On my to MacNiven's I stopped in Crown Liquors for a glance of what they have to offer and I concluded their selection is for real. I was impressed at the cleanliness of the store and how well everything was organized.
For those of us interested in good beers, the coolers are to the left when you enter and appear to start of with the macros first and and then give way to some really good craft beer options. I'm not gonna go into too much detail here, but I was mainly interested in those beers that I can't find in Massachusetts, so I was pleased with the selections from Bell's & Three Floyds that I'm accustomed to only reading about.
I ended up purchasing a 6 pack of Three Floyds Alpha King & Bell's Oberon. I definitely would have ended up buying more if logistics wasn't an issue this trip, but I guess there is always tomorrow.

A: Beer and liquor upstairs, excellent wine room downstairs. Great set up and everything is clean and well kept.
Q: Everything that should be fresh is fresh. Nothing sits too long here.
S: Staff is helpful and very knowledgeable.
S: One of the best selections in town. They get all the good stuff that you can get in IN.
F: No restaurant. Snack items available for purchase.
V: Some of the best prices in town for craft beer. Have never bought much else from them, but from what I have looked at the same trend extends to liquor and wine.

Hit this up on the way back home from Madison, WI. Nice location downtown. Great selection, I picked up some FFF, Famtome, 3F, Bruery, Sun King, and some local recommended beers. Staff is am fantastic, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, they are the reason to check this place out. Prices are fair. Good amount of refridgerators. Great joint!

This is truly my go-to location in the city to find beers, wine, and alcohol of all sorts. One of the most extensive beer selections I've found, it manages to stock a number of satisfying craft brew options from the West Coast and elsewhere that are hard to find at other spots around town. The staff are friendly, and the location is incredibly convenient for me to swing by right after work.

A: great atmosphere, place is just loaded with great beer, each new area is loaded with more beer I have to have !
Q: the quality I see is that they have some older vintages you might be hoping to find. I got ahold of the big series from Shoreline Brewing that included 2009 Lost Sailor aged in bourbon barrels !
S: the service is great at this store, the guy behind the counter KNOWS beer, and can hold a conversation about many types and breweries styles, as well as making suggestions on others you may wish to try.
Sel: I believe this selection to be top notch. I came from northern Illinois and was totally enthralled with the beer selection, I could'nt stop pulling bottles of the shelf. What a great road-trip this will be in the future!
F: not avail.
V: I think the prices were in-line with where they should be . I was'nt complaining about any of them, and I left with 3 boxes !

Stopped here while visiting family in Indy, about the sixth place I stopped looking for Three Floyd's Alpha King (fortunately they had one sixer left).
The place is well laid out and spacious; with several well stocked beer shelves and coolers. Fairly well laid out and easy to navigate. The downstairs has a very respectable wine selection.
The staff seemed fairly knowledgeable and not overly pushy, but definitely willing to talk beer when prompted.
The selection was pretty good, not the best of the beer stores I visited while in Indy, but good none the less. Lots of local-ish beers ranging from Upland & Three Floyd's to Two Brothers and Tyranena.
Overall this was a nice store with a good selection, and centrally located.

Stopped here between Sunking and Upland Tasting Room....
This liquor store is about 3 minutes from Sunking-- and if you're doin one, you may as well do the other.
Good selection, friendly staff, and they had some Dre fontenien on shelves-- that is my favorite part of this store.
Anyway, if you're coming to Indy to hit up sunking, check out this place. It's very close by, and really worthwhile.
The prices were decent.
The selection had most any IN and great lakes breweries, and even had mixed six packs of "all Indiana samplers" and "dark veer samplers" that seemedto be hand-picked by the store employees.
