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

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!

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.
