I had checked Beerfly before my trip, and knew this place was only half a mile from the hotel. Stopped for a couple pints in mid afternoon on a Wednesday. Obviously was very quiet. Waitress/bartender was friendly and helpful when I asked for something local.
Rates a 5 for selection for me - the largest and best tap selection I have ever seen. Great selection, fifty taps and about seventy five bottles, all listed on the menu. They had local beers from Yazoo and Blackstone, plus lots of micros I have only read about but never seen (especially on draft).
Food was average bar food, but was all paired with beer selections on the menu.
Looks like they had proper glasswear for most beers, but my pint was poured into a chilled glass. Prices were good (compared to what I am used to) and I caught happy hour as well.
Another place on my "must go back to" list.

This place has a lot of taps, but you see a lot of familiar beers on tap too. Not an amazing tap list more of the usual suspects if you are from a good distro area you will not be impressed. Also if you don't smoke be prepared you can smoke in here which I miss about bars just seems like a place you should smoke even though I quit quite a while ago. The bartender knew what he had on tap though the only problem frosted shaker pints. I think even though they have a craft list there business thrives on coors and bud. Awesome jukebox great pool tables just a nice place good bar to hit with a bunch of friends.

Had around 50 taps, but the atmosphere is that of a smokey roadhouse pool hall.

Back in college, this was my go-to bar with friends when we were in the 2nd and Lower Broad area (where all the tourists go). Great place to go for some good beer and actually be able to talk with people or play some pool. Watched a few Preds games and enjoy far too many happy hours here. They have great specials that change every so often (we went to a number of "Pint Nights" over the summer where you could get a rare beer and a logo'd pint glass for $4).

Food is bar food. But for bar food, it's fantastic. Admittedly I was always a few beers in whenever I ate, but I was never disappointed. Don't go here for the food, but if you stay long enough it's pretty good, especially compared to the surrounding alternatives that range from $$$$ fancy to $$$ shit (okay, SATCO a few blocks away is solid).

Beer selection changes frequently but always pretty good. Lots of bottles and 20ish taps. You can find a lot of local beer as well as some more foreign (state and country) stuff. Cheap prices on pitchers. Have fond memories of sharing some pitchers of Sam Adam's Imperial Russian Stout here for around $10 a pitcher.

Staff is great. Never had a bad experience. When it's slow they love to talk beer and I've been allowed to sample stuff as well as getting a freebie here and there.

This is a somewhat divey bar with smoking, pool, and southern accents. If you want classy, go to Flying Saucer and pay a little more. But even as a person who hates smoking, sucks at pool, and thanks God every day I managed to grow up in the South without an accent, I do love this bar and look forward to going back me next time I'm in Music City.

While being in town for the East Nashville Beer Festival, I checked out this place last weekend, the night of the festival. Sounding like a good place to get a few craft beers, attended.

Before walking in, just note, this place takes a while to walk to from the bridges or Broadway! Walking down the steps we were met by numerous pool tables and then a cloud of smoke?!?! Oh no! This can't be... Had to stay for a beer at least. This quality is VERY important in a beer bar/restaurant in order for myself to enjoy a good beer. The aroma gets destroyed.

Service was good. Came straight to the bar, was hooked up with a beer menu, ordered and closed my tab. Nothing tough about this transaction.

Their list was great! Offering over 100 beers easily, I went with a Chimay since I've never had this on-tap!?!? How wild.

A nice place to hang out with friends and enjoy beer but I warned you... Smoking is allowed here! Probably won't be coming back because of this reason.

I went to college in Nashville and also lived there for several years afterwards. My Beer Sellar experiences started in the late 90s and lasted five years or so.

It was always a favorite for me and my friends. They ran 2 for 1 specials on Thursdays.

The beer selection is among the best in Nashville, probably only losing out to one or two places that I can think of. There is more than enough to keep you entertained. The draught selection is formidable and they back it up with many bottles as well.

When I used to go, they started a loyalty program where they would check off a card for every draught and every bottle you drank. After filling your card with punches you get a T-Shirt and mug to commemorate your achievement.

We would not get food that much, but we were always pleased with any food we did get. There is a Hooters upstairs that is connected by elevator if you want to arrive in style.

It is a pretty good sized places. It can be hard to get a table or booth if you get there too late at night. There are some pool tables, darts, and sit down racing games that are active throughout the evening. They also have a great jukebox that will allow you to search for the songs you want if they are not already loaded onto the machine.

Overall it's a fantastic spot for a wide beer selection and a fun time. You can also get non beer alcohol too. They do not give you plastic glasses with car bombs or Jager bombs, always the mark of a good establishment.

I wasnt overly impressed with this place. It was definitely easy to find. So I walked in the basement of the building and this dive was what I was given. This place actually reminds me of a place I went to in Savannah, GA, without the nice atmosphere or great service.

One thing I did like about the place was the smell. For some reason, it smelled like pine needles and Christams trees in there. I really love that piney aroma. But the greatness basically ends there.

The selection was decent. There wasnt a whole lot of rare or special stuff. One thing about Nashville is they love Yazoo. That stuff is everywhere! Although Yazoo is ubiquitous here, it is always nice to see a place supporting the local brews. New Belgium, Sam Adams x5, and other basic craft beers.

The service was kind of pathetic. There was some dude working the bar and he was so into the opening day baseball game that I was bascially ignored for about 3 minutes. They had a TV with 6 games going simultaneously so apparently, baseball was more important that business. There were two locals in the bar and me and that was it.

