quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | $$$

After lunch and a couple good brews at Shallo's, my wife and I made a beeline for this liquor store for the first time and was blown away by the selection. I am used to shopping at the Party Source or PartyTown in Northern Kentucky and was pleasantly surprised to find GREAT beer in Indy.

Selection was second to none, prices were about average and the help in the store was fantastic. I now have ANOTHER great reason to head to Indy for GREAT beer! If you are anywhere near the southside, make sure you stop in and check it out! And the owner told me they are thinking about expanding the selection, which is fine to me.

EDIT 6-18-09

Made another stop into the Parti-Pak last weekend and was a bit surprised and dissappointed to find the prices had jumped dramatically. Also, the beer seemed to be completely scattered throughout the store. Many, or maybe even most, were not priced or labeled and I had to take two bombers to the cashier just to see what the prices were. Hopefully I caught them on a bad day, but I didn't leave with my usual haul.

I've been to this store many times. From the outside, it looks like a typical liquor store but the inside tells a different story! While cluttered and difficult to navigate, the store boasts one of the largest selections of craft beers I've seen. The staff is very knowledgeable and quite helpful. They're great about taking your personal information and contacting you if/when a particular beer you've been searching for arrives in their store. They also offer beer and wine tasting sessions throughout the year.

Thanks to the best craft beer store in Indianapolis. Bob was able to get me my # 1 want and another amazing brew as well. I wish I was much closer to this place. Im on the north side of indy and Party pak is on the south. Visit this place if your in Indy!

A: A regular liquor store, nothing fancy about the atmosphere. Spacing is a little tight to manueveur through.

Q: Stock is rotated regularly. Everyting I have bought from this location is of excellent quality.

S: Very friendly staff at opening, which is the only time I go. The owner and his wife are very friendly and personable, the owner and his sons are knowledgable and pretty well informed as to what is coming in to distribution.

S: Selection if AMAZING! Widest selection in town. They usually have most of the smaller release stuff. The selection of foreign beers is staggering. Coolers line 1/4 of the store in addition to room-temp product on the shelves. Very nice liquor and nice wine selection.

F: This location does not serve food, but munchies are available for purchase.

V: Price is a bit more than other locations, but this is a family business, the owner is a cool guy, and they have awesome selection, so I don't mind. Their prices are still very fair. I shop at this location once a week and will continue to do so.

The atmosphere is essentially that you are walking into a beer hoarder's shed. Organization is lacking and there is nothing fancy about the place, but who cares?! We're looking for some good brew. On the whole quality is pretty good. My only criticism is that their inventory is so large that some of their beers have become expired and they have failed to replace them. The staff seems to be generally knowledgeable and they were willing to start a FCBS list for me over 2 months before the release date. The selection is the most diverse that I have encountered in the area. Huge selection of American offerings with many specialty and a few rare releases. There is a sizable foreign stock as well which I have yet to delve into... If want brews you can't find anywhere else in Indiana, go here, but you may have to 'dig' to find the gems.
