I don't know why, but I feel like the selection at this Giant Eagle is significantly greater than it was when they first started selling beer. There is a ton of stuff available now, and a lot of it is quite unique and stuff I haven't seen in the other more indy spots around the 'Burgh. The greatest detractor is the service. I saw a Troegs Scratch tap handle once and asked if it was the recent IPA. The girl, and believe me, she was a girl, replied, "I think it's the...nut...brown......ale." Awkward.
Even though the service is crap, I still always pop in to see what might be going on.

Having stopped in around Pittsburgh for a long errand, this was the nearest place for me to check out in time alotted.
It is much like a Whole Foods chain, but the beer area is brightly lit and well displayed and tidy. Sections are well shown, bombers, mix a six (although those sections are very small). Others are labelled local and foreign to other 'craft' beer.
Selection though if you are from the area is a bit ordinary, but if you are from out of the town its a good place for Voodoo and Fat Head's beers. Staff also was knowledgeable about the products, they could answer my questions without any problems or acting confused.
Crazy idiotc laws dont help so its only 192 oz. of beer per person per purchase. Unless you want to walk out to your car and come back.. again.
There are growler fills here and also some offerings on tap as well.

Stopped in today while grocery shopping. They finally had the taps set up, so I looked around for a bit. No prices listed anywhere that I could see.
I asked for a price list, and the cashier provided me with their sheet, which was sadly incomplete. Several of the beers on tap weren't listed, and the cashier wasn't sure how they would get rung up at all.
Decent selection overall. Abput 12 taps, though I didn't count. Racer 5, Southern Tier Old Man Winter, two from local brewery Draai Laag, and others I can't remember.
Bad news: the pricing. The cheapest on the sheet was the ST Old Man at $16 for a growler fill. Considering you can get a 6pack for less than that, I was not impressed.
Racer 5 was about $25 for a growler fill. I like R5 and all, but that's just extreme -- works out to $4.50/12oz? No thanks.
