“Visited on a Sunday later afternoon. The beer selection is in the left front corner of the store. The rest is dedicated to other things like wine, liquor, cigars, and so on. Most of the beer selection is in 4 and 6 packs, but there is a decent size selection for mix packs, just not everything is available that way. Service is decent. I was mostly left alone as I perused. I would definitely stop in again if I was in Murfreesboro again.“

“Visited on a Sunday evening. There was a wedding I attended here, so it was a bit of a special occasion and things may not be how they normally are. The draft list was pretty nice. Lots of interesting styles available. Other than the initial rush to the bar after the ceremony, the service was pretty good. I would be interested in stopping in on a normal occasion some day.“

“Liquor store with a nice beer selection. They also offer growler fills. The beer is probably 25% of the square footage but it’s a large store. Employees are friendly and knowledgable. I try to stop by anytime I’m in town.“

“Been here a few times, love the tap room. It’s in an old building with a lot of exposed bricks. Good beers and the usually have a food truck right outside.“

“It should be noted that my rating of Stones River Total Beverages is in comparison to other stores in Murfreesboro only. Let’s face it--It wouldn’t be fair to compare any store in a town of 200,000 to something like Binny’s in Chicago. That being said, Stones River Total Beverages is, hands down, the BEST beer store in Murfreesboro. They have the widest selection of both "standard" and high-grav beer, and the service is great. If they don’t have something you want, tell the staff, and they’ll see if they can get it for you. They’re friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable, and they always have a beer expert on site--which isn’t always the case in liquor stores.“

“If you’re looking for authentic Chicago-style pizza, you’re barking up the wrong tree. That’s not to say that the pizza isn’t good; it certainly is. Just don’t expect Giordano’s or Gino’s East, and you’ll be satisfied. However, if you’re looking for a pretty solid selection of craft beer, Old Chicago in Murfreesboro has got you covered. They’ll always have several local beers on tap, and they rotate seasonally. One bonus is that they offer $1.75 10 oz. drafts on Mondays, and that includes craft! The bottle selection is impressive, too, although I’ve never actually ordered one because the draft options are numerous enough to keep me occupied. Service has always been friendly but a bit scattered at times. Also, the World Beer Tour program is a major cause of confusion. Almost without fail, my server has gotten something wrong when trying to add my beers to my WBT record. Therefore, my advice is to enjoy the beer and forget the so-called "importance" of the WBT.“

“This is a fabulous store. My husband and family had been trying to find gerst yazoo beer. Robert was able to help us and many others. He is also great with suggestions for beverages and combinations. He is great and we say Thank You.“

“Great place to browse bottles while the significant other shops. A great selection for most purposes. TN stores can’t sell high gravity beers in grocery stores so they do have limitations, but those are statewide. There aren’t many places in town that allow you to build your own 6 or buy singles with the ease and comfort that World Market does. This is certainly the cleanest place to buy beer in the Boro. The staff knowledge is hit or miss. Some of them love beer, some just aren’t interested. The ones that do love beer know a lot. I’ve left this store with several recommended bottles that I ended up loving. They even do tastings some weekends and you can get free samples of multiple beers. You can’t go wrong with free beer. Someone was looking for Gluten free beer last week in the store; World Market carries Widmer Brother’s Omission brews. There is both the lager and pale ale. For gluten free beers they are really good. Plus they have all the ciders.“

“I have been here a few times. They have a decent selection of beer. Only negative would be they can only serve beer under 6%. I have always had great service, everybody there knows their beer. It is smokey, but it is a cigar bar, you expect that.“

“First time I’ve been to Old Chicago. I went to the bar, ordered a Pipeline porter and ordered the Pizza Buffet. The Bar tender asked if I knew where to go for the Buffet, after telling her I have never been there , she took me right to it. They might not have the selection of the flying saucer, but it is decent.“

“Located in the square, this is a local joint that is focused on two things- cigars and beer. Extensive list of session craft beers that include DFH, Yazoo, Terrapin, Schlafly, as well as European beers. They only have four taps, and they serve the beer in red hefty cups! Not a great way to serve beer, as I don’t think they have ANY glassware. Also- the bar is VERY smoky- but it is a cigar bar as well. Crowd seems to be mixed, but grows younger as it gets later. Good beer selection for M’boro, but not an optimum environment to enjoy craft beer. I did enjoy the visit.“

“Pretty nice little chill out spot- very college town looking. 100+ bottles, and the four taps i saw weren’t impressive. Bottles didn’t seem to be any rarities either, but lots of craft staples. Still, a great place to chill.“

“Huge selection of craft beer all under the 6% mark. Foreign and domestic with growler and gallon fills from their tap system. They have $10 gallon fills of PBR available. A must stop on the way out fishing/to the pool or on the way home from work. Open Sunday!“

“I don’t understand why this is considered a beer store - but it’s on here, I’ve been there, and I’ve got my two cents to give. Two aisles devoted to beer from around the world in singles. All under 5% abv. Lots of Left Hand and other greats. I always pop into this area when I’m stuck shopping with a female. I like that World Market has the beer section - it’s an opportunity for people who wouldn’t normally pick it up in a grocery store - to see craft beer as a new an interesting culinary art form to consider - but for beer geeks it’s nothing special.“

