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 I’ve 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.
Stopped in here on the way back to the hotel, heard I may be able to find some local bottles. Atmosphere was standard liquor/bottle shop with people milling around all over the place. Service was decent. Was asked twice if I needed any help, I didn’t tho. Quality seemed pretty solid. I checked a few of the bottles and they were all within their dates. Selection was pretty good but I didn’t see any local bottles I was on the lookout for which kind of sucked. Only thing I thought about buying was a special sweet water but I decided it wasn’t worth it. Prices were reasonable on most, a few were a little overpriced. Overall a good bottle shop overall, just nothing amazing.
Great store decent selection. It is annoying to have to use 2 stores to get beer in Tennessee. That is not the stores fault.

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.
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. I’d like to think that this is probably as good as it gets in Nashville.
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, you’ll find yourself only getting excited over a handful of beers and end up leaving with nothing.

Stopped in while in Nashville this week... annoying TN problems aside (high abv stuff is in the liquor store portion and the lower beer is in the beer side.) You can split sixers, mix and match, find some good locals and decent import selection, but this is just another beer store.
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.
