Kahns was my first stop in Indianapolis. This store has a very high quality of beers available. The stock seemed to be fresh and wasnt dusty. The beerman was in when I visited Kahns. He was helpful in locating items in the store. The selection truly was exceptional. I was able to find several bottles of Cantillion I could not find in Cincinnati. (Saint Lamvinus, Fou Foune, Lou Pepe ect.) The cold case was mainly stocked with six packs of beer. All of the beer was craft beer or imports. The warm shelves had a pretty good selection of singles. The beer is on cramped shelves. I was afraid I would knock things over at times. This is a good beer store but frankly I will not go back for anything that isnt nearly impossible to find else where. Some of the prices are a bit on the outrageous side.

Visited with my wife on a recent trip to Indianapolis. We came here on our drive back home, before hitting Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo.

Beer selection was gargantuan, and they also had a decent range of glassware available. The wine suitcase for a mere $259 made for a good laugh.

I scored a bunch of Three Floyds Space Station Middle Finger, Backmasking Oatmeal Stout, Yum Yum ASA, and Alpha King APA, and left a happy camper as a result. Beer prices were fair IMO.

Overall, I can see why this place is highly rated, as we were very impressed with the selection here.

Absolute banger of a place to buy craft beer in Indy. I drive up from Cincy once or twice a year to fill my car with all the Chicago area stuff I can't get. Until I can get Burn Em in Ohio, I'll keep coming back.

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.
