This is the best place in Pittsburgh for selection. If it was closer I would be in a lot of trouble. The beers are everywhere and dare I say slightly unorganized, but I like it. You never know what gem you are going to find in there. I have never gotten anything at the bar, but everytime I am there it seems packed, so that must be a good thing. The owner is really helpful as well.
Prices are about the best that I have seen in Pittsburgh. Some of the rarer items are pricey, but that goes without saying. Their is a bargain shelf that I have pulled some pretty good beers from before too.
My only complaint is that there are some bottles that are old/past their prime. Just make sure to check them.

House of 1,000 Beers really is the premier craft beer destination in the Pittsburgh area.
The owner is a great and pleasant guy. He's always warm and inviting, a pleasure to talk to and I know he works very hard to make sure his store is providing beers that you simply cannot and will not find anywhere else in the region. The problem is that, due to the lengths he has to go through, some of the prices are very high.
Just a couple of examples:
Cascade Kriek Cherry: Retails for $20 on their website, selling here for $50. Yes, fifty dollars.
Goose Island Madame Rose: $50
Deschutes Mirror, Mirror: Retails for $17, selling for $32
Lost Abbey Angels Share: $25 (for a 375mil bottle)
Goose Island Lolita: $30 (selling online for $17)
I absolutely appreciate and respect their desire to provide very hard/sometimes impossible to find product to their patrons, but these prices are a little out of control.
Their prices for normal brews that we're in the distro area for are fine and pretty much in line with everyone else. The prices on the out of distro area stuff tend to get inflated, but they're also offering a premium service that you can't get anywhere else in the area.
Other than the prices, I have no complaints. The service and staff are always amazing and the selection is almost always stellar. If anything, the only other gripe would be the location. New Kensington is a bit of a hike from Pittsburgh and there's absolutely no other reason to visit the town other than this store.
