quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | $$$
Located in downtown Indianapolis, kind of easy access from I-70. The beer selection is very broad and deep, and as a bonus I stopped in on Christmas Eve, when the beer guy (Sprinkle) was sprinkling special cellared beers onto the shelves periodically. Lots of good stuff, although the prices were kind of high (so high that I passed on everything).
The prices on standard stock were OK, maybe a tad high too but I don't shop in Indy very often so I can't compare it with Kahns or others. But I'd happily stop here again (and plan to) just due to the wide selection.

I found this to be a nice store in the heart of the city. Prices were ok to maybe slightly higher (but you generally get that in the city). Store was laid out nice and efficiently, and service was top notch. They seemed to know their beer and were genuinely concerned with making the consumer happy. Their line up of beers had some heavy hitters, and although they did have some obscure breweries from the local and intermediate areas I thought they were a slight step below compared to a few other places I went to in the area. I would definitely stop here again if passing through, although it is the city with traffic and parking concerns, so I might rather go to a suburban location of this fine chain.

On my to MacNiven's I stopped in Crown Liquors for a glance of what they have to offer and I concluded their selection is for real. I was impressed at the cleanliness of the store and how well everything was organized.
For those of us interested in good beers, the coolers are to the left when you enter and appear to start of with the macros first and and then give way to some really good craft beer options. I'm not gonna go into too much detail here, but I was mainly interested in those beers that I can't find in Massachusetts, so I was pleased with the selections from Bell's & Three Floyds that I'm accustomed to only reading about.
I ended up purchasing a 6 pack of Three Floyds Alpha King & Bell's Oberon. I definitely would have ended up buying more if logistics wasn't an issue this trip, but I guess there is always tomorrow.

While not the best beer store in Indy, it is a great place for downtown Indy. Nice selection of micro breweriess from all around, just as you'll find throughout Indy, but not quite the quantity or number of actual brews.
I was able to pick up some Indiana brews (Barley Island), but was dissapointed in the lack of more Hoosier beers.
Service was nice, asking if I needed help, but weren't sure if want I wanted was in (Shoreline) and took some time finding out. Still, fairly friendly over all.
Clean store, lay out is nice. Again, it's not the best in the city, but probably the best in that area.

Stopped here between Sunking and Upland Tasting Room....
This liquor store is about 3 minutes from Sunking-- and if you're doin one, you may as well do the other.
Good selection, friendly staff, and they had some Dre fontenien on shelves-- that is my favorite part of this store.
Anyway, if you're coming to Indy to hit up sunking, check out this place. It's very close by, and really worthwhile.
The prices were decent.
The selection had most any IN and great lakes breweries, and even had mixed six packs of "all Indiana samplers" and "dark veer samplers" that seemedto be hand-picked by the store employees.

I was staying downtown, and went to eat in the vicinity of this shop. I saw the amazing reviews and had to make a stop. I was in brief contact with sprinkle, the GM. I tried to come in time to meet him, but I didnt make it before he had to leave. Regardless, the people working were very nice and helpful, it was surprising considering that I was there 15-20 min before closing. They still greeted me and asked if they could help, I had a question about Behemoth Blonde dating and one of the young guys looked it up for me. In all I felt quite welcome here.
The store itself is very new and nice looking. Very clean, especially since many liquor stores are dusty, cramped places. The area that got my interest is the beer area. It is comprised of a long wall of coolers housing 6packs. Across from that are the shelves that hold large bottles and some singles.
The rest of the upstairs is liquors and other things. There is a downstairs that looked to be a huge wine cellar style shop.
The selection was pretty large and very unique with many rarities. Lots of Three Floyds, Mikkeller, Boulevard, The Bruery, De Molen (which was a nice, rare surprise), Indiana locals.
The coolest bottles were two vintages of Behemoth Blonde (08, which I got the last of, and 09) and a Cuvee de Tomme. I just couldnt afford $52.99 for a small bottle of a probably flat LA beer.
Prices are a tad high for some things, but they offer a 10% discount for BA members.
I recommend this store, I would like to have the chance to stop back again.

I had heard great things about this store so I had to stop by. It's two stories in all, a main floor with beer and liquor, and a basement with tons and tons of wine. The beer is directly to the left on the main floor. They definitely had quality breweries, including Cantillon and a couple from The Lost Abbey. I had heard they had Russian River as well but they must have been out when I went. The beer selection was extensive, but not the most I've ever seen by any means. I'd say they definitely focus on quality over quantity. They had a lot of rarely seen beers. They were a bit pricey but at least they carried them. They also did have some things that I hadn't seen in awhile, most notably Anchor's Christmas Ale, which I absolutely love. It's a great store, the only downside is that it's hard to find parking. It's definitely worth the stop, especially if you're downtown Indianapolis.

Yet another stop on my trip to Indy.
While this was overall a smaller selection, it was far better and varied than others. I heard at one point they had Russian River (they did have a Lost Abbey Cuvee de Tomme, but its definitely not worth $50). Plenty of beer in the coolers along the wall with a top notch selection of local Indiana brews along with one of the better imported sections in the area. Picked up plenty at this place despite slightly higher prices.
The staff was friendly and knew their stuff. A great shop to be nearby to say the least.

Stopped here while visiting family in Indy, about the sixth place I stopped looking for Three Floyd's Alpha King (fortunately they had one sixer left).
The place is well laid out and spacious; with several well stocked beer shelves and coolers. Fairly well laid out and easy to navigate. The downstairs has a very respectable wine selection.
The staff seemed fairly knowledgeable and not overly pushy, but definitely willing to talk beer when prompted.
The selection was pretty good, not the best of the beer stores I visited while in Indy, but good none the less. Lots of local-ish beers ranging from Upland & Three Floyd's to Two Brothers and Tyranena.
Overall this was a nice store with a good selection, and centrally located.

The service was a 5 even before I set foot in this place. I was taking a short weekend trip to Anderson, IN for a wedding and I posted and searched on this site for suggestions on a good beer place in downtown Indy. I got pointed to the store manager who was friendly and very helpful. When I finally arrived at the store the staff was friendly helpful.
They have a nice selection of brews that aren't available in the St. Louis are including the locals like FFF and others. But they also have Stone, DFH and some The Bruery. Good stuff. As others have mentioned they definitely go for quality overall quantity. The store is two smaller stories with beer on the right side of the first one and then liquor to the left. The first floor is wine and what looked like a tasting room.
Very nice place and I would stop any time I could if I was in Indy.