I wouldnt go back. I think the Mojo has better everything with the Flying Saucer being best in selection.

When rating the atmosphere of the Beer Sellar, it's sort of difficult to do. Does a person want a "hole in the wall" feel?? If so, this is excellent for that. It's sort of dingy...heck, it's in a basement. It really doesn't look like a place that'd serve anything high end at all. I think that type of atmosphere is fine...some may dislike it.

The beer list is pretty good. 2nd best in town to Flying Saucer. Prices are resonable...I'd say they're cheaper than FS. Perhaps they're cheaper because of the run down locale, who knows.

This is a welcome change from the honkytonks lining 2nd Avenue. Worth a shot if you don't want all the loud music and tacky decor of the Flying Saucer.

And a cellar it is. Walking just off of the Broadway Strip a couple blocks, turning the corner and finding a true hole in the wall. The door takes me to a sunken dark cellar with a cool, damp, dark feel. On this partiularly hot Nashville day, this atmosphere was quite welcomed.

Past a few pool tables and bar tops, the bar lies just beyond. A well lit bar highlights about 50 taps, majorly craft beers. The New Belgium Eric's Ale and Yazoo IPA that I ordered hit the spot very well and seemed both to be as fresh as could be expected. Other beers that I considered were 3-5 offerings each of Yazoo, Sweetwater, Terrapin, and Lazy Magnolia.

The beers were delivered in the standars 16 oz. shakers. And while the bartender didn't seem to know any details about the beers, she was attentive and courteous (however there were only about five of us in the bar). I asked for a bit more detail on the Yazoo Seasonal and she had no information other than what read on the tap handle.

We did not order food, I'm not certain if they even offer dishes. Because the bar had a smokey aroma from nearby patrons smoking, this didn't seem to be the best atmosphere for true appreciation of food nor the finite aromas of the beers.

After a couple pints, the bar did their job and we are off to other great Nashville beer adventures. The Beer Sellar is definately worth a stop in for any Beer Advocate, as many local beers are well represented. I will likely only revisit if I am simply in the area and thirsty or if my company insists.

I was in Nashville for my brother's graduation, so did not find this place until my last night in the city.

I thought that the atmosphere was your traditional city/college bar feel with a long bar and some tables. They even had some foozball and dart.

The selection was pretty good, with some locals and west coast specials. I even managed to find NBB Fat Tire and Mothership on tap, which were fantastic, as well as some European's you do nto typically find on tap.

The servers were nice, friendly, and responsive. The food was average (but I am especially picky so do not read too much into it).

Nice little hang out in Nashville. Kinda cool place right off the street, dive bar feeling. Overall the quality and selection is not that great. They have a good number of beers, but mostly 'run of the mill.' They had some locals, Arrogant bastard, boulevard, schlafly, etc... Service was good, I sat at the bar and the bartender allowed me to taste a good handful of beers before I committed. She actually had a good idea about beers. I didn't have any food, but I believe they have sandwiches. Nice place to visit if you are near the 2nd and Broadway tourist locale.

This is a favorite stopping point for me in Nashville. Especially on Sundays. Sundays you get two for one. And literally whatever you order they get two glasses out and pour you two beers and hand you two beers. It's wonderful.

They have almost the best beer selection in Nashville. It's a great place to hang with your friends... very casual.

I haven't tried the food here yet so I can't attest to this part. However the jukebox is great... because whatever song they don't have you just download it and that way you really get to hear what you want.

I highly recommend the Beer Sellar. Especially on Sundays!!!

I found what may have been the best spot downtown Nashville. After a unsuccessful trip to Big River, I continued by search for a place to grab a few beers before returning to my resort. I saw the sign on my way into town, and walked by thinking it was a beer store. I took a stroll down Broadway, and on the way back to car, stopped in.

Best decision I ever made. As soon as I walked in I knew this was my kind of place. It had a very low-key atmosphere, perfect for after a 12 hr work day, and 2hr flight. You could tell this was where a lot of true locals hung out, everyone seemed to be having a good time and know each other. I took a seat at the bar, just in front of the epic wall of taps, spotted many great choices. Started off with a Arrogant bastard ale. The bartenders and manager were knowledgeable, welcoming, and attentive. I had a couple pints of local brews, Blackstone and Yazoo. It was great to relax, enjoy and talk beer after traveling. Dana the manager told me about another bar close by, Flying Saucer, that I will check out tonight. As a welcome added bonus, the X Rated Liqueur girls stopped by giving out shirts and stuff. I'm not big into liqueur, but it was pretty decent, and great when bombed with Woodchuck Pear.

Overall I had a great first night in Nashville, without spending a fortune. I will definitely be making a stop in Sunday night before I fly out Monday.

Each year, I make a few trips down to Nashville for various business interactions. On my first trip down, I hit some of the typical places one needs to hit the Nashville experience (just stop a "local" and ask them the top three places that you need to hit and you'll find some typical spots that don't really come up to par...more glitz than what most of us are looking for). Find a true local (not someone "looking to make it"), and chances are, this place will land in the top 5.

While the selection did not match what I've found in other places I've visited, it was a welcome change from establishments that offered beers in cowboy boots.

My friends and spent hours over beers and conversation...being well-attended to by the staff...but not overly bothered. If you're in the heart of Nashville, walk past the wild horse saloon and make your way to the beer sellar.
