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.

Midtown Wine & Spirits is still one of the best places to go to buy beer in the state of Tennessee. The store has a dual liquor store / beer store setup because of the state's laws.
Liquor store (left side): the beer greats you as you walk in...literally, so be careful not to trip over any of it. It appears the beer set up was an after thought for this liquor store as it is all over the place in the front portion of the store. They are somewhat organized by seasonal releases, local, domestic, imports, belgians, etc. The selection is fair, but for TN it is great! The staff is pretty knowledgeable. If you are looking for a high gravity (>6.33%), this is a good place to go.
Beer store (right side): There is a large selection of low gravity beers. Local breweries such as Yazoo and Blackstone are highlighted, as well as many mainstream beers such as RedHook, Leinie's, and Sierra Nevada. There are a few aisles of beer and a cooler. Inside the cooler area, there are 8 taps with mostly local beers. This is an excellent addition since most local TN beers are available only on draft. The store will also let you build your own 6 pack of singles or will suggest a 6 pack of singles from local or seasonal beers. The service is very nice, but not always the most knowledgeable.
I try to stop by when I am in Nashville, but have to remind myself that they are closed on Sundays. I usually pick up the latest seasonal releases from Blackstone or Yazoo and look for anything that I cannot normally get such as Green Man or Schlafly.
