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.

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.

Ambiance is all about the beer. Huge selection and well informed . attentive service and friendly enough. Rare types and samples available. Going to add food.

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.

Canít believe there isnít more buzz around this one. Selection isnít quite as robust as 3 Sons or Dís in Swissvale, but probably right behind those two. Organization is great. Ambiance is hard to rate because this is set up more to be a takeout place, thereís not much in the way of it, but you canít fault the place. Prices are very very good, especially in this area. Overall yet another beer store I wish was a lot closer to my home. Maybe not worth the extra half hour from Swissvale, but certainly not worth passing up if you are going up the turnpike.

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. .

I stopped in here to check out the rarities, they had Russian River but it was expensive, when I saw the prices, I was in shock... I decided not buy any Russian River and spend my money on other rare beers I cannot get in my state. This store has a lot to choose from and it took a few minutes to look the shelves over, the guy behind the counter was helpful and directed me to the beers I was looking for, the prices at this place are higher than what Vintage Estate charges for the same beers but this place has some beers I do not see at VE and I will stop in again to check out other rarities and maybe buy one bottle of RR to see if it is worth it :)

Amazing selection of beers. 40 taps with lots of obscure stuff 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 and almost no food. Service is basic but acceptable. A great beer destination!

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.
