Very reasonably priced. Much lower priced than bottle shops. Fantastic Great Lakes selection that includes their Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Burning River Pale Ale, Dortmunder Gold, and Eliot Ness.
Purchased a 6-pack of Great Lakes Eliot Ness lager for $9.67. Bocktown charges $19.68 for a 6-pack of Great Lakes Eliot Ness.
Some fine selections included Ayinger, Lindemann's, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, and Great Lakes.
Plenty of macros available. I would like to see the selection expanded to include more microbreweries.

Way too many macro brews here...I mean WAY too many. DO we really need a whole section for A-B and Coors products??? The whole point of this place is high end food products...way too much crap here. Every macro brew has at least 10% of the space...add it up and the craft brews are few and far between.
Nothing real hard to find either...mostly the "main" beers you see at any bar, 6-pack store. They need some variety.
Some of the prices were great (under $4 for a 22 of Sierra Nevage Wet Hop Harvet), but some were outrageous.
Overall, worth checking out...but they do have to tag EVERY beer you buy with a footlong reciept which is annoying.

I am re-reviewing this as it has been a little while since I last stopped and they have really gotten their stuff together. The beer area is probably 2-3 times the foot print as it was the last time I was there. The original L-shaped cooler is still the cornerstone of the area, but they have really branched out into the store and hane numtiple free standing displats and shelving units. The selection has also grown greatly and the prices are good too. Two examples: bomber of Long Trail Coffee Stout $4.99, DFH WWS 7.99.
They really put forth an effort and it shows.
I was looking forward to trying this place out since it is the first "supermarket" in the area that sells beer. The beer section is about 25 feet long and they do have a few off the wall micros. Nothing exceptional, but a few that I have never seen before. The main problem is the price. Most 6 packs are around $12+. I can go to Fat Heads and get cheaper.
With Bocktown only two minutes away I can not justify the markup. Bocktown is more expensive, but has a much wider selection of micros. However, it is a great sign that we are finally going to be able to buy beer at local grocery stores.

Finally!! Pittsburghers can go into a grocery store and buy beer!! Yippee!!
Stopped by here once all the hype of a new "Market District" store died down. If you enter through the café side, you are right in the middle of the beer section. I wasn't expecting much, but wow...I was pleasantly surprised!
They have six packs and four pack to go along one wall. The selection includes most of the popular craft brew as well as a few import favorites. They also have a section dedicated to big bottles that you can buy as singles. They also sell cases, but the selection is pretty limited.
I have seen a few odd-ball 12 oz. bottles for sale...DFH-WWS was the latest. Not sure what kind of deal they have worked out, but this was the first place to sell Troegs NN...and they had it cheaper than the brewery itself!
All in all, a good place for brews. Warning...they stop selling beer at 10pm!

Market District: the first grocery store in south western Pennsylvania to sell alcohol. Hopefully this place will start a trend and other grocery stores will start to sell beer, and hopefully THAT will lead to driving down prices at area bottle shops. We shall see.
Anyway, this is an absolutely massive grocery store with all kinds of prepared food, aged meats and cheeses and of course, singles and six packs of beer that are available to-go or for on premise consumption.
There are about 4 coolers full of beer. For the most part the 12 ounce bottles come in six packs, but the bombers and 750s are sold as singles. The beers/breweries represented include Troegs, Victory, Sam Smith, Dupont, Chimay, Orval, Brooklyn, Voodoo, Rogue, Sierra Nevada, Anchor, Rodenbach, Unibroue, Magic Hat, Ithaca, Sam Adams, Franziskaner, Stone, Bell's, Founders, DogFish Head, Ommegang, Hoppin' Frog, Smuttynose, Great Lakes, lindemans, Moinette and numerous others, but that is what I can remember. For the most part, only a few beers represent each brewery; there are very few full line-ups from breweries.
Something tells me that Market District won't be getting limited releases, but they do have seasonal offerings (I head they will be getting at least 22s of Nugget Nectar). Also, with the amount of foot traffic that comes through this place, I'm pretty sure that freshness is no problem with the beer.
Service is completely non-existant here. There are a few people at a register near-by, but they are far too busy to help, and I would guess that they don't know their beer anyway. I was actually tempted to help people who were looking for beer, but I resisted the urge.
The best part about Market District is that it is much cheaper than other bottle shops in the Pittsburgh area. Prices here are comparable to prices in other, normal states. Overall, market district is not the type of place you would go out of your way to visit, or seek out, but it is a solid place to buy beer at reasonable prices.

