I cant go into this place and leave empty handed. The selection is top notch and you can usually count on them to get the rare stuff in. I make it a habit of stopping by once a week after work.

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.

Amazing selection of beers. Now down to 24 taps from 40 and the beer menu online is 100% up to date. Ton of bottles and lots of rare ones at that. Very good prices on the drafts. Minimal atmosphere but finally serving food - and at least the sliders are pretty tasty. Service is basic but acceptable. A great beer destination!

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.

All I can say is WOW! I thought Vintage Estate was great, but this place his it beat hands down. Not for the amount of beers, but the selection. They have stuff you canít get anywhere else in PA or OH (you go see for yourself) and the bar manager was fantastic. When I was there we were the only ones in there and this guy actually knows his stuff. Too often you go to places like this and the employees have little to no knowledge of what they are selling. He pointed out all the rarities and most sought after stuff to me and engaged in some beer talk. Prices rival our OH neighbors. Will be a weekly visit

Perhaps the best kept secret beer bar in the Pittsburgh area. The place is pretty non-descript from the outside, and resides in a gritty former industrial neighborhood. Inside, it is sort of half warehouse, and have dive bar; the big difference being the ridiculous selection of beers. The classic move is to choose six beers from their sizable selection to create a $10 six-pack. More recently, they have vastly expanded their selection of harder-to-find Belgians, and more obscure craft beers, many of which I havenít seen anywhere in western PA but there. There is also a small and gritty bar on the other side of the building. The tap selection is usually nothing short of amazing. Iíve seen St. Bernardus 12 and Wild Devil on tap. The prices for the beers are also very very reasonable; again, some of the best in the Pittsburgh metro area. I would rate this ahead of 3 Sons, as the prices outweight the latterís small advantage in selection. Worth visiting, for sure. Upon a recent return visit, I noticed that the establishment had vastly expanded their selection, on top of what was already extremely impressive. Lost Abbey, Russian River, Hair of the Dog, New Glarus. Now easily the best bottle shop in western Pennsylvania.

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 drove here just for this one beer store and it was well worth it. The bottle selection is the biggest I have ever seen, and the guy who runs it is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Iíd give it 120 if I could. Also they have a bar with more stuff on tap.

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

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.
