Home Brewing Stores in Pittsburgh
 
I'm in Oakland and I'm looking for a good homebrewing store in or near Pittsburgh. I've picked up some stuff at South Hills Brewing and Triangle Brewing before, but I've heard Triangles is gone (plus I'm not sure if he had any selection?) and South Hills Brewing seemed pretty expensive (although that was two years ago, maybe it is more competitive now?).

I'd prefer a local store over AHBS or other online options. I've heard good things about Bens Homebrew, he is 30 minutes from me though (although his prices seem good), if this is the best place, I will go there, just let me know!

Thanks for any help

I've made a road trip to Porter House Brew Shop, off 79 in Portersville.
Probably not that close to you, but its a nice shop with friendly people.
they have a web store, so you can see what they have.

I kegged a batch of their buckwheat honey porter and it tasted good.

Country Wines on Babcock Blvd is the sister store to South Hills Brewing. Their prices weren't all that bad I thought, though I always get my DME from online sources = $5.10 per lb just isn't cuttin it for me

Country Wines would suit you fine, and Ben's Homebrew is pretty great as well.
