Not much to see here, better than your average hole in the wall, but far from a craft beer haven. Meh is what comes to mind, the saving grace was a solitary sided of Space Station: Middle Finger bottled a week ago.

This store is average all around. You walk in and instantly there is a small amount of craft brews and all of the 650s and 750s that they carry. This rack mainly consisted of Indiana breweries, Ommegang, Boulevard, etc. The rest of their craft selection is in the back. That selection was average at best. The only notable beer they had was Samuel Smith's Yorkshire Stingo. I can't think of another place in the area that carries that but then again it was $14. The singles that they feature on a very small, two sided shelf are all way past their best by date. This store is a last option. The Payless and Crown Liquors that're within ten minutes of this location blow it away.

Come on, $12 for a 12oz bottle of DFH stout?

Walking in the door there is some promise of a good craft beer selection here. After looking at the isle by the front door, I was left looking for the rest of their selection. The best thing I saw here was some Stone Russian Stout (2010), everything else was just plain. I walked over to the "beer cave" and started wishing I like Budweiser, because American Yellow beer is all that is stocked inside. I did find a few DFH stouts but they really have them marked at $12 for a bottle. I asked to person behind the counter what they 10% off of craft beer selection was all about and all they said was it was off of a case of at least 24.

Too pricey

Not a good selection of crafts

un-knowledgeable employees (or just dont care)

This 21st Amendment location is on the Northeast side of Indy not too far off 465 in the Shadeland Station Shopping Center. Parking is plentiful.

There is a decent amount of beer stocked around the store. There are shelves near the register and coolers and more shelves in the rear of the store. The space is pretty open and easy to navigate.

The beer selection is decent. There are regional beers like Three Floyds, Boulevard, Mad Anthony, Barley Island and others. Other micros like Stone, Rogue, Bell's and others are represented as well. There is a decent selection of imports as well. Mixed 6-packs can be created from any of the loose singles, including a Batch 9000 on my visit.

Service was pretty good on a weekday afternoon. The beers were wrapped up and boxed carefully, and the guy behind the counter was friendly.

Overall it seems like you can't go a quarter mile without hitting a Crown in the Indy area but 21st Amendment is worth a look too.
