Half of Frugal's is for beer, the other half of the store has wine, liquor, and high-gravity beer. The cutoff for the beer side seems to be around 6%. They have a great selection of both high and low abv beers at the lowest prices I've been able to find in Nashville. On the high-abv side they stock plenty of DogfishHead, Stone, Rogue, Terrapin, and several belgians. The beer side of the store has a wide variety of low abv beer with a good selection of the local fare such as Yazoo. The employees are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. This is the place to go if you're looking to buy good beer in Nashville.

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 Keep an eye out for outdated beers, but I haven't had any problems with that lately.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.

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.
