An excellent beer store/ bottle shop/ bar. The sit down bar is in the back of the building, and doesnít have a lot of room. The fact that little if any money is spent on decorating actually increases the ambiance for a real beerfan because it keeps the emphasis on the brews.
Staff are all knowledgeable as are the regulars. On my second visit, people greeted me by name. Just about anyone in the place is willing to discuss beer.
Prices are reasonable for the huge bottle selection, and there are always specials on select growlerfills.

It was only several years ago when the notion of sampling dozens of craft brews would mean a 30 to 90 minute trip to a suburban or outskirts of Pittsburgh store. Wow have things changed. I have traveled to Americaís top-rated beer store, Vintage Estate in Ohio and Iíve made frequent trips to House of a 1000 Beers (formerly Six and Save), and let me tell you hands down, I feel that House of 1000 Beers has them beat for 1) highly sought after beers, particularly the highest rated Belgiums and 2) tap beers. This place is awesome in this sense. They may not have the location, ambiance, and food of some other places, but when it comes to beer and strictly beer, this place is one of the best in the Pittsburgh area and rivals Vintage Estate. Keep up the good work guys, and keep the highly rated beers coming! If itís a B+ or higher, not to mention in the A to A+ range, we want it.

Fantastic selection, Good prices, single bottles mix n match. Also has a nice selection of draft beers on tap. Good choice of Belgiums. Offers Growlers to go. Not much of an atmosphere. Update 2012: Still get to this place alot because you cant beat the selection. But bottles have gotten more expensive. Pricing could be better.

Tucked away in New Ken, this is the closest place to home with a solid selection for the Pittsburgh Market, including some rarities like HotD, 3Fonteinen, Cantillon and Ottoís. Fantastic service, Dave (Owner), Scott (Bar Manager) both know their beer and it shows. Enjoyed geeking out. Prices are great, plus, as stated, no Onorato tax. Will definitely make this a regular stop.

Ambiance is a basic bottle shop, nice layout allowing it to be easy to find beers you are looking for. Service is good, with staff always asking if you need help finding anything. Selection is very good, having some things that most places in Pgh wouldnt but may also not be able to find things that you would expect them to have. Value is unbeatable of anywhere in Pgh, prices are very low and it is also located out of allegheny county so you can avoid the drink tax. Overall a very good selection at awesome prices.

Situated in Industrial burn-out New Ken, this is like Caponeís in Philly as its not much to look at from the inside or out. Standard store vibe, shelves and coolers. Then you find the shelves, which are organized a bit oddly but easy enough. Good selection for Pgh, similar to Dís but with a few rarities from HotD, Girardin, Cantillon that canít be found elsewhere in Pgh. The price is what makes this worth the stop, though their $10 mix-6ers are only for the most easily obtained micros and some borderline macros. If it wasnít for Vintage Estate, this would be a regular stop. As is, Iíll stop by again, but mainly for the price.

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.

Been buying from them for about a year or so, things just keep getting better, continual improvements to their great selection, both bottles and tap, great prices, a good find so close to home, worth the trip.

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 big thanks to Naka for letting me know about this place. Finally got to it in early summer on a Saturday. I had ambitions of stopping here and then heading further in to Pittsburgh, but once I got here and spent a good 45 minutes pouring over the selections, followed by a few pints of excellent draught IPAs ... well, it was time to head home again.
Great staff! Friendly, helpful, and know their beer. The guy running it that day opened up a bottle of Karmeliet Tripel for everyone to sample for free at the bar, because they were getting a sixtel of it the next week. Just a great place to stop and stock up. Nice Belgian selection and tons of micros and imports. Wonderful draught selection, too.
