In Nashville, there are two stores which pretty much fight for the crown of selling the best selection of liquor and beer...Frugal MacDoogal and Midtown. When it comes to beer, Midtown wins in a landslide, at least for me.

The under 6 percent side of the store seems pretty woeful to me. It's probably only half the size of Midtown's and certainly isn't better than J Barleycorn's. Not only that but their selection of singles for sampling is pretty poor and you can't break the 6 packs to do so.

On the other side, for higher ABV brews, the selection is fair and at least I can say that the prices for a few brews did beat Midtown by a little bit.

Overall, I just don't think it's near the best place in town and it certainly isn't flexible about singles.

Good selection but I think they were understaffed the day i went in. Good growler selection too.

It was a Saturday pm and the shelves where out or low. Went to find Yahzoo Sue and they said they where out. They had a big store and a big section on beer, but it was not stocked. It would have been nice to know when the next shipment of Sue was coming in , but they acted like they did not care.

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'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.

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.
