Probably my favorite place to stop in if I want a beer and just look over some homebrewing equipment in one go. They have a large, rotating blackboard of what is on tap, and it's largely local, so when you go in it's most assuredly different than the last time. Their homebrew section is *almost* there, just lacking in a few items. Right now they have a ton of used kegs. Their website is pretty useless. :-) Be careful about homebrewing advice from the staff; I feel like some of them are not up to snuff.

this place has an amazing selection for what Tennessee is allowed to have for distro. Place was very well organized guy behind the counter on high gravity side was amazingly and I do say amazingly friendly and knowledgable. the low gravity side you can either pound some brews or tap take home. Very nice place a testament to how a well ran beer store should look like.

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.
