Stopped here on saturday while in town to pick up some sour upland fruit lambic goodness!

Atmosphere/Quality: Its a large aluminium farm building with a nice store on the inside. People are friendly and greet you as you walk into the door. Clean, well lit and organized.

Service: All I gotta say is that I met Al on BA from a beer thread that I posted about local Indiana beer. He said he would take care of me! He was a great guy to meet and an awesome BA. We talked for a while and made some fantastic beer reccommendations from his beer stock that for the most part sounds like he has hand picked. Not only that, but he shared a few really nice beers and tasted them out with us while we talked and beer shopped. Al is probably the reason this beer section is what it is. Ask for Al hes a wealth of beer knowledge, good guy and a great BA!

Selection: Great locals present and accounted for. A 3 or 4 level shelf that almost streaches the entire store length that has many great craft beer from all over the world. Its well organized by beer region and he has tags on some ber to denote a sour beer, just encase that's you thing or not it will be easy to differentiate between the beers.

Value: Prices seem to be fair here and nothing seemed to be that far from out of line on the price tags. Nice value for your money.


Bottom line stop at this store come and see Al if you need any help with any beer questions. It a top notch beer store, I was impressed! Thanks again Al.

Large shop boasting a pleasant atmosphere and an exhaustive selection of domestic and imported craft beers, including many Indiana-brewed beers. There is also a good selection of glassware and other wine- and beer-related merchandise. Located only minutes from I-70, well worth a side trip if you're passing through Indy.

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.
