I was really impressed with V&T. They have a great little market that I've always wanted to try, but I always end up blowing all my money on beer!

They have a great selection of beer It seems that they have changed their beer layout since most of the earlier reviews. I guess everything used to be in coolers but now almost everything is just stocked on shelves and they have a few aisles including a shelving unit with random singles so you don't have to buy an entire pack to try a new beer.

The staff if friendly and the beer manager, Jordan is really helpful and does a great job of working to get very hard to find brews in stock whenever he can.

The always seem to go there with the expectation that I'm going to pay a premium for the selection and the service and sometimes do pay about 20% more, but I also notice that plenty of items are cheaper than anywhere else I've been also, which I'm always happy to see.

Always one of my first stops in Indy.

I have made Vine and Table a regular destination of mine for craft beer, and sometimes spirits as well. They have expanded their selection considerably within the last year, and now carry a great variety of American/Local microbrews, as well as Euro/Belgian imports. I would expect them to continue growing their craft beer section throughout the next year.

Where this store really shines is in the service they provide to their customers. Jordan, the beer manager, puts an enormous effort into procuring the right products for his customers. He is knowledgeable of his products, and goes out of his way to help you find a beer that will suit your tastes. Very rarely is he unable to get me a beer that I am looking for. He keeps great communication with his customers, and is also a great guy to engage in beer conversation.

Beyond the beer section the store continues to uphold its standard for high quality products. Their selection of spirits is extremely vast, and they also stock a large variety of glassware, cheeses, wine, and other gourmet items.

Vine and Table is a gourmet food, craft beer, wine, and spirits store. Food to the left, wine/spirits to the right, and Craft Beer is smack in the middle (where it should be). Very limited cold selection but that's where the negatives end. An extremely clean and well maintained store. Staff is extremely kind and helpful and willing to do anything in their power to get you what you need. Large Belgian selection with an above average selection in the other European countries (Germany, England, etc). The American craft section is wonderful and is ever growing. Prices are about the same as they are in other stores in the area. This is a must stop if your in Indy.

Great bottle shop. Find myself visiting more and more recently. V&T store layout is well organized and their beer selection seems to be rapidly growing. Jordan, the beer manager, does a great job bringing in a great mix locals, but also brings in a decent amount of other interesting brews. All of the staff is friendly, knowledgable, and willing to help you find what you're looking for. There are a lot of shops in the Indy area, but the trip up north to V&T in Carmel is definitely worth it.

Vine and Table is a frequent stop of mine. Beer/wine/booze to right and very clean, well stocked. Excellent selection of locals and a fair bit of imports/distro beers as well. Staff is always friendly and helpful and beer manager knows his stuff. Selection here has gotten a LOT better in last year or so and is a place I try and visit whenever close enough. Excellent gourmet market as well for any tasting needs. Wine selection is impressive, as well as the spirits selections.

Overall I give V&T three red lightsabers....if you are in the area you MUST stop. Tell 'em Mongo sent ya. (Actually don't because they won't have a clue what you are talking about! hahaha)

Cheers!

The beer selection here has really grown in the past year. I liked the old walk in cooler, but everything now is much more organized. The beer manager really knows his stuff and takes good care of you when you need something. The staff are always helpful as well. Whenever I am in Carmel, I try to stop in to see what they might have. Great bottle shop!! I would love to try to shop some of the other stuff they have, but I always spend my money on beer. Looks like they have a massive wine selection and a really nice gourmet market. Some day I will buy more than beer. :-)

I stopped by this "gourmet market" just because I saw it here on BA. I was decently surprised. They had Indiana micros well covered. They had FFFs stocked in six packs and bombers. They also had the best prices I've seen on DFH sixers. Make no mistake, this is a wine store/gourment market first, but they have a very good selection of beer in their beer cooler. They feature a decent sized walk in cooler with cases in the middle and sixers/bombers/singles along the walls. The quality was very good. The service was pretty good as well. This place definitely surprised me. I'd say it's a good safety net if "bigger" places are out of what you want.

I understand some people are put off by all the beer being in the coolers, but damn...thats a lot of beer! I frequent Kahns when im looking for something I can't find, but the newly named Vine and Table Gourmet has a cold beer selection that is comparable to none. I know people want the ability to buy beer warm, but I believe their selection in beer outweighs any warm vs cold argument. They have everything (even found some things that Kahns rarely caries) If you are looking for selection, go here, want convienece...go somewhere else! Complete case of cigars and plenty of other good stuff for a weekend with the guys.

They keep all of their beer in a walk in refrigerator, which is kind of a downfall in my eyes...I like my beer cold, but knowing that I won't be putting most of my beer immediately into a refrigerator kept me from spending a lot more money at this store.

They had a decent breakdown in the way that they sorted their brews...the USA was broken down into West Coast, East Coast, and Midwest...the World was broken down into countries.

Their selection was pretty decent, but I was a bit reluctant to buy anything because of the price tags. In case you didn't know, this store is where Kahn's used to be, but that was almost 4 years ago. So why did I see Kahn's stickers on bottles of Dreadnaught IPA?

In any case, this is probably a great place to stop if you just happen to be in the neighborhood.

A gourmet wine and specialty foods (cheese, etc.) shop with a very nice beer selection. All beer is kept in a walk-in cooler (wear a jacket, you'll want to be in there a while), including a very nice selection of American craft beer and plenty of Belgian and other European beers. Beer is available by pack, case, or single. Owner/beer manager is always looking for good beer conversation and will track down virtually any request if he can get his hands on it. Frequent tastings offered of great beers in stock. Prices are competitive for what he's got in stock.
