This place has a pretty unassuming façade with the big signs on the billboard and roof only reading “Discount liquor” It wasn’t until we were walking into the store that we saw Parti-Pak behind a few parked cars. As you walk in directly to your right is a wrap around wall of cooler doors and then a wall of singles marked with BA and RB hangtags most of them in the high 90s. The first isle of warm beer was literally about 12 inches wide and the other rows varied from 24-30 inches wide. I had to back out of most rows to let other past. The rows were stacked as tall as the arm could reach. Everything in the store is sold in singles but most of it isn’t marked unless there is a hang tag but about 25% of the beers.

They have a big selection of local beers aswellas lots of American beers with a smaller number of Belgian, British and German beers further back. I even picked up a bottle of Jadwiga Polish mead aged for 25 yrs in oak. They had lots of one-off beers that I haven’t seen in a while including stone 06.06.06 and Ommegedon. Some of the bottles looked pretty dusty on the high shelves so I avoided some of the more finicky styles. I still spent more than I have spent at any liquor store, which required two trips to the car. It could use some improvements in storage and labeling but this is the best beer selection I have ever seen.

My only knocks on Parti Pak are the lack of organization of and somewhat rough vibe/clientele. Other than that, this store has an awesome selection and a very nice staff. It may take you a while, but you stand a good chance of finding any beer you are looking for as long as it is in Indiana distro. If you can't find something, ask someone working and they will help you out. My only other warning is to keep an eye on bottle dates because the lack of organization plays out in stock rotation.

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.
