Stopping on the way out of town I was able to find a good selection of local stuff that doesnít make it all the way to Ohio. The split sides were a bit annoying as the higher ABV beers were kind of tucked away but the ability to buy Terrapin and French Broad beers relatively cheaply was nice. The clerk even helped carry the case to our car which was a nice tough.
Overall I would probably see what other stores were like in the area to get a better idea but this seems like a nice stop. It did live up to the recommendations I was given by others.

This is apparently one of the best beer stores in TN, but not all that wonderful due to the general lack of support from liquor distributors to sell more high alcohol beer. Of course, there apparently isnít a very large demand for it because Iíve noticed a trend in liquor stores in TN: sought after beers can sit on a shelf for months and months before being sold. This can lead to some good finds, I picked up some Stone Imperial Stout here as well as some Samichlaus and they had a few DFH WWS also. There are probably around 30 beers on the liquor side and quite a few sakes and at least 150-200 bottles on the beer side. The 6% selection is decent enough with plenty of local and regional brews and some more widely distributed imports and micros. I make it a point to pick up a beer or two at this place whenever I (or maybe someone I know) find myself in Nashville.

Good selection, especially on the over 6% side, and the staff was helpful without being overbearing. Prices seemed reasonable, and they had a ton of stuff I couldnít get in Knoxville. The beer sideís selection wasnít quite as impressive, but still not bad.

Good selection of big beers. Had a few singles to choose from. Not many Stones to choose from but not there fault they said they will take all the distributer will give them when he will, which isnít often or much. My only problem they had some odds and ends bottles that they would not sell as singles for some reason. The guy just said nope we canít sell that as a single. I donít know what was going on with it. Re-rate went to the 5% side the next day a huge selection of beers the best Iíve seen in Tn by far. Overall it is a pretty good place.

Located near dowtown Nashville, itís your typical split beer/liquor store. Lately, they are getting the new beers before the other stores in the area...and they are getting more of it. For example, they got 7 out of the 9 cases of Stone RIS. So I say you need to hit this one if you are in town. The liquor store side carries Stone, Terrapin, Great Divide, North Coast, DFH, Left HAnd, to name a few. I am a local, and I hit this place and Frugal, as they are not too far apart. Frugal is a tad cheaper, but Midtown sometimes has beers that Frugal does not carry (like Great Divide). The liquor side staff is friendly and shares enthusiasm for beer, even though they donít sell a lot of it. Beer store side has pretty much the same selection as Frugal (see my review for the lines they carry), but they do not break sixers or sell singles. Doníít expect to find any rarities in TN.

The selection of low ABV beers is really quite impressive, along with the selection of beer glasses. But when it comes to the liquor side, where all the gold is, youíll find yourself only getting excited over a handful of beers and end up leaving with nothing.

10/24/13 - In Nashville on business and made this my first stop. No real ambiance to speak of, just a typical bottle shop. Went in the beer store first. Great selection! Had a lot of stuff I did not see elsewhere in Nashville. Numerous breweries represented. You can buy singles from all 6-packs they sell, which is a hige plus! And while they have several coolers full of different beers, they have a far greater selection of warm beers, which is good for the traveler looking to take different beers home. Had several beers in the cooler that I did not see warm though. I ended up spending way more money than I had intended too. Person working the register was friendly and engaged me in small talk. I did not know that Nashville had to separate the higher alcohol beers though and noticed several Stone and Sweetwater bombers in the attached liquor store, neccesitating a visit and additional money spent. The liquor store had a few rows and shelves of higher alcohol content beers, most of which are seasonal, one-offs, and hard to find. Typical, fair prices. Could have easily spend hundreds in these two stores. Great selection and a definite must stop.

Split store - one side handles low(er) alcohol beers and the other side handles high gravity beer, wine, liquor.
Great selection of stuff on shelves, and in coolers. Most likely the best selection in Nashville. Good choice of ciders as well. Fairly knowledgable staff. Low-gravity stuff is available in singles, but high-grav four packs and six packs cannot be split up.

Nice place near downtown with a friendly guy working the counter who let me break up sixers. Landed a bunch of Highland 12-oz. beers and some Thomas Creek, including a new doppelbock, so that only helps to make me smile. Iíd like to think that this is probably as good as it gets in Nashville.

Was in this place mid-day in the middle of the week and the staff was more interested in restocking and dusting shelves than answering questions. Great selection (for TN) on both sides. First time Iíve seen any Highland from NC in mid-TN. Found a 2003 Rogue Old Crustacean tucked in the back of one of the shelves and picked that up. They did have some different stuff than J. Barleycornís. Prices are comparable for those that both carry.