This may not be THE place to go if you want individual bottles of craft beer or 6ers but it is definitely the most affordable in the area.
Since I live nearby I have been in this store several times. Unfortunately it seems that if you want 12 oz bottles you have to get a 6 pack or 4 pack, but the larger 22oz bottles and 750s are available for single sale. The selection seems to vary depending on when you go but some beers/breweries that are available are: Ommegang, Dupont, Stone, New Holland, Voodoo, Troegs, Victory, Bear Republic, DFH, Unibroue, Erie, Chimay, Lindemans, Rodenbach, Duvel, Orval, Brooklyn, Founders, Great Lakes, Penn and Sierra Nevada.
Of course, with much of the stock being taken up by BMC there are only a few offerings from each brewery- but its a really good start.

This is the first grocery store in SW PA to sell beer so I decided to visit it today since I had a day off from work. Traffic was not a problem unlike the reports I'd gotten from friends who tried to go here shortly after the store opened.
I entered the Cafe from its side entrance and immediately spotted a floor display with six packs of various winter beers sitting atop cases of said winter beers. There were six packs of Sam Adams Winter Lager, Great Lakes Christmas Ale, Thirsty Dog Twelve Dogs of Christmas and others. To the right was a long cooler housing four and six packs of select beers from the following brewers: Rogue, Stone, Sierra Nevada, Great Lakes, Anchor, Bear Republic, Bells, Smuttynose, Sam Adams, Magic Hat, Unibroue, Dogfish Head, Clipper City, Terrapin, Thirsty Dog, Bar Harbor, Boulder, Harpoon, Great Divide, Lagunitas, Moylans, Duvel, Hooegarden, etc.
Around the corner from this cooler was a cooler containing single large bottles, packs of cans and twelve packs: Brooklyn Local 1, Brooklyn Local 2, all three Chimay styles, Ommegang Three Philosophers, Ommegang Hennepin, Ommegang, Orval, Blue Moon Grand Cru, Sam Smith, Stone IPA, New Holland Dragon's Milk, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Southern Tier Unearthly, Green Flash, Voodoo, Red Stripe, Guinness, Murphy's Stout, Boddingtons, Young's Double Chocolate Stout, Belhaven, Tetley, Fosters. Twelve packs of Sam Adams, Great Lakes, Magic Hat, Brooklyn, Troegs and Southern Tier were present.
All in all the prices were good for PA and the selection, well not as good as our local bottle shops, was still decent. It's nice to see a PA beer store with prices on all beers.
I ended up buying a six pack of Great Lakes Christmas Ale ($12.99 + 7% drink tax) and a six pack of Sierra Nevada Kellerweis ($10.49 + 7% tax). I would have bought a six pack of Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale as well, but will check that out on a future visit.
Note that I had to show the cashier my PA driver's license when I paid for my purchases. She affixed a Paid Sticker and a cash register receipt to each of my six packs after I paid for the beers.
Update (11-26-2010): I returned here about one year later and have to report that the beer selection has grown since a year ago. There are more beers located outside of the coolers and sprinkled throughout the cafe area. It was fun to trying to locate aal the beer displays. I spotted lots of gift packs: Sam Smith, Unibroue, Van Steenberge. The Belgian Trappist brewers were well represented: Orval, Rochefort, Westmalle, Chimay. Someone at the Market District has done their research on beers. Nice to know that this cafe is only 8.5 miles from my house.

So far beer from the grocery store in the Burgh is on the up and up. Recent news of this location carrying beer has created license applications throughout the area for a similar set up, is this the beginning of the end for the six pack shop model? Regardless this is convenient and so far it's the best selection I've ever seen at a grocery store thus far except for a certain Piggly Wiggly in Myrtle Beach, SC. I got SN Harvest for 3.49 a 24 oz, Hennepin 750 for 7 bucks or so, and Brooklyn Local for 10 bucks. Four packs and sixers vary in pricing with 7 to 14 dollars depending on what your getting into. Weird PA rules but at least you can drink 2 beers while eating food at this massive theme park for foodies. Service so far has been straight forward checkout style scan your groceries with a smile service. I'm sure a beer personality is on the way to help shoppers figure out what they should try.
