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 looks to be a brand new store. The higher alcohol beers are on the liquor side and the selection is very, very small. The liquor store is well lit and very bright.

The beer side had a neat diagnol layout and the cashier was very nice and helpful. There were many beers and the prices seemed reasonable. They had a few odd beers that I had not seen elsewhere. They also have premixed six packs you can grab as samplers which is a neat idea for someone who wants to try beers from different breweries.

This place is absolutely huge but the beer section is just a small corner. It is a little difficult to judge the selection because TN distribution is very thin compared to states I am used to visiting. That said, the selection was pretty good, consisting of the expected southern locals like Sweetwater & Terrapin, locals like Yazoo and the likes of Stone, SN, Laughing Dog, Schlafly, etc.

Prices were good. Service was friendly although not as knowledgeable as I have come to expect at bottle shops.

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.

This place seemed to have some pretty high numbers on beerfly. I’ve been traveling to Nashville several times recently and decided to get the chance to check out some of the local places. Whilst at Bosco’s, this also was their very first answer when I asked for the best liquor store in the area. There was 3+ hours til the flight, and they claimed it was close by. Unfortunately, this all got my hopes way up.

According to all the info, MWS recently expanded and upgraded to their superstore capacity, which had me hoping for gargantuan selection. Large it was, but mainly for wine, liquor, and macros. Everything appeared new and shiny, a wine tasting was going on while I wandered around looking for beers.

They are located right on Church Street, which appears to be right near Vanderbilt and a bunch of hotels. The right side, which I only really browsed through, had a decent selection of local and regional goodies. It was the side for lower ABV beers. I spent most of my time on the high test left side of the building. Had some interesting internationals, but the rest of the selection (which was only really two bookcases near the door and crammed behind a register) was average. I picked up a couple of Stone beers and an couple of 750 sized DFH that I don’t see anymore and stuffed my carry on full. Selection isn’t wowable, but decent. Nothing appeared to have any dust on it and all appeared to be of average to high quality.

The service that I received was highly friendly and extremely knowledgeable about what they had there. I talked with the nice fella a good bit about beers. I explained to him why the distributor wasn’t able to get 750 sized Midas Touch anymore and why the remaining big bottles of DFH he had wouldn’t be around much longer.

Worthy for being in Nashville. Both Broadway Brewing and Boscos are within a mile or two radius. Beers were all a dollar or two more than I remember getting elsewhere, but still not as bad as I've seen elsewhere; i.e. NYC.

Easy to get to from downtown. Tennessee beer store with low ABV beers in door to the right and high ABV beers, wine and liquor in door to the left. I have always had great customer service when I have called in but it is hit or miss when actually in the store.

Low ABV side has most everything you can get in TN. Boulder Beer, Sweetwater, Terrapin, Yazoo etc etc. Not much in the way of singles but they do have some mixed six-apcks they created based on style. Good way to sample a few different things.

On the high ABV side the beer selection is against the front window by the cash regsiters. Large selection of Dogfish Head, Stone, Great Divide and a good number of imports. Nothing spectacular but a decent selection by Nashville stanards.

A good place to drop in on. I prefer Froogal Macdoogal despite it being in the hood and a little more chaotic, but Midtown is definitely one of the two best stores in town.

I stopped by all of the liquor stores in Nashville ... all four of them ... and Midtown had the best beer selection, by far. There are two entrances to the building - one for beer and one for liquor and wine and large alcohol beers. You have to leave the store to go from one side to the other. I didn't even go over to the regular beer side of the store. In the large beers area, they had only two bookcase size shelving units of beer. But the beer they had here was a wonderful selection. I picked up a La Trappe Quad, several JW Lees Harvest 1987, DFH World Wide 2003, Elizabethan Ale, Flying Dog Wild Dog, etc. Very impressed with the selection. The cashier guys actually knew quite a bit about the beers that I purchased. Very impressed. Such a small selection, but a very good selection.

Recently remodeled and relocated, this store features the typical "split entrance" design required by TN's segregation of high and low abv beverages. On the right is a nice selection of various regional brewers like Rogue, Abita and the local Bohannon/Market Street beers. A lot of display was cases stacked on the floor - not too well thought out in terms of store design, but perhaps they don't have all the shelving in yet. The left side of the store is wine and liquor, but they do have a small selection of high abv Belgians and Barleywines. I'm concerned, however, because these are shelved right in front of the windows.

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.

Probably the best place in Nashville. They have separate sides for <6% and <6%. The low alcohol side is actually one of the more solid selections I've seen. They have a little bit of everything, most impressively being some DFH 60 with a BOD of about a week ago.

The liquor side is where the good stuff is. Picked up some Oak Aged Yeti, some Hercules IPA (both from Great Divide), a sixer of Big Hoppy Monster from Terrapin (love that stuff) and a couple of other singles.

Best selection for high ABV beers in the area. Nothing spectacular but still very solid.
