Here is the problem in TN. High gravity beer has to be bought at a liquor store, and everything under 6% has to be bought in a grocery store or convenient store like Raffe’s. So you have to got to two places. Raffe’s is one of the best local places outside of a grocery store.

Visited on a recent trip through Memphis. Seemed like a typical corner store from the outside. More of a deli/gas station feel inside. They do have a mixed six pack section, but unfortunately just about everything there is very common. Having said that, I did find some Lazy Magnolia which I was looking for anyway. They also have Yuengling, and I am pretty sure this is the farthest west you’ll ever see that beer. Anyways, I am glad I made the stop... but I wouldn’t make a special trip unless you’re just passing through.

Due to the weird Memphis laws, high gravity beers have to be gotten at a liquor store, and all under 6% you must find elsewhere. Any high gravity available will likely be at Buster’s, but it can be a PITA to find lower alc craft beer in Memphis. This is your place. Basically a convenience store that serves gyros, etc but the owner loves beer and if he can, he carries it. Mixed sixes available.
