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.

Often for selection I have to put up with a place that feels like a whole in the wall with super crowded shelves and but Kahn's is clean, brightly lit, and the shelves aren't packed so close together you're worried about knocking something off a shelf by turning around. The staff is helpful and don't hover but do inquire if you need help from time to time and the selection is fairly decent though not mind blowing. Also importantly the beer is reasonably fresh, I have yet to find out of code beer (though it's not like I've checked every bottle) and combined with a fair amount of cooler space means I don't worry about finding some 3 year old sixer of pils on a back shelf.

It's my go to store when I want to get something more elusive than I can find at the local Meijer or Kroger. I'm quite the fan.

Great selections of beers here with many quality events and tastings. I appreciate their efforts on social media, announcing new arrivals and restocks. One complaint is that they seem to hold things back for favorite customers at the expense of others. I rushed over once after they announced on twitter the arrival of a special release. I was there in about 45 minutes but was told I missed it by 15 minutes (no problem). Frustratingly, 2 guys walked in 10 minutes later and each received 2 bottles out of the back. Guess I didn't know the secret handshake.

Personally I don't use BA very much, but I do like good beer. Kahn's without a doubt is the best beer/wine store I have found in Indiana in the 12 plus years I have lived here. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I recently attending their GI Bourbon County release and even though the turnout was much higher that expected, and the supply of beer was down, they did a wonderful job of meeting the needs of the vast majority of people that made the journey. Kudos to Jim, Al, Will, Paul and the rest for pulling this off.

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!
