This place has a full little warehouse feel with a hula girl greeting you as you walk in. The beer isles are made up of a wall of coolers and a long row of warm beer with some cases stacked in the middle. It was a bit hard to understand the order with imports and regional and other American beers mixed together. The have a good selection of the big craft beers and a nice breadth of European beers. They had a good amount of Midwestern beers including Bell’s, Oaken Barrel, Barley Island, and others from Indiana.

The stock looked pretty fresh and all the bottles looked clean they didn’t have many 12 oz. singles. They had a small display rack that was pretty empty with a mix your own six deal but they were mostly macros with a few craft beers that look like they were a few seasons old. I think this is a great store to stop in if you are going to a party close by or would like to pick of a few six packs of session beers but it doesn’t hold a candle to parti-pack if you are looking for a big selection.

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.