“Just got back from the Mellow Mushroom in Murfreesboro. I am a veteran of Mellow Mushroom Lexington’s Trivia, (Lexington, KY). I sought out the trivia as a means to spend an evening with my girlfriend after a long day of work. We both appreciate our local Mellow Mushroom establishment. We both feel Mellow Mushroom, hands down, has the most delicious pizza in the world. The dough is to die for! Lately, the Philosopher’s Pie has become an obsession for our tastebuds. (During the month of July, purchase of a large pie entitles you to a free, small cheese pizza). -This is pretty awesome! In the beer realm, Mellow Mushroom Murfreesboro is no exception and lacks not in the beer department. Dogfish Head 60 Minute, local Yazoo favorites and other great craft brews flow from their taps. But the trivia SUCKS. The trivia hosts had no music, no enthusiasm and no respect for the game. A scorecard was passed out at the begining of trivia, needless to say, the trivia hosts failed to ask the allotted halftime question or final round of questions. - Using the halftime question as an opporunity to consume a large sandwich, stating, "When I finish this sandwich, we will continue playing trivia." As we finished our craft beer and Philosopher’s Pie and walked out the door, the final question consisted of teams guessing the name of a song the trivia host played two seconds of...from a cell phone! Probably won’t be back as long as the current lame hosts are at the wheel. Still love the pizza!“

“I stopped in here on my way through Tennessee. A little ways off the interstate exit 78 toward the Boro. I walked into what was the grossest fug smell in the doorway. It stank like sour cleaning fluid and sweat. Gross. I sat in the bar area. Typical sports bar feel - large TV’s, pool tables, about 25 taps. 20+ Macro taps: Bud/Miller/Coors and at most 4 taps devoted to all of America’s craft beer. Yazoo Hop Project, Dogfish Head 90, Boulder Kinda Blue, and BBC. The selection was pretty limiting. I asked for a Dogfish 90 and the bartender said it was out - no indication from the tap handle - they could put a cup over it/take it off/do something so people know it’s empty. Which made me think they probably had another keg in their back cooler but he just hadn’t gotten around to changing it yet. I got a Boulder Kinda Blue and a BBC American Pale ale and ordered their stromboli. My friend ordered a soup and salad entree. The bartender ran our orders back to the kitchen and returned with my friends salad - a classic restaurant habit if someone orders a salad before their main entree - however the salad was their main entree. I sat their waiting on my stomboli. When it arrived it was gushing with watery innards of pre-frozen italian sausage/ pre frozen veggies - the middle was cold and the outside was too crispy - my meal had been made in a factory somewhere else. It was defrosted when I ordered it and paid 8.99 for it. What does this place think? I could go to Mellow Mushroom across town and get better quality for cheaper. Very disappointing. The bartender was preoccupied for most of the meal even though I stopped between lunch and dinner shifts. The place was pretty much empty. I had several friends recommend this place to me because they know I like craft beer. This place was a disappointment, you win some you lose some I guess! Still looking for a good craft beer place in Middle Tennessee/Nashville/Bowling Green area.“

“Pretty nice store for Murfreesboro. Very cool that you can make a mixed sixer for $11 out of any thing in six packs. Have high gravity brews next door as well. What I really like was the growlers of Yazoo brews to go. Very cool little store.“

“Best place to get >6.2% in the Boro. Not much ambiance, just your typical mid size liquor store. The beer guy Andy is always friendly and will even hold back beers for you to pick up. They pretty much get the same beers as Frugal and Midtown in Nashville. Expect to find Belgian and European strongs, as well as domestics from Jolly Pumpkin, Victory, Terrapin, DFH, Schlafly, North Coast, Stone, etc. If you are in the area, it’s worth a stop and not very far off I-24.“

“This is the best place I have ever been as far as beer is concerned. they have a great selection of high gravity beers and regular beers. The wine manager Andy is by far the most knowledgeable person I have talked to about beer. Very friendly staff, laid back atmosphere. I saw the comments about higher prices, but for what you get, I think it’s worth it. I actually drive past another liquor store to get to Stones River.“

“Another one of those places you tell your wife or other half that you would be glad to go to with her but then you can disappear over to the beer area for a few selections of your own. An ok selection here. Some Bombers, 6-packs, 12 oz singles, Brewery variety packs, and store packed mixed 10 packs (one they call Beer of the World and the other is Summer Beer Pack which is full of hefe’s, fruity hefe’s, and other fruity beer all the women in the area are starting to go for). It’s all under 6% stuff. Prices are comparable or slightly lower than Stone River down the road ($1.89 for a single 12 oz on this visit). The service is always friendly and helpful but not overly beer knowledgeable. A few isles over from the beer you can get chocolate, candy, and spices from around the world which is kind of cool too!“

