True to its name, The Beer Temple is a sanctuary for craft-brew lovers. Chris Quinn and his wife, Margarey, have opened a completely unpretentious establishment that enables patrons to bow down to the power of good beer. A certified cicerone, Chris is quick with a quality recommendation, interesting tidbits on particular brewing processes, encyclopedic knowledge of the history of various brews and samples of new beers on his doorstep—all without a speck of salesmanship.

Best bottle shop and the best people in the city. Chris is amazingly knowledgeable and very personable.
Beer Temple is a liquor store for people who really love craft beer. Where else in the city can you participate in a vertical tasting of Three Floyds Darklord free of charge? It's also a place where people who aren't craft beer snobs to come and learn about the stuff they're drinking. Chris, the owner, is always available to help you make a selection and he's almost always sampling something rare or hard-to-find. After shopping here, it will be hard to buy beer anywhere else.
