Being a transplant to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania I have always been vexed by the bizzare set of beer and alcohol laws here. Simply being able to buy beer while shopping for groceries is akin to obtaining black tar heroin.
Thank you to Giant Eagle Market District for giving me a taste of the free world by being able to buy a sixer of Oberon with my eggs, meat, etc.
The selection is very good and the pricing is less than six-pack shops. Good mix of Euro brews (Belgian and German) and American Micros.
Still feels somewhat odd having to pay before leaving the department to go into the rest of the store, but thats a concession I am willing to make for the convience of buying at the store.

Decent beer selection for Western PA grocery store. Most every BMC product you could want. Seasonal micros included a good supply of Bells Oberon, some SN, Great Lakes, Troegs, Victory. I bought a bomber of Church Brew works Quadzilla and a bomber of Sly Fox raspberry, and a six pack of 21 Ammendant Hell or High Watermelon came to about $30. You can only purchase 190 ounces or less, and have 2 beers onsight. Plenty of prepared foods to be enjoyed also. Overall seems like a positive thing to see some good beer in a PA grocery store.

This is one of my local supermarkets I like to visit here about once a month.
I like to drink local and seasonal beers and this place has them all and a few new things to try when I'm thirsty for a change.
Prices are better than the bars take out which is about all we had till the Giant pulled a few strings. In my opinion though they are still to high compared to other states near by.
If your lucky you might bump into their beer expert that hangs around to help with questions or to give suggestions. I've bumped into one a few times and he really knows his beers.
Overall if you don't want a whole case and need a few groceries then this is the place to stop.

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.

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.

Second time making the trip to Market District and decided to do a thorough search of the beer selection.
One of the best places I have been to in the surrounding Pittsburgh area thus far in terms of selection. Had a lot of good stuff- including Sierra Nevada, Victory, Dogfish Head, Troegs, Great Lakes, and Founders. Disappointed that you can not build your own 6 pack, but hopefully it will only be a matter of time before customers can do that.
I was able to talk for a while with the employee that is in charge of purchasing and stocking the shelves with specific beers and he was able to give a lot of good information in terms of what this specific Giant Eagle/Market District gets depending on the time of year. He said they usually have beer tastings almost every Friday and Saturday so I will look forward to going to one of those soon.
The fact that being able to buy beer in supermarkets is fairly new for PA, I was happy with the fact that throughout a year, this specific Market District will have approx 500 beers for customers to choose from. Definitely starting off on the right foot and it can only get better from here on out. Definitely my place to go to get beer for now.

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.

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!

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.