“I’ve been a fan of Mellow Mushroom since first having their pizza way back in the 70’s near the Ga Tech campus. Their restaurants have steadily gone upscale in design (nouveau hippie?), but the food remains tasty and healthful. The greek salad is always a favorite of mine, and the mega veggie pizza is also very good. Great sandwiches. Nothing goes better with pizza than a good beer from the tap, and they have a nice selection.“

“When I first moved here 1 1/2 years ago, I was told Stone’s River beverage was the best place for microbrews. They do have the advantage of carrying higher gravity brews on the liquor side of their store, but for overall beer selection, the Beer Depot is #1. They carry Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA, and other high quality and hard to find beers, such as the excellent Cantillion Rose de Gambrinus. Beer Depot has also started selling growlers of a few beers they have on tap. Nifty!“

“This is basically like all the others in the chain. They have a hippie bus parked in the middle of the restaurant. I would love to get tanked and pretend to drive it. Beer selection is quite serviceable. Taps from BBC (including the Jefferson reserve), Boulder, Blackstone, Yazoo. . .decent stop. I didn’t eat at this location.“

“This place has beer, smokes, and porn mags. Pretty much the one stop for a party in the boro. I’ve probably never seen so many 6% abv. beers in one store in TN before. I was surprised to see Cantillon here. Prices are fair. My main concern would be with such a massive selection and the clientele shopping here, how old are these things? All the brews we picked up were just fine though. Apparently the place to go to get beer here.“

“kick ass beer selection with friendly and helpful service. new brews most of the time are offered. i’ve found that if it is available anywhere in mid-tn, you can find it here. the create-your-own option is nice too, as i don’t always want to commit myself to an entire 6 of the same. also, the prices are very reasonable. great location too.“

“the selection is extensive for a restaurant which prides itself on non-traditional pizza. bottles include a few HG’s, and it’s a good mix. you don’t walk in there and look for the closest representation of a craft brew, you actually have to decide how ya feel. i even find myself having to choose a style and then have to narrow it down. the food’s great. i usually chill out on the patio, but only b/c i’m not just there for the beer and good live music. the only drawback is the service. it’s a great place aside from the idea that if you go there, don’t plan on being in and out in less than an hour or 2. i’ve been there many times, and had many different servers (both inside and the patio), but i always spend more time there than i wish to. still, the beer is always great.“

“The best bar in the boro. they have a great selection, including the occasional seasonals. the atmosphere is relaxing, though i still haven’t made up my mind how i feel about the jukebox issue. you can come in play some cards, dominoes, or darts; or you can just go grab a beer and relax...it’s very diverse. the great thing is that every now and then, they’ll have a tasting. service is friendly and fairly quick, unless it’s a weekend night. last call comes a bit early for the late night crowd, but other than that, liquid smoke has created a pretty kick-ass spot. the cigar selection is more than adequate, and the bathroom is unlike that i’ve ever seen before, especially in a bar. kudos for that. it’s defintely a frequented place for my friends and i. I just wish they had high gravities.“

“Friendly and knowledgeable, but sometimes contradicting. They helped me get setup kegging. I’ve seen prices increase there quite a bit though. Home brewing should save (some) money... but unfortunately does not with their prices. This is even after buying all equipment and not considering this in the price. I’m a little disappointed int his aspect. Online I guess is still the way to go unless you need it NOW.“

“By far this is the best on tap selection in Murfreesboro. Service at the bar is good. Food is not too bad. Ambiance might be a little too much like a pizza place instead of brew pub. I’m sure this is by design though... stick to the bar area and you’ll be fine though. :)“

“There isn’t a better place to just go chill in the middle of the afternoon. They have a few hundred types of beer in bottles and a few select brew on tap. The eclectic nature of the place makes the ambiance close to the best in Murfreesboro. They also have a great assortment of smokes. Free internet on site. They are always friendly and have great prices on "to go" bottles. So, if you’re looking to try a bunch of different types of beer. I suggest getting a sampler bottle pack to go so you don’t have to pay bar prices.“

“Discovered this one on accident taking a short cut this afternoon near MTSU. This place has one of the biggest under 6% selections I’ve seen in TN so far. Big line up of Rogue’s, lots of locals and regionals, some nationals and globals. Prices seem to run about the same as the rest of the area. He will not let you mix you own sixer from every thing in the store but does have a selected area that you can mix sixers or buy single 12 oz’ers. The guy behind the counter was very friendly and happy to answer questions about the place.“

“Was here on a Sunday night and damn...a live band on a Sunday night in the Boro! Food is the usual MM menu which is pretty decent. They had 40ish beers listed on tap and 32 listed available in bottles on the menu. Decent selection of Yazoo, plus some Blackstone, Highland, Sweetwater, and Sam Smiths to list a few of the highlights. Our waitress jacked up our food order but was very friendly, knew the seasonal offerings, and got the beer orders right.“

“One of the better selections in Murfreesboro (not saying much). Long, thin bar on the square so you can start here and walk to another few bars if you get bored. Not a smoker, but it appears to have a decent selection of cigars and cigarettes which can cause it to get pretty smoky. But hey, it is in the name so what do you expect. Small place so service is not usally an issue.“
