. About 20 drafts some of which get fairly exotic. Draft prices are decent but the bottle shop prices are rather high - especially for the imports. The staff is pretty knowledgeable and the service is slighlty above average.

Best beer selection in Pittsburgh. Many micors available in bottles. Also a small bar/hotdog restaurant. Food is very Yinzer.

Five or six taps with no macros--usually one is a Belgian. Not really a bar, but more a sandwich shop. A great selection of bottles in their beer attic--over 800 and striving for 1000. A must stop for any serious beer fan when in the 'burgh. The only thing bad that I can say is it is not handicapped friendly. You have no problem getting in, but it is too narrow for a wheelchair or walker once inside.

Thank you God! A singles shop in PA that has more than St. Pauli Girl. True backroom stock--wooden shelves stuffed with beer. They dont have everything, but they do try. Staff was terrific--let me browse as long as I liked, and even rummaged around in the back to find the last bottle of Ommegang for me. Sweet place.

So far my favorite beer store. This seemingly dingy hole-in-the-wall is only a charade - or is that facade? Anyway, food is hot dogz and fries, but on tap are alway 5-6 good beers. In the back are shelves and shelves of bottled beer. Over 800 beers (no macros) from around the world, including a nice selection of Belgians. Prices are a bit high, but then again - it's Pennsylvania. Worth the trip if you're in the 'Burgh.
