Stopped in during my trip to Indy.

Incredible selection! Nothing but craft and upscale imports. Decent amount of sixers, but the bread and butter here is the singles. We picked up a 4-Pack of Brooklyn BCS for $8.99, which was very resonable to me. They also had some limited edition DFH Whole Foods 30th anniv glasses for $3, so I picked up a few of those also. They seemed to keep up on the limited seasonals, and prices were very fair on about everything.

A young lady came by and asked if we found everything ok, but that was the extent of customer service. The cashier was rude, but I didnt really care that much.

Wish I had the $ to buy more, but I will make my way back down here again soon.

While the selection at Whole Foods is not as large as a liquor store, they have some great beers on their two-sided beer shelf.

They have a lot of Indiana brewed beers, including Three Floyds, Upland, and Oaken Barrel. They have a wide variety of other American craft beers, too, including Dogfish Head (including singles of 120 minute IPA), Brooklyn, Bells, Avery, Pyramid, and Flying Dog.

They have a nice variety of imports, from England, Scotland (including a couple I'd not seen elsewhere), Ireland, Germany, and Belgium.

There are absolutely no macros at all.

The prices are comparable to other beer stores in the area, as well.

Service was non-existant; no one came to ask if I needed any help at all. (Although the cashier was friendly.) However, that was not a problem, as you should be able to see everything they have with no problems.

Looks like a health nut store until you venture your way into the back! Thats where you find Aisle upon isle of great craft and specialty beers. Ranging from Duvel, arrogant bastard, dogfish, Stone levitation, etc....

the customer service is great. There is a bearded man who works in that section who is very willing to help and give advice on brews he would recommended. Price is decent on some brews, and a maybe a buck more on some of the seasonal beers. At least I noticed this during the recent oktoberfest season.

Been here a few times, and never left disappointed.

Also they have 2x4s of PBR!!!
