Serious taproom for serious beer drinkers. Great selection of bottled. On the website is a real time listing of their 40 taps.

I drove from Columbus just for this one beer store and holy muthaí it was well worth it, they are in a league of their own. The bottle selection is the biggest I have ever seen, and if they donít have it itís probably not available anywhere. The guy who runs it is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Iíd give it 130 if I could. Also they have a bar with more beer on tap.

OK, I had to see this place. I havenít been here since the old 6 and save. Small parking lot, but there is parking on the street and in a vacant lot next door. Excellent selection of beers, best prices that I have found thus far in PA. 20 rotating beers on tap. Dave the owner wasnít there when I stopped by, so, I am going to have to make another trip. Worth the visit. I was talking to a customer there who mentioned about weekly Saturday tastings they do on the hard to find beers and hard to get beers in PA. Service was decent, atmosphere is drinking in someoneís basement, which I enjoyed. No smoking inside, and well light place.

This place is the bom! No, Iím not kidden. I thought Vintage Estates was cool but this place meets it and is a tad cooler on the prices, no lie! Even in good old tyrant LCB controlled PA! I donít know how he does it but there were so many beers. Six pack mixed for $10 and bunches of cool beers for a $1! Also, I was pleased to see many good bombers for $4 each. Oh yea, the tap selection is phenominal also! Iím going 100% on this place. My only prob is that itís an hour drive to get there. However, Iím splitting my vintage estage time with this one because they are both an hour away. The help was very knowedgable and what he didnít know he didnít try to BS the BSer! I liked that. They even had some custon beers that were not on the market on tap from a combined belgdian effort! One of kind wew!

Probably best in East Coast for basic beer to rare collections. Great value. $10 6pack match including tax canít be beat.

A great shop. The workers will give you their attention & help you with any suggestions. The feel of the place is like wearing an old favorite t-shirt. Itís a relaxing place to have a brew. Iíve been to several states, seen many bottle shops, & Iím very lucky to live an hr away from this place. There is always something interesting to purchase at a House of 1000 Beers.

I have been shopping at six and save since they were at their old location. The new location has a great addition of a bar with numerous microbrews. I also enjoy being able to buy my favorite beer at a discount as well as trying something new.

Stopped here last week for some beers on the way to Seven Springs for a friendís bachelor party. Scored some rarities like 2010 Founders Nemesis, Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree IPA, and was sad they had the aged sours from Russian River but no Blind Pig or Pliney. Most beers were overpriced but not too bad. A few of the IPAs I bought were on the shelf for too long and were undrinkable, couldíve got more Nemesis if I only knew. Owner was super cool and they have a bar in the back with 30 beers on tap, some pretty good ones for the area. All in all this place is a score and I wish I lived closer cause the PA mountains are more relaxing than Chicago.

Visited March 29, 2013. What an incredible place! Well worth the research and effort to get to New Kensington, where you may well discover beers you never knew existed. I went for my hard to find Augustiner Edelstoff, plus a Shiner Bock from Texas (at $1 a bottle!! yes, it tasted fine!) before relying on the extremely helpful fellow at the register to help me load up on the rest of my Pennsylvaniaís Two Six-Packs Only stash. Great Lakes Alchemy Hour Double IPA, Victory "Hop" Wallop, Stone Ruination IPA were recommended for me, and I decided to finish off with a Brooklyn Pennant Ale í55. Bar area in the back offered food (I think) and a series of awesome looking kegs. Truly outstanding beer store. Very highly recommended.

This is the best beer store in the Pittsburgh area. It offers plenty of single bottles, bombers, but no cases. Also they have 40 taps (sometimes less) which you can order a pint or growler to go. They have the best beer selection in Pittsburgh - including stuff that doesnít even distribute here (Westvleteren, Russian River, Lost Abbey, tons of international stuff, Struise). I donít know how they get it, but itís here, and thereís a special shelf near the register with one offs (I remember Central Waters Peruvian Morning). The only problem is freshness - some of these gems have been sitting around for awhile, so be careful. It is also pricey, because youíre paying for single bottles (and the out-of-market stuff is just more expensive). Anyway, itís a great place but itíll hurt youíll wallet because youíll want to buy everything.
