Massive place in two parts - use the door on the left for liquor, and the one on the right for beer. You’ll see the grwloer station first, and they do give samples, but they’re tiny and in paper cups. Can’t beat the bottle selection in this area though.

Decent big beer selection and easy to find store near downtown. Had several impressive 3L bottles of Double Bastard and Arrogant Bastard along with some Rogue, Mendocino,DH, and various trappists. Has a small beer store on the other side of a glass wall; stupid TN liquor laws. I recommend Woody’s in Franklin(Cool Springs) though.

I had a nightmare trying to find this place. Not because it’s hidden, but because maps.google.com just flat out lied to me and the streets in Nashville are arranged in a rather unique fashion. I was very happy that my time was not wasted. The wine side had quite a bit of beer that is not available in Knoxville or even NC, GA, or SC like Boulder, Schlafly, BBC, and 120 minute IPA. A few weird Russian and Belgian brews were on the shelf too. Prices are fair considering the market. The 6% beer side has a build your own 6 pack side which was great for getting a lot of local stuff. I found Frugal to be fairly close in quality to Midtown with a little different selection. I’d recommend going to both places if possible to get the spectrum of beer available in the area.

Big beer and liquor store on the edge of downtown and two blocks from the new Yazoo brewery. Because of some insane Tennessee state liquor law, this place has separate entrances, exits, and registers for low-ABV (’normal’) beer, and higher-ABV beer, and wine and liquor. So I had to buy Yazoo Rye Saison on the beer side and Yazoo SUE on the liquor side in two separate transactions. Maddening. The bottle selection is pretty good, but the setup makes browsing frustrating. A lot of the good Southern beers are not broken down into singles, and I didn’t feel like buying 6-packs of everything I wanted to try. The big bottles are mostly things I can find at other good beer stores, with a few exceptions. They don’t sell on Sundays, so I had to carve out some time in the middle of the weekend instead of on my way out of town. The location and good beers make it worth a visit, but I’d like to see some changes in the way the place is organized and in the state laws (well, since the second one will be tougher, at least break down more 6-packs for singles).

Typical split store because of the stupid TN laws. Beer side has a respectable selection and some glassware. The liquor side carries a few goodies. Stone, Rochefort, Westmalle, Mendocino, Unibroue, DFH,Terrapin , Orval, Chimay, Unibroue, BBC, Left Hand, North Coast, and a few others. The liquor staff has very little knowledge of beer, but it is a liquor store. They do have the lowest prices in town. Venture over to the beer side, and you will find many outdated UK and European beers. The micro selection stays pretty fresh, with offerings from BBC, Fort Collins, Terrapin, Highland, Left Hand, Yazoo, Blackstone, Wild Goose, Schlafly, Leinenkugal, Abita, Rogue, North Coast, as well as your typical Sam Adams and Sierra. They have a small singles section, which is 1.79 per bottle or 9.99 per six. Most of them are regional micros. You are not going to find any rarities in TN because of our stupid laws. If you are in Nashville, this is one of the best stores to hit.

Hands down the cheapest prices in town. (though still not ’cheap’) The selection of the low alc side is more impressive than the high alc. But for a more expansive selection, for only a few pennies more, i’d recommend Mid-town over here. But value is the draw for this place.

The liquor side is not really beer-focused, but has a selection that ranges from pretty good to passable. Prices also tend to vary, but nothing too expensive ($11.99 for Rogue Imperial Pilsner). The beer side is slanted toward case sales, is seems, but the selection is decent. The do not like to break up six packs, and the sixer selection is much better than the singles selection.

Seems about the same as Midtown. A small high gravity selection and a pretty sizable under 6% side. Under six has few singles available while over six was mostly singles. Close to the new Yazoo digs.

Typical of Tennessee liquor/beer stores they have one of each, side by side. The selection of big beers on the liquor side is the best in Nashville that I'm aware of. The beer store side has a fair selection, but few singles.
