This is probably the best bottle shop in Nashville with not only great selection, but knowledgeable staff. They always seem to get a hold of special releases and donít gouge the price - which I appreciate.
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.
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.
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.

Looks like a nice store, big space, lots of beer on the under 6 side, a setup in the corner for over 6 stuff. I was quickly helped to the two cases I was picking up and despite systems being down, my card was run correctly via paper with no issues and boxes helped to my car.
This place has a great selection for the location. I picked up an Ommegang Three Philosophers and a 4 pack of Palo Santo. They had the new Sierra Nevada Anniversary beer. About 25 feet of wall space devoted to craft beer. This place is a good/easy place to stop in and get good product quickly. Employees helpful.
Very good selection of local beers. All the beers in the store were available for pick-a-six. Thatís great one. Knowledge wasnít the best one. Affordable prices. Could visit again.

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.
