Parti-Pak. So unclearly marked from the outside, you have to squint to see Parti-Pak painted on the building. It's not on the sign. But, you'll know you are at the right place when you see the giant Miller High Life soldier mural painted on the wall.

The selection is the mostest. The literal most. They seem to have more than Kahn's selection, seriously. For an Indiana beer store, it was a staggering and overwhelming experience. The shelves reach seven or eight feet high, three feet apart from each other. You are smothered with bottles of beer.

And what can you find? Literally everything that is available from distributors in this wonderful state. However, for all the crazy random beers I've never seen, I have three concerns:

1) They didn't stock the most obvious of beers. For example, Dogfish 90 Minute--nope. Upland Wheat--nope. Wait, seriously?!? Not like I would get Upland Wheat, but here in the home state you would think they would have one of the local's favorite micros.

2) Dust on a ton of bottles, calling into question how quickly they turn over bottles.

3) No resident beer geek. No one knew anything about beer when I was there.

Also, guess your price! There's no prices on the bottles, which means you shouldn't give a shit about anything until you get footed with the bill, which I think I got a mild about of beer for a hefty bill.

I will go back, and I will be sure to not care how much I spend. Usually I don't, so I shouldn't have a problem.

Piles of brews in here and quite a surprise from the quaint look of the outside. Knowledgeable staff ready to help, but watch the bottle dates as I did find some aging. Still a must visit in the area.

My only knocks on Parti Pak are the lack of organization of and somewhat rough vibe/clientele. Other than that, this store has an awesome selection and a very nice staff. It may take you a while, but you stand a good chance of finding any beer you are looking for as long as it is in Indiana distro. If you can't find something, ask someone working and they will help you out. My only other warning is to keep an eye on bottle dates because the lack of organization plays out in stock rotation.

You wouldn't know it from the outside, but this place has one of the best beer selections in town. Their selection of Euro beers is especially amazing. The downside is that many of those European beers have been sitting on the shelves for years. Once you knock the dust off of them, check to make sure its a beer that ages well. Aside from the selection, another great feature of Parti Pak is the ability to buy any beer in the store as a single. Love going in and grabbing a mixed six pack of great beers (not just the limited selection of "you build it" six packs in other stores). The service has always been excellent for me here. Several employees have gone out of their way to help me track down a hard to find beer, even offering to drive it down from their northside location.

My overall rating would be higher but the "vibe" score knocks it down some. I'm always triple checking that my car doors are locked before I go inside.

I've been to this store many times. From the outside, it looks like a typical liquor store but the inside tells a different story! While cluttered and difficult to navigate, the store boasts one of the largest selections of craft beers I've seen. The staff is very knowledgeable and quite helpful. They're great about taking your personal information and contacting you if/when a particular beer you've been searching for arrives in their store. They also offer beer and wine tasting sessions throughout the year.

Thanks to the best craft beer store in Indianapolis. Bob was able to get me my # 1 want and another amazing brew as well. I wish I was much closer to this place. Im on the north side of indy and Party pak is on the south. Visit this place if your in Indy!
