This place is like a Costco for alcohol. And while it specializes in wines and has a breathtaking selection of those, Kahn's also has one of the most impressive beer selections I've ever seen.

They seem to specialize in foreign bottles as individuals, and while they tend to be a bit on the high side in price I believe it's worth it. I'm not even certain of where they get that kind of selection.

They have all the bases covered for domestic breweries, and I like to stop in periodically to see what they have in that's a bit off the beaten track. They usually don't disappoint.

My only knock is they'll occasionally overprice some beers knowing they'll probably sell them because supply in the area fluctuates. Three Floyds is a great example. I'll see bottles at Kahn's that are 10 to 25 percent higher in price than other places.

But on the whole, I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

What a wondeful beer store! I stopped in at Kahns on my way to a business meeting. A very good selection of single bottles and 6 packs, not to mention liquor. A very nice young lady was extremely helpful explaining the layout of the store. She came back around after 5 mins to ask me what styles of beer I liked and guided me to some of her favorites in those styles. I wish someone like her was at all beer stores. Picked up some 3 Floyds, BA Narwhal, and other beers I have never seen or heard before. If your passing through, this is a must stop!

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 hole in the wall with super crowded shelves, 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.
