Yow! Like many previous posters, when I first walked into this place I thought I’d been duped. 600 different beers? No way. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on the layout since they have very little floor space for such a huge inventory. They’re basically just having to cram everything they can where they can. After having a better chance to look through their selection I’m willing to buy that they carry 600 different beers. Most all of the single beers are sold warm and they won’t let you break the six packs of the cold stuff, but whatever inconvenience this may cause is easily overriden by the enormity of their selection. I scored quite a few deals off their clearance rack, including a bottle of Brass Knuckles for $1. On the afternoon I went the beer expert wasn’t working and the guy that was didn’t seem too knowledgable about what they normally did and didn’t have in stock. I didn’t bother asking for any recommendations after all the blank looks, but he did insistently recommend that I come in and talk to the beer guy the next day, which leads me to believe that they value their craft beer customers even if they don’t always have a BA working at noon on a Tuesday ;) This is a must stop for Indy beer, without question.

I will go better than best store in Indy this may be the best store in the state.

As others have said or atleast im guessing they have, if Indiana gets it Kahn's is gonna have it.
If its a very limited release your best chance at getting it is probably gonna be here.

The Staff is great all very friendly and some of the most craft beer, wine, and spirit educated people you are gonna find here..build a relationship with these guys and you wont regret it! and you may get a nice surprise every now and then!

Best beer store I've been to in Indy.

Selection is great. From local micro to global imports, a very wide selection. If it is available in Indiana, these guys are getting it.

Nice and clean. Very large selection, not only of beer, but also wine, liquor, cheese, etc.

Wine and beer tasting available on certain days.

A small cracker, relish, and cheese selection. Not a restaurant.


There are knowledgable employees waiting to answer your questions or help you find something. The guys patrolling the beer section are constantly, and I mean that literally, re-stocking every beer they have. They know when beers are due for release, what's new and just in, and will have several great suggestions based on your preferences.


If you are in the Indy area and looking for good beer, this should be your first stop.

Kahn's is great. Nice big store with great lighting and a wide varity of craft beers. Al keeps the selection nicely currated. They do a great job of letting beer nerds know when something exciting is coming in and if they sell out (which the tend to do quickly on excellent stuff).

They organize beer tastings throughout the year that are fun and educational. These usually include a raffle with the opportunity to buy some had to find beers.

Great people, great selection...happy to spend my money here.

A: Nice set up. Everything is clean and arranged in an orderly fashion.

Q: What should be fresh is, selection is constantly rotating/selling.

S: There is always someone asking if you need help or have questions. Beer Manager is a very good dude and a craft beer coinsurer himself.

S: Very diverse selection of local, national, and international craft beers. Everything that is worth getting that comes in to Indiana they have.

F: There is a side area that sells cheeses, crackers, and items of that sort, but no restaurant on site.

V: Kahn's prices are generally a dollar or two more than every other place in town. Selection is great though so they will get my business.

Aside from wine/liquor, Kahn's has the best craft beer selection in the city, hands down. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Clean spacious environment. They also do a great job on Facebook with updates as they get new items in stock.

A definite stop, when in town.

Pretty much the mecca for any craft beer fans coming to Indy. Selection cannot be beat, period. Beer to left, entire wall of coolers, a center *specials* isle and the one long shelf facing coolers. Always very clean and well-faced. Don't have to worry about any stale IPA's as they move at this location. Staff is always friendly and helpful and the beer manager is the best in the area, bar none. Some things are a bit more pricey than other stores but you are paying for quality here, and it is a price I don't mind paying at all.

Check their twitter to stay current with what is hot and fresh.

Make sure to look into Beerocracy events, their tastings are top notch and rare/limited bottles are usually available at the Beerocracy tastings via raffle.

Good selection of glassware, a limited amount of gourmet food for any last second tasting needs, huge wine selection, well stocked and rounded spirits selections....in other words you can't go wrong here.

If you stop at only one place in Indy area, make sure it is this one.

Kahn's Keystone gets a full FIVE yellow lightsabers from me....do not miss or Yoda will cry.

While there are one or two others that may come close, this is THE best store in the state for craft beer. Their selection is comprised of all of the midwest regulars, as well as whatever limited release(s) may be in season, and a very large selection of international brews. Where Kahn's really shines is their knowledge and expertise on the products they stock (and craft beer in general). Al possesses a fantastic knowledge of all things beer, and is glad to help any customer that sets foot in the beer aisle. The prices are on the higher end of the "normal range" when compared to other stores around the city, but the difference is negligible when you factor in the great service/conversation to be had here. Stop in, chat with Al, leave with beer. You'll be glad you did.

Kahn's on Keystone is my go-to liquor store, and is the first place I will take out of town friends who want to check out my favorite liquor store. It's a pretty large place and in my opinion is the best liquor store in the state, of the ones that I have been to. They have a huge selection of wine and liquor, and the craft beer selection is top notch. They have a lot of the hard to find brews, they are loyal to the local breweries and carry all of them (including Great Crescent which I haven't seen many other places). They also have a good amount of imported craft beers with a cool selection of Belgians and stuff. The beer managers are super knowledgeable and love to talk beer and give recommendations. After a few trips in, they will inevitably remember your name and will make it a point to speak with you and recommend cool new things. The prices aren't terrible, somethings are a little higher, somethings are a little lower, but nothing to lose sleep over.
