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.
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.
Dedicated parking lot right in front. Small market atmosphere, doing construction when I was there. Asked a couple questions. Selection did not seem as good as Frugal Macdoogal a couple miles away. Pricing was good. You can get single bottles out of six-pack that are open, but no single can. I would go back.
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.
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.

Nice store, with 6% plus abv beers in the wine and liquor half, and the under 6 in the separated beer shanty. Both sides have good selection, but high gravity side looks like an afterthought with some of the beer tucked in behind the cash registers and vestibule. Nice and knowledgeable staff. Prices are about what to expect in TN: a bit high, but not ridiculous.
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.
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.
