D's is a must visit for beer lovers in Pittsburgh. They stock 900+ beers, and there beer cave alone is worth the trip. But while your there, you'd be doing yourself a grave injustice not to try a Chicago dog with a chili cheese fries - trust me, a small basket will be plenty! They have reasonable prices on their beers, up to 18 drafts that rotate regularly, and allow you to mix and match 6 packs to go from the beer cave, at a discounted price of the single bottles. Thy recently doubled in size, and the new room has a bunch of great art by a local artist, including a huge mural of the ultimate pub in heaven [with a tons of famous people throughout history for you to try to identify]. In the summer, they open the garage doors for a nice open air cafe feel. A big improvement over the originally very crowded space. They have also just expanded their menu to include pizza's and sandwiches - the spinach pizza we had was quite good, although it would have been better with feta cheese instead of ricotta.

This place falsely advertises as a six-pack store when it is not. IT IS A SINGLES STORE!!!!! It's owners are clearly interested in selling single bottles to greedily garnish the markup they can demand on singles. Yes, they have a large selection of beers, but who wants to pay an average of $3.50 per bottle? IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!! One six-pack I had to build of Lagunitas Little Sumpin' cost me more than $2 than I've paid at multiple other locations! IT SHOULD BE $2 LESS AS I HAD TO SUPPLY THE LABOR TO BUILD IT!!! Another six I built cost me over $18 for beers I later found near my town selling for six prices at around $11. The term HIGHWAY ROBBERY clearly fits here as when one travels to far off places one likes to acquire beers not found in his hometown.

The selection is extensive, but look carefully at the bottle dates. Stuff like Troegs Perpetual and Head Hunter has always been fresh, but the more exotic stuff, like Firestone Walker Double Jack, can be more than a year old. For the most part I think the prices are reasonable. The person below that said there is a 10% six pack discount is incorrect, the discount is $1 off all to go bottles. Standard stuff like Sierra Nevada and Stone is $3/bottle, so a good mix and match 6-pack can be $12. There are some egregious prices, like $39.95 for Older Viscosity and $14 for Wulver, but thankfully it doesn't appear that people are buying those. There are probably 20 draft lines and they are usually solid, but not overly exciting. The food is hotdogs, pizza and a few sandwiches and other miscellaneous items. It's not high quality stuff, but it's sufficient as long as you don't go in expecting a gourmet meal. Overall, I wish there were better options in the area but I spend plenty of time here.

Also, upstairs at The Loft there is a great happy hour with half-priced drafts from 6-8, which is the latest happy hour I've seen. The draft list is different and less extensive up there, but can sometimes have some really good stuff.

Stopped by D's after hearing they had one of the best selections of bottles in Pittsburgh. Didn't try the food. Headed straight through the people sitting at their tables to get to the Beer Cave.

Cave is a good name for it. Just like in a real cave, there was no cell phone reception in the Beer Cave. That was a problem for me because being from out of town, I was not familiar with many of the beers they had on the shelves, and I wanted to look up the ratings. Had to walk back outside!

I was looking for some specific beers, but there was no one in the Cave to help me, so I was left to my own devices. Beer is divided by continent, essentially. One wall is for PA beers, appropriately. They had a small selection called Seasonals that had some interesting choices. Saw some Lost Abbey and Port Brewing. I don't believe those breweries distribute to PA.

The prices are ridiculously high, even when you count the 10% six pack discount. Most PA cans and bottles I saw were around $3 per bottle. Full Pint Rye Rebellion was $5 for one 12oz bottle. Maybe I'm not familiar with the Pennsylvania beer selling rules, but I was thrown by the high prices.

Bottom line: Selection is average from my experience (maybe for Pittsburgh it's great?). Prices are shockingly high. I will keep looking for a good bottle shop in Pittsburgh.

The first place I fell in love with when I was in the process of moving to the area. I find their draft prices a bit high but the awesome selection of 1000 different bottles in the back cooler makes it much more affordable. The bottles are self-serve and you just bring your selection back to your seat and the staff opens it for you.

The food is okay. But it could be way better.

Although a portion of the staff are annoying hipster-types with zero personality, there are more mature people there too who go above and beyond the call of duty. This more than makes up for those other sorry-asses. If I lived nearby I would be at D's a minimum of two days a week.
