This is a very nice, up-scale looking store (pair of side-by-side stores, really). Alcohol is pretty well organized, but the beer selection is only slightly above-average overall. Decent British independent and micro selection, average American micro selection, but very sparse in Belgian beers. The beers on the low-alcohol side were generally fresh, though the high-alcohol side had some very old (4 and 5 years) beers that were still full-priced. Service was fairly friendly and helpful.

Above-average for Nashville, but pretty weak compared to the better stores in the south-east.

The big boy in Nashville liquor distribution. Very open and inviting store, but starting to get a little cramped in the high gravity beer area. A very good selection and often has things your local store never got or is already out of. Will be interesting to see how they embrace or ignore the changes in the liquor laws.

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.

This place is absolutely huge but the beer section is just a small corner. It is a little difficult to judge the selection because TN distribution is very thin compared to states I am used to visiting. That said, the selection was pretty good, consisting of the expected southern locals like Sweetwater & Terrapin, locals like Yazoo and the likes of Stone, SN, Laughing Dog, Schlafly, etc.

Prices were good. Service was friendly although not as knowledgeable as I have come to expect at bottle shops.

Rather impressed on my visit when through town on business. Much larger selection here than what is available in Memphis. On liqour store side had some singles and six packs (with no build a six packs of the 12 oz sizes). Had a number of gift sets although it is that time of year. Beer and cigar store side was really good, had good prices on Sam Smith's and the singles although some individual brands might not be priced the best. Beer store side offers build a six packs although they are priced higher as singles. It's been a while since I visited J. Barleycorn's so I can't do a straight comparison but it is also at least somewhat comparable to this store.

This is my "go-to" shop when I stay near downtown Nashville on business. Crazy TN laws require the dual store set up of the higher abv beers from the lower one. Overall, an excellent selection of beers distributed in TN.

I've had some good service from the staff in nearly every visit. Prices are decent, but my only complaint is that they do not offer case pricing, but just simply add up the 6 or 4-pack pricing to get the case price.

Slightly limited selection of imports, but at least they have many of the standard ones. Overall, one of the best shops I've found in Nashville.

Surprised I haven't reviewed this place yet. Firstly, it is the best place in Nashville to buy beer. The low abv side lets you mix six packs and they now have some growler fills. The selections is pretty heavy on both sides. The liquor store side is nice, bright and clean. The only hassle is trying to get into looking at the shelf of Belgians. And they finally blocked their beer from the sunlight. I nearly always get approached by some of the beer loving employees which is nice. The prices are reasonable. Sometimes there are freshness issues. Stone seems to always be in check but Victory really suffers.

Oddly this place is separated into two stores right next to each other. One side sells liquor and high gravity beers and the other sells the other beer. The beer store will let you take any bottles out of any sixer and mix and match your own. The prices are reasonable and selection great. The high gravity beer side has a good selection to and the prices didn't seem to be higher than normal. I really wished you could mix and match six packs in that store though because I could have afforded to try many more beers. All and all if I were in Nashville again this would be the place I would go to get beer to bring home.

Stopped by Midtown while in Nashville for work. Nice selection of lower ABV beers on one side, and bigger beers in with the wine. Pretty good selection of beer here, lots of American Craft brews and Belgians too. The prices might have been a little on the high side from what I'm used to in Washington DC, but they weren't outlandish. Maybe a dollar more per 750ml. The service was great, and the guy I talked to seemed very knowledgeable about the beers they had there. Highly recommended if you're in the Nashville area.

Atmosphere is good for beer. The low ABV side is pretty big and they feature things such as growler fills, seasonal displays and a decent selection of glassware. The high ABV side has beer highlighted well, not just as an afterthought to wine and liquor.

I've never had an issue with quality or outdated beers seen there. Service has always been helpful - I'm always asked if I need help and when I've asked for more information they've always been polite and helpful.

Selection is very good on both sides of the store, and prices seem right in line.

I like their redesigned website and blog, which keeps you up-to-date with new offerings (and pricing!) they carry and some general interest info on various beers and styles.

Midtown has become my favorite store in Nashville.
