Updated review based on a follow up visit where service was exceptional - got a couple of Founder's 4 packs pulled "from the back."

The more beer stores I visit, the more apparent it becomes that Kahn's has one of the finest collection of Belgian's and domestics that are accessible in Indiana.

I made a $219 stock-up stop at Kahn's while in town on business. It's a bit trickey to get to from the Interstate but it's on the south east side of the Broad Ripple village area which is home to Brugge and The Broad Ripple Brewpub (two unique/characteristic brewing spots in Indy).

I used to live around the corner and am a bit dissapointed with the cookie cutter feel of the new facility. The old location is a block or two north on the same side of the street and had a cool art deco front to it.

My objective was to pick up FFF which I can't get in Ohio along with any others that caught my eye. Here is my receipt...

4 pack Witkap Singel $17.99
4 pack Witkap Abbey Triple $18.99
4 pack St. Bernadus Watou Tripel $13.99
6 pack FFF Pride and Joy $10.99
6 pack FFF Gumballhead $10.99 (2 of these)
6 pack Dark Horse CT IPA $9.99
6 pack Dark Horse Sapient Tripel $10.99
4 pack Dark Horse Oatmeal Stout $8.49
4 pack Dark Horse Fore Smoked Stout $8.49
2 12 oz Goose Island Bourbon County Stout $10.98
750 ml UniBroue 16th $8.99
750 ml UniBroue 15th $8.99
750 ml UniBroue Quelque Chose $10.99
750 ml De Glazen Toren Jan De Lichte $11.99
11 oz De Regenboog Vuuve $3.99
22 oz FFF Behemoth Barley Wine $17.99
22 oz FFF Rabbid Rabbit Saison $10.99

The $10.99 for Gumballhead seemed a bit much, but my wife loves it. I was surprised to see the UniBroue and am anxious about the quality (did they store it properly?)

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.
