I visited Parti-Pak on my day off on my 2nd stop of 5 of Indy's best bottle shops, and was not let down. The outside of the store looks like a ghetto packaged liquor shop, complete w/ check cashing/payday loan shop next door. A sign on the outside caught my eye, which said something to the effect of, "Largest specialty beer selection. If it's available in the state, you'll find it here.". "Allright, it's on," I thought as I walked through the doors.
The store has a pretty packed feel to it. Lots of shelves filled w/ LOTS of beer! Left side of the store is wines/spirits, middle shelves and back coolers are domestic macros & FMB's. The right side is beer heaven. The selection at Parti-Pak appeared to be even slightly better than Kahn's on Keystone. Right perimeter of the store is cold bottle storage. Fantastic selection of brews in the coolers. Running perpendicular to the right (north) wall are 5 or 6 full double aisles of craft 6 packs & bombers, and import 6 packs and single bottles. Some items are priced in the same ballpark as other stores in town. Other items are slightly cheaper. A friendly store clerk in his 20s was quick to ask if I needed help, and was able to tell me whether they had some specific brews I was looking for, and when others might be coming in.
Again, I was truly impressed w/ the selection, and the friendliness of the staff. The store is a good 30-45 min. drive for me, but I'll most definitely be back!

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!
