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.

Pretty far out from the city, sort of in a bad area and the parking isnít great. Bar area is pretty cool with plenty of tap selections. Bottle selection is nothing short of insane. Everywhere you look there seems to be something that you didnít think could be had in the area. Everyone I encountered was incredibly friendly and helpful. Prices are a little high but I donít mind paying a premium for stuff I canít find elsewhere. Didnít get a chance to try the food. This place is a must see if youíre anywhere in the area.

Dedicated parking, which should not be a problem. Going through the middle door where the register there is a corner of bottles on the left. The rest is to the right through a narrow hallway which has coolers on both sides which opens up to a good size room with beer on shelves in the back, the bar is in the front of that room. The place is sort of a dive. I had a guy that tried to help me almost the whole time. They get some rare stuff on draft and bottle from time to time. If they have a 1000 different labels I would think they are not much above that. I was particularly looking for local wheat beers, which they had only one. Bottles are expensive, but welcome to Pennsylvania. I bought four bottles, one local and three fairly rare beers. Website is not real specific on what bottles they carry. Website does seem to be real time of drafts. It is a good ways north from Pittsburgh, so I would have to go for specific bottles.

This is the place to go to find the stuff you CANíT find. Seriously. They get Heady Topper, Russian River and Lost Abby.

Itís not as big a place as I thought it was going to be, but at last they have their own parking lot. Vibe was dive bar meets used book store. I liked that most of what they offer, and they probably have 650-700 bottles, they had a solid pick 6 for a tenner section that has a lot of local craft stuff. Most of the bees they offer are a bit more expensive then youíd find in other states. They also had a few bottles from brewers like Crooked stave and Epic and prairie artisan and you will pay dearly for them. They also have a bar with 30-35 crafts on draft. Itís a pretty good store by PA standards and probably worth the trip if youíre looking for la rarity or two. .

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.

Bar/bottle shop. Excellent draft selection, and I was able to hang a bit with the owner at the bar, and he was quite nice. Other than that, the customer service sucked. I was browsing bottles half an hour and no one said a word to me and the cashier was a little surly when I checked out. Good beer selection with some rarities. The prices are high, but they also have a large selection of singles you can get for 9.95 a six pack. Small parking lot. Overall, glad I made the drive to come out here.

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.

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