Not a very good selection and not a very helpful staff. My last couple visits have left a bad taste in my mouth... the staff have a tendency to treat customers as idiots and as if they are know-it-alls. Probably wont be shopping here often if ever.

Small area for the beers, but like the Brianito said, there are many beers in that are only because there are only 2-3 bottles of each, which doesnít say much for freshness. the beers were very random, as if they picked them out of a catalog by tearing out pages and had a chicken walk around and poop on what they wanted to order. Worst part of it is that they had Beer Advocate Shelf Tags.
But I canít complain too much since I did buy 3 beers here. You will find one or two youíre interested in purchasing.

The beer area is near the front of the store (and a cooler door in the back) and is your average wide bookshelf sized space you see in most of the liquor stores around here. The thing that was odd was that for the most part there were only 1 or 2 of each beer. Sometimes youíd find 3 of something, but it just felt like they stocked beer because they had to. The selection wasnít bad, but based on other stores in the Nashville area it is average at best.
There was also an incident that left me puzzled. After perusing their selection, I approached the counter where I explained that I was doing some reviews and asked if I could take a picture or two. A manager (?) came out and asked me "What site is this for?" I told him that I was doing reviews for a major beer website and my own Tennessee-area beer site. He replied, "I think weíd rather not." While not unfriendly, it came off somewhat dismissive. I politely thanked him and proceeded to shop a bit before leaving.
I understand that sometimes stores donít wish to have pictures taken for security reasons or whatever, but if this was the case he would have said that up front instead of asking what website the review was for. I just got the impression that if I had said the review was for a wine website things would have been different. Not a big deal, but it left a sour taste.
I canít recommend going to Maryland Farms Wine & Spirits. The selection is average compared to other Nashville area "goto" places and I just didnít get a good beer vibe. Please feel free to check it out for yourself, perhaps I was just there on an off day or they were about to restock. But there are much better options.

This place is right beside Olde World Leaf and Ale. As per good olí TN laws, this place serves all the beers over 6.25%. Selection is not even half that of Red Dog, but still nothing to thumb your nose at. Lots of high alc imports here, more Ukranian, and Russian, than Belgian. Some selection of flying dog, and left hand. Service was friendly but didnít really know anything about the beers. Prices werenít horribly unreasonable. Definitely worth a peek in if you are already next door.
