Rather impressed on my visit when through town on business. Much larger selection here than what is available in Memphis. On liqour store side had some singles and six packs (with no build a six packs of the 12 oz sizes). Had a number of gift sets although it is that time of year. Beer and cigar store side was really good, had good prices on Sam Smith's and the singles although some individual brands might not be priced the best. Beer store side offers build a six packs although they are priced higher as singles. It's been a while since I visited J. Barleycorn's so I can't do a straight comparison but it is also at least somewhat comparable to this store.

Really top notch liquor store near Vanderbilt. Two sides. Low gravity side and high gravity side. Very nice store with a wide variety of beer on both sides. Had Green Flash Silva Stout, a lot of Laguintas, Founders, Stone, etc. Was disappointed they did not have more special release beers from the local breweries but they had a lot of their normal offerings. Staff was at least knowledgeable as to where things were located if you asked for something specific. Definitely should have came here first instead of last.

The big boy in Nashville liquor distribution. Very open and inviting store, but starting to get a little cramped in the high gravity beer area. A very good selection and often has things your local store never got or is already out of. Will be interesting to see how they embrace or ignore the changes in the liquor laws.

Stopped in here on the way back to the hotel, heard I may be able to find some local bottles. Atmosphere was standard liquor/bottle shop with people milling around all over the place. Service was decent. Was asked twice if I needed any help, I didn't tho. Quality seemed pretty solid. I checked a few of the bottles and they were all within their dates. Selection was pretty good but I didn't see any local bottles I was on the lookout for which kind of sucked. Only thing I thought about buying was a special sweet water but I decided it wasn't worth it. Prices were reasonable on most, a few were a little overpriced. Overall a good bottle shop overall, just nothing amazing.

Midtown Wine & Spirits is still one of the best places to go to buy beer in the state of Tennessee. The store has a dual liquor store / beer store setup because of the state's laws.

Liquor store (left side): the beer greats you as you walk in...literally, so be careful not to trip over any of it. It appears the beer set up was an after thought for this liquor store as it is all over the place in the front portion of the store. They are somewhat organized by seasonal releases, local, domestic, imports, belgians, etc. The selection is fair, but for TN it is great! The staff is pretty knowledgeable. If you are looking for a high gravity (>6.33%), this is a good place to go.

Beer store (right side): There is a large selection of low gravity beers. Local breweries such as Yazoo and Blackstone are highlighted, as well as many mainstream beers such as RedHook, Leinie's, and Sierra Nevada. There are a few aisles of beer and a cooler. Inside the cooler area, there are 8 taps with mostly local beers. This is an excellent addition since most local TN beers are available only on draft. The store will also let you build your own 6 pack of singles or will suggest a 6 pack of singles from local or seasonal beers. The service is very nice, but not always the most knowledgeable.

I try to stop by when I am in Nashville, but have to remind myself that they are closed on Sundays. I usually pick up the latest seasonal releases from Blackstone or Yazoo and look for anything that I cannot normally get such as Green Man or Schlafly.
