I've had many an excursion to Frugal's.
This is the best selection of spirits in Nashville and the best prices. Wine is pretty good. Beer is pretty good. Growlers are nice, but selection and number could be better (or maybe I'm just spoiled).
Staff is generally helpful, though some of the checkout people aren't the best. Only bad experience was being told my credit card "wasn't accepted" by some little old lady running the register when it didn't swipe initially. Used a different card and left. Forgot to pick up something, came back in, went to the other register, used the "unaccepted card" with no problems and I still use it to this day. But I've only seen her working once and she was polite enough about it, so I can't be too miffed. Other staff was more helpful, especially in selection and recommendations.
This is the place to go in Nashville before a party or some similar evening of debauchery.

They had a good selection, almost great. A little hard to find things, and there were two sections, one for liquor and one for beer. However, the famous 'Sue' porter I was looking for was in the liquor section, along with some other great beer finds. A little disorganized, the staff were somewhat distant in person, but helpful over the phone. A great selection for the area, and reasonable prices.

I live about an hour and a half drive from this store, but make an occasional trip up this way since they have access to some things I can't get locally especially Stone, Brooklyn Brewery, and Lagunitas.
Selection is decent although stock is spotty at times. I was after some Lagunitas Capachino Stout today, but they were out. Also out of Sucks, and Stone Imperial Stout. I did manage to leave with a big box of good stuff and $100 lighter.
Staff was friendly and helpful, and store is well organized. I wish they offered more singles. Most of the 12 oz bottles are 4 and 6 pack only.

Frugal has made some real efforts in the last several years. As everywhere else in TN, they have a separate low alcohol beer store and the higher (over 6.2%) beers are in the liquor store. They have expanded their high ABV beers to include pretty much everything available in Nashville. Recently they added Green Flash, Laughing Dog, SN (Hoptimum!, Torpedo in Cans!) and also have the high end brews for Victory and Stoudts. Also they have some relatively rare Avery Old Jubilation, which I enjoyed last winter.
The low ABV has singles and growlers. The selection of growler brews are very solid and change often. Their website is not always updated timely, but they update their twitter as to the growler selection and new brews.
Pricing is very good (for Tennessee) and the staff is reasonably helpful but could stand for improvement. Keep an eye out for outdated beers, but I haven't had any problems with that lately.

I've been along time shopper at Frugal's and have noticed their staff is more knowledgable than in the past few years. They have had growler fills for a few months and are up to six handles. They also just started a "buy 10 fills, get 1 fill free" program. You just have to provide your email address, they send you updates about new arrivals and rotating tap handles. The high alcohol section seems to have expanded, but still tucked away in the back corner with the box wine and no cold beers.
Great prices and, if you catch the right person, very knowledgable staff.

Been awhile since I have been here. This is the second best place to buy beer in Nashville but it is far behind Midtown. The selection is okay. The atmosphere is kind of run down and you feel like you are on the wrong side of town if you know what I mean. The bottles seem to gather a lot of dust. Low abv does not let you mix six packs as far as I remember. No growler fills that I know of. The location is pretty easy to find. Prices are great and selection is pretty good but like I said. It is number 2.

When I lived in Nashville I loved shopping at this store. It was the best selection of beer in Nashville that I knew of. There was never anything I wanted that I couldn't get here.
I remember there being ample parking and it wasn't too hard to get to. I lived about three miles west of Vanderbilt.
When I lived in Clarksivlle I would stop at Frugal most of the time when I was down in Nashville for the weekend so I could stock up on great stuff less available in the smaller towns/cities.
It was a busy store but I never had to wait in line too long and everything was nicely bagged and boxes as appropriate.
The liquor selection was very good too. I wasn't into wine at the time so I can't comment on how well they do in that department.

I stopped in 6 places in Nashville to shop for beer and this place was the best of them. The selection was still bad compared to any other state but that is the problem with Tennessee I guess! The service was good and the folks there were very friendly. I lucked out and managed to find a few gems but the way their selection is set up was confusing and disappointing. If you're in Nashville this is a great place to hit as it had basically everything you can get in the state. I would recommend it.
