Located just inside the city limits of Johnson City, on the left if you're coming from Elizabethton, this place is liquor first and beer a distant second. The beers are located to the right as you walk in the store and take up only a few small shelves. The selection is average at best. Basically, some Belgians from Chimay, Duvel and Huyghe. British beers were represented by Sam Smith IS and a few bottles of Thomas Hardy. I also saw Celebrator doppelbock. American micros were mainly represented by DFH and Stone. I didn't see any Tennessee beers, which is disappointing. On the plus side, service was quite good. The lady at the counter said the store was trying to increase their beer selection, but she admitted that sales of craft beer were quite low and she didn't think they would get much more. I did manage to score some stuff from Stone, which is not distributed in my home state, and I snagged a few bottles of Dogfish Head WWS, which I can't get because of the high alcohol content. At least the trip wasn't a complete waste.

As others have stated this is more of a liquor store, but they have one of the best selections of bourbons and rums around. I cannot get this stuff in my home state due to the decision making of the state ABC board vs. Tennessee which has a privatized policy, which can be good and bad. Anyway, they do have some things I cannot find in my state in the beer department. I got some really nice beers from Innis and Gunn. Although these are not beers I would drink on a daily basis they are pretty interesting and for whatever reason I cannot find them in my state. I only gave this store an average selection rating but that is strictly based upon the beer selection. If you are looking for a great whiskey or anything really, they will probably have it or try to get it. The service is outstanding and the people working there know there stuff. I almost always stop by this place if I am in the area. Maybe one day they will expand to a more beer centric market and have a store similar to Libation Station on the other side of town. I think these guys would do a phenomenal job if they did.

This place is located right off of I26 in Johnson City. I was doing business in Jonesborough and decided to stop in the area for lunch and a peek at the beer.
The selection, I have to say, is quite limited. The quality of the beer was very nice, but there were only about 20 different beers. Stone, DFH, Delirium; I was really looking for some local stuff like Yazoo or Mountaineer and neither were there. They did have DFH Red and White, Red White and Blue, and Palo Santo, along with the requisite Stone Arrogant, Bastard, Ruination, and IPA.
There is a grocery store down the street called Value City that has your typical beer selection with some decent stuff. Here you will find only high priced specialty items and no local or regional craft beers.

I was going to Bristol and went out of the way a little to get to this place. I was a little dissapointed in the selection. There really was not that much here. But based on previous reveiws I suspect it could have been a while since they restocked. The prices seemed a bit high. The service was about typical for a liqour store. But someone did offer to help if I needed it. I would stop in here again if I was out looking for Stone products. This store also had a neat looking cellar but it had a gate across the entrance. I would have liked to explored that a little.

A sign on the door says that this place has the best beer selection in the South. I hope not. Beer covers only about two meters on five shelves in one corner of the rather large store. Granted, what is there is very impressive (no macros at all), but there were definitely less than 50 varieties available, and possibly less than 30. Belgians were well represented, with a few Germans and a couple of Brits thrown in. There weren't many American micros - basically just stone and Doghish. Sure, I dropped over $100 bucks in the place, but that's not hard given the high prices and Tennessee's astronomical sales tax.
A previous reviewer lamented a lack of IPAs here. That was not the case during my visit today. Ruination, 90-minute and a few others were there. I had been hoping for Westy, but was disappointed. Sure, this may be the best selection in the Tri-cities area, but I was disappointed by the lack of anything local (no TN, no NC, no VA) as well as the very small amount of overall shelf space dedicated to beer. Oh well.

Frankly, I was surprised at the Belgian selection when I stopped by this liquor store on 9/10/04. Several Belgians I had never heard of, or seen anywhere else, in addition to a nice array of Chimay, Corsendonk, and Rodenbach. Also, a few Austrian, and German varieties were on the clean, shelves, including Uerige. Dogfish Head was well represented, with the exception of their IPAs. They had a few bottles of 2003 Worldwide Stout, as well as 7 other varieties. Stone was represented by Arrogant Bastard, Old Guardian, and Ruination. There were several varieties of Mendocino beers, as well. The staff was helpful and informative, pointing out that a QuikMart, nextdoor stocked a few Rogues, and Lambics that were below 6% abv, in accordance with Tennessee's strange law requiring 6% and over beers to be sold only in liquor stores. An excellent shopping experience, overall, and I left without purchasing a few, new, Belgian ales because I had already exceeded my budget. Most of their strong beer customers come from North Carolina, and get a 10% discount. When I told them that I traveled even farther, from Kentucky, I got the discount, as well. This is not a cheap place, and Tn has a 9% sales tax. The Belgian variety makes this place worthy of a trip, as well as the DFH brews I haven't seen elsewhere in several months.

For East Tenn.this is not a bad store they have a greater selection of 6% beers then anyone else I have seen in Eastern Tenn. they are little more pricey then others and some of there beer has been on the shelf for a while probably not problem with higher abv they carry. They carry Stone the ones we are allowed in Tenn, Dogfish Head sadly none of the IPA's I have asked but was told the distributers in Tenn could not get it because they already sell everything they are making :( They also carry one of my favorites Unibroue plus Chimay and several other Belgians. It is right off I-26 so anyone traveling that way sould stop buy they have billboards up.

One-Stop is located just off the freeway/interstate in Johnson City. I was pointed to this place by the brewer at the Sophisticated Otter.
They have as good a selection of above 6% beers as you find anywhere. The service was average since all you get is a cashier at a counter. The quality appeared ok with a little dust on a few bottles, but the selection was better than some of the stores in places like Knoxville and Nashville.
I went to the beer store next door and found nothing but BMC so for the higher gravity beers One-Stop is the place to go. Unfortunately in JC there is no great place for the lower gravity beers so the best bet, maybe the only bet, might be Kroger since they allow single bottle selections.
If I find myself back in JC, I will hit the One-Stop again for the big brews since it has a good selection and is pretty much the only game in town...
