4.28/5  rDev -2.3%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | $$

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.

This is hands down my favorite place for grabbing craft beer in the Pittsburgh area. The staff and owner are great! They are very knowledgeable about beer, friendly, and always giving suggestions on new beers to try. The food is great too! I had wings and some sliders, both tasted fantastic! The selection of beer is good too, they have 20 rotating taps and also they have refrigerators that are categorized as 90 point selection, they have a belgian section, and you can mix and match six packs to go! They occasionally get some rare beers in, like Founder's KBS, but apparently that sold out in like 5 minutes. Definitely take a trip down to House of 1000 beers, you will not be disappointed!

I've been here a few times, I enjoy it. The staff and owner are very nice and knowledgeable. They have a huge cooler section and shelf beers. You will pay a little more for that "special" find but I don't mind. some of the offerings are way too high but I don't go for those, they wanted like 30+ for a Bruery White Oak. I would never pay that but some might. They have a lot of beers on tap. They also have great beer events. I would recommend going its a nice little hole in the wall bar. Also the do serve the beer in the right glasses!!!

Went here based on the ratings on BA and was extremely disappointed.

Firstly, this place is very much a hole-in-the-wall type store and the staff was friendly and helpful, so I will give them credit for that. That is where the positivity ends though.

The selection was pretty good but almost anything that was interesting was SIGNIFICANTLY overpriced. It seemed as though the cheapest bomber in the place was $15 and they went WAY up from there. I generally don't care about a couple of dollars here and there when I buy beer, but the prices here were so high that I only bought about 5 bottles where I would have normally bought about 9 or 10 based on the selection. An example would be bottles of Alamanc Barrel Noir for $18 and Alamanac Fresh Hop Cluster for $19. I can order these beers on line with shipping costs for much cheaper than that. And that was just the beginning. This seemed to be a place that priced their more interesting beer intentionally high thinking that someone would eventually buy it at that price.

The other negative about this place for an out-of-towner is the location. This seems close enough to Pittsburgh when you map it on line but it is further than it looks and it is not the most pleasant of drives to get here. For how out of the way it is and the prices I would NEVER go here again.

It was also VERY warm in this store and I think they should invest in air conditioning to save the beer that is sitting on the shelves as most beer was not refrigerated.
