Anyone who knows Tennessee knows how lame the beer is here, but this place has the best selection i've seen. They have combined under 6% beer on one side and the "big beer" on the other side, you can get all your beer in one place. The service there is outstanding, the people who work there love beer and know quite a bit about it. I would highly recommend this place and will be going back, just wish it wasnt three hours away. They also have a pretty good cigar selection. They also have growlers of different beers they have selected from local and other microbrews.

In my opinion, easily the best selection in Nashville. On the big beer/liquor side they have a pretty good, if small, selection of DFH, Rogue, and Stone brews in addition to some bigger Belgians. On my last visit I was able to pick up a sixer of Celebration for ten bucks, which I thought was fair, Old Crusty, Ruination, Double Bastard. I knew what I was looking for, but the cashiers were happy to help and chatted my old man and me up while we shopped. The amazing thing is how much the staff seemed to know about their product; my dad knows wine as well as I try to know beer, and the same guy was giving us a lot of input and displaying an impressive knowledge of both Italian red vintages and what makes Old Crusty so great.
Over on the smaller beer side there's a solid selection of sixers in addition to some mixed-sixers being sold by style. Some of these mixes looked like they'd be good choices if you were trying to get a solid survey of the style.

The service was incredible. The guy was extremely helpful. When he saw that I was looking for good beer, he brought me a few bottles that weren't on the shelves and recommended a few of his personal favorite brews. He seemed very knowledgeable about craft beer. He even helped me carry my huge haul to my car. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in Nashville. I was able to pick up some limited releases from Boulevard and Schlafly as well as some good brews from Yazoo and O'fallon. They have a high gravity email newsletter and offered to hold bottles for me.

This store is actually two stores built into one. On the left side is the "store" devoted to liquor and wine, and higher alcohol content beers (I believe above 6.3%). On the right side, there is a "store" devoted to beers below 6.3%.

Their selection on the higher content side was adequate. They had an excellent selection of Terrapin beers and they had excellent prices on DFH as well. They featured several large shelves of bombers against the walls and tiny islands of craft beer as well, near the exit. The one downside is that not very many of their more expensive beers were offered cold. One of the employees, a man probably in his upper twenties, was very knowledgeable and had some very good suggestions.

Their selection on the lower content side was pretty extensive. They had beers from the local Yazoo! Brewery as well as breweries from North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, California, and Georgia. They have two stand alone wooden shelves that have random beers from all over. Their cooler area has a good many of these beers cold as well as a few others. They also have a wrap around shelf that runs along the back left side of the store. Perhaps the best part of this store was that you are allowed to make a six pack of whatever you want. I ended up filling three six packs up with random singles and they weren't more than $2.20/bottle.

I'd highly recommend trying out this location. It's got a vast array of beers, especially under 6.3% on the the right side of their store.

One of my favorite shops in Nashville, prime location, definetly recomend it to visitors. If it comes to Nashville, they get it. The store itself gives 80% of its space to wine and liquor, but they do pack in a lot of quality beer in a relatively small area. This makes it a bit unorganized, but its worth taking your time to really look around. Everything bottled (normal 6 pack style) is available in singles, cans unfortunately not.

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.

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 08/06/05 on my way through Nashville. Thought I'd died and gone to Stone heaven. Picked up Old Guardian, Vertical Epic 05/05/05, 2005 Imperial Stout, Ruination and a 6 pack of IPA. As others have said, selection is limited but it was worth the stop for the Stone selection alone. I was really tempted to pick up the Flying Dog Gonzo Smoked Porter but at $19 a bottle (almost $100 for the signed version) I decided to pass. They also had a few bottles of the DFH World Wide Stout. I had purchased one of these previously and have yet to try it so I passed on that this time around.
The under 6% beer side of the place has quite a selection (for Tennessee). Lots of Rogue brews. I had stopped specifically to pick up a case of Brutal Bitter which unfortunately is not available in the Memphis area.
I would highly recommend stopping if you are in the area. I'll soon need to find a reason to get back that way for some more Brutal Bitter.

For the amount of space this place dedicates to beer on the liquor store side they pack in some awesome beers. I think the fact that they have to split up the under 6% and over, makes it seem like all they have is awesome beer. I didn't visit the other side as I spent all my budget very quickly.

I picked up 3 bottles of Terrapin Depth Charge, a Schlafly Reserve Imperial Stout(they had the barley wine too), and a bottle of Sixth Glass from Boulevard.

They had a great selection of Boulevard and Schlafly. A nice selection of Belgians, but other Europeans were a little under represented.

Overall a very nice store that was easy to access from the interstate. It's nice that they can offer both <%6> beers as not all places in TN can do so. silly laws

Midtown is close to downtown, is very clean and not sketchy for the area, and they have a great beer selection. Make sure you check both sides because TN has ridiculous alcohol laws if you didn't know. They could have a better selection of singles on the low ABV side, but they have some great choices in the liquor part. Many different Belgian and Trappist beers, and very reasonably priced for the area. In terms of employees, I have never asked many questions of the people working there, but they were helpful enough with the few questions I did have. Decent place.

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.

Located just off the interstate. Easy to get in and out of and looks new and clean. Due to weird TN laws, the low ABV stuff (<6%) is in a separate store from the high gravity beers. Visited the low alcohol side first.

Low gravity side:
Tons of six packs to choose from. Terrapin, Avery, Sweetwater, Yazoo, lots of German singles, Lindemans, and so forth. Not much help from the guy behind the counter, but didn't really need any. Warm six packs as well as a long cooler full of beer.

High gravity side:
Good sized section of shelving right in front below the huge windows. Nice Belgian selection (Delerium, Gouden Carolus, Chimay, Piraat and many others) as well as American (Oskar Blues, DFH 120 and World Wide Stout, Stone, Great Divide, etc.)

Staff was very helpful on the high gravity side. An older employee I took to be a manager offered to help. He also had no problem helping me get six packs out of unopened cases so I didn't have to get beer that had been sitting directly in front of the window. Another employee also helped me carry my haul to the car.

Prices are a bit more than some places I've been to, but they seem to be on par with the area and are by no means exorbitant. I definitely enjoyed the experience and will definitely be back on my next trip to Nashville.

This was a nice place to stop on my way through Nashville. It's separated into two sections--a beer store on the right for brews at or under 6%, and a large liquor store with some higher ABV beers. As far as the lower ABV brews, the selection is pretty great, covering a lot of different breweries, regions, and styles. They even have these pre-mixed six pack samplers covering styles like "Citrusy IPAs," or regions. I like the idea of them picking out some brews that they like and selling them in packs to help people get acquainted with particular styles (or spins on or focuses of those styles, like citrusy IPAs) or regions. Service was kind, and somewhat helpful, though they did not go out of their way to help me, though I wasn't looking for too much help either. The higher ABV brews had some decent selection, though they are tucked away in corners of the liquor store on the left. It took me a bit to find them, but they had several breweries and great brews to offer--Oskar Blues, Terrapin, Victory, ST, Chimay, Boulevard, etc. All in all, a good place to visit!
