Low alcohol side of the store is mostly six packs with a couple of refrigerator shelves of bombers. This side doesnít take AmEx, while the high alcohol side does. Donít even try to figure out Tennessee alcohol laws. The high alcohol side has a fair selection of local and Belgians, all crammed into a small space directly in the front window behind the cash registers. An earlier post claims the shades are drawn to keep the sunlight off the beer, but I didnít see it on two sunny afternoon trips I made there. Those poor beers were cooking! As this was the best beer selection I found in Nashville, I ended up driving to Bowling Green for beer that is properly cared for. If, on the other hand you are looking for Bourbons, Midtown has a beautiful display of those in the center of the store.

In town for a conference and looking for some east coast beers. They had a decent selection and the staff was friendly but seemed that they had more wine than beer knowledge. I found a few bottles worth taking home. I didnít realize until later (and no one there mentioned it) they had a lower alcohol side. Luckily I figured it out before leaving TN. Stupid alcohol laws.
Both sides of this store are impressive. Terrific selection. They also seem to get new beers and seasonals before anyone else (they had celebration ale in October!) Some of the lowest prices Iíve seen in Nashville, especially on the low alc side. they also break sixers. The high alc side has a daunting selection of wines. I was a little concerned that they kept some of their beers on display in the front window, but after talking with a clerk, he assured me that they pulled the blinds before the sunlight could ever touch the beer. Great store.
Great service on both sides of this easy to find store. Swung by here last weekend while in town for a wedding. Selection was great and complete with locals like Yazoo and Regionals like Schafly, Bluegrass and some other things not distributed further south like Boulevard. Let me break their six packs which totally made my day. Also had some pre-mixed sixers by style if you are interested in that. Awkward layout but the service and selection would keep me going back here.
Wandered into this place after finding it on RB. Several of the other reviewers have hit the point on the head. The beer side has the same selection, at roughly the same prices as does Frugal MacDoogalís and J. Barleycornís. The liquor side had several things that neither of the other stores had. Prices were average to high, but that is typical of Nashville. Worth a trip to get some different beers at this location.
Despite being a little easier to find, I donít think that Midtown has the selection that Frugals does. They donít have anywhere near the selection of singles and the beer on the liquor side is in a awkward place right next to the windows. That said they did have stuff that Frugals doesnít so it is worth a trip to both.
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.

Very good beer store in Nashville. On the "right hand side" where most of the beer is located, I could not find any singles, but when I asked the clerk if we could split the 6-packs he obliged, which was a good decision because I would have bought 1 6-pack otherwise, but instead I boght about 30 individual bottles. Good selection, I even found some things from Colorado and Maine that I hadnít had, and the Terrapin was nice to finally get ahold of. Very close to Blackstone Brewery.
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.
