OK, so this is my favorite place; so the review is biased. Basically, though, this place is the best that the current liquor laws in TN will allow. The regular low gravity side has a dynamic tap list manned by helpful, encouraging staff and sells an extensive selection of standard craft brew fare (to include the newly arrived Founders offerings!). This side is slow and casual during the day (I prefer the solitude of the beer-garten out back), but a busy bustling place at night with several regulars.
To me, though, the star is the high gravity side which sells high gravity beer, wine, and spirits. The staff there treat you like family (assuming your family likes buying booze) and it is always one of my favorite places to visit on a day off or after an early escape from work. Just ask for Ryan or Sean, tell them what you want in general, and they will take care of you well.

Stopped by on my way back to Ohio on I-65. This store is very easy to get to from the interstate, and is definitely worth a stop if you are passing through.

As others have mentioned, due to TN laws, the store is split into two stores. I focused on the high gravity side. Tennessee seems to be just beginning to catch the craft beer wave. There were not many eye-popping selections in this store. However, I was specifically searching for local and regional selections, and I was happy at what I found. Was excited to find Sue from Yazoo City. Also picked up some bottles from the new Cool Springs Brewing, and a few other TN offerings that I look forward to trying. They also had a good selection from Straight to Ale.

The service on the high gravity side was A+. I got some great recommendations ("if you like XYZ, then you should try this one") which I am looking forward to drinking very soon!

I didn't try any of the draft offerings on the low gravity side, but they have pretty good updates on their Facebook page from what I can tell.

Overall, worth a stop if you are looking to find some local and regional beers. Just don't try to compare this to some of the world class bottle shops that you might find a few hours drive away in OH or MI. TN isn't there yet.

Best place in Nashville to buy beer. Both the high and low gravity sides are well-stocked with new, limited, and otherwise great brews. High gravity side is very well curated and is a sure bet to receive any seasonal/annual brews from local and regional favorites. Low gravity side includes both bottles and growler fills from a great tap selection for to go brew, and pints for on premise. Selection is impressive considering the small space and smaller scale of purchasing compared to larger area stores. Service is, bar none, best in town. Employees on both sides of the divide treat people very well and know repeat customers by name. Pricing is in line with the largest stores in town, which is impressive given the small scale of wholesale purchasing happening here.

Crazy to think these guys are just a year old. Great first year, Craft Brewed!
