I visited their new Keystone location today... ROOMY! They probably had 20 of the Top 50 on hand. The beer was kept cold behind 21 doors and they had four rows of warm singles the entire length of the 21 doors. The owner, Jim, was VERY helpful... he took the time to search for some beers on my list in the back room. Great store... a MUST see when in Indianapolis!
I love Vine & Table, the staff is always helpful and very knowledgable in all areas, vine sprits and beer. They host great events and specials all the time. If you live in the indianapolis area you need to make this place a stop.
One of several stores on the north side of Indy worth checking out.

A small store, with a good selection of wines and beers. A very large walk in cooler and plenty of unchilled beers, as well. And a great specialty cheese (and other foods) shop is attached. Really a great store!
EDIT: Now that it has switched from Kahnís to Vine and Table, Iíd make a few more comments. First, the staff is very helpful and enthusiastic. The only reason I donít give them top marks for service is because, despite the enthusiasm, they arenít as knowledgeable about beer as Iíd like them to be. BUT...theyíre clearly trying to gain that knowledge, and that counts for something. Their weekly beer tastings (FREE!) are a plus, as well. I do think that the selection has slipped a bit since it changed hands, though itís hard to say since I was living out of state during most of my visits to Kahns and am in state now that itís V&T. Of course, some things are out of their hands, such as Great Lakes no longer being distributed in the area.
I was most impressed by the staff. They are very knowledgeable and willing to discuss beers with you. Nice selection of Belgians and a decent selection of micros. The beer guy at this store told me that he has more vintage stuff at the Indianapolis location. However, this is a much newer and nicer store. It is also an upscale neighborhood in suburban Indianapolis. If you are on the north side of Indy, it is worth a visit.
The selection is pretty good here, but the prices are rather high. This is a store that sells both booze and gourmet food, so the real advantage here is being able to buy delicious food under the same roof as craft beer.
Stopped in here today before heading home to Ohio...WOW...Superstore is RIGHT. I have never seen such a clean, organized and well stocked store! LOTS OF BEER!!! Excellent selection and the shelves were BEAUTIFULLY stocked. Prices were several dollars below what we have in Ohio and I found several things we can not get here...

I stopped by Kahnís while they were having a tasting, which consisted of some mighty fine stuff! They had a colossal selection of beers that I spent a good half an hour picking through.. Unfortunately I was on business without my car, so I couldnít take much back with me. They had a lot of stuff that Iíd never seen before and/or couldnít get. The service seemed kind, but rushed, which Iím sure had to do with the tasting. Great place to stop!
Excellent beer store. This location had taken a step down in the past but has reemerged as a top notch beer store. Very large selection of beer, they claim in the 700-800 bottle range, and I think they are probably right. It is definately the best selection in both volume and variety in the area. Coolers with six packs and bombers, a huge walk in cooler with beer seperated by region of the US and countries, and a massive wall of unique and often rare imports sold by the bottle. Their selection of belgian beers is quite impressive. They have limited singles available in mix-a-6 format and the thing I like the best is that you have to search hard if you are looking for BMC. The staff is helpful, but some of them are more knowledgable in wine and spirits, of which this store has a massive, and impressive selection. It is in an upperclass area of the city and obviously caters to those looking for good beer, wine, and spirits.
Their food market occupies the other side of the store and has an ecletic selection of unique food items. A large cheese selection is a nice stop to pair with a beer, sushi, a deli, and some great pre-made items to go.
Overall it is a must visit for those who have finer tastes and are in the city.
