I've gotta give it to this place, they do have a very good high ABV beer section for Nashville area standards. It's well arranged, and the prices are decent. Good Belgian selection, and just an overall success.

On the low side, they allow mix and match six packs, which is HUGE to me. I love to sample before I buy, so having the ability to buy just 1 at first is essential. The selection is pretty decent but not the best in the area (hello Midtown). For the city of Murfreesboro though, this is the best you'll get.

As for the service?? It was wonderful on the high side, and "meh" on the low.

Vibe was good. Store is clean and well organized, easy to get around with sections clearly marked. Good selection of beers, both local and national brands represented and grouped as you would hope. Easy to find local brews. Staff was excellent, each member offered assistance to customers, then knew their products and were able to offer recommendations on good local brands to try. They knew when other products would be in stock and offered advice on how to contact them to find out when they would be available.

Service was kind of slow as it took days for them to get back to me for a stock check.

I couldn't have been more impressed with the selection here. So many of the local brewers and then I found so many of the Champions of the Craft Brew world. The clerks knew the products and had suggestions. I'm not from TN but have heard the prices tend to be higher than surrounding states and it seemed to be true but what's cost when you find so much you can't get back home.

Hands down best bottle shop in Murfreesboro, and possibly even Nashville as well. Knowledgeable staff, best selection you can get in Tennessee (this state SUCKS for beer, I moved from Michigan). They get a lot of special releases as well, like them on facebook to see when they get them, things like Dank Tank and Stone releases sell out quickly once they post them, usually on fridays when they get their shipments in.

Lots of Belgians, huge assortment of Trappist beer, lots of IPA's and pretty much everything. Lower ABV store is located literally right next store, for everything under 6.2%. Don't waste your time in Murfreesboro going anywhere else, everything else is stale and expired, go here.

I love this place. It is 25 miles from my home (Lebanon), but I make the trek two or three times each month for the excellent selection, reasonable prices, and good service. Most beers are available from the cooler as well as off the shelf, and the shelves are well-stocked.

The fellow behind the counter most often when I visit is friendly, helpful and willing to talk about beer without the snobbish attitude often found in good beer and tobacco stores. Parking is plentiful and wheelchair accessible, and the place is located less than a mile from the interstate.

Total Beverage is a good choice when you want to get and get out quickly, and is about as good as it gets for package purchases here in middle Tennessee.

Number one spot to go to when it comes to finding good beer here in Murfreesboro. Some of you may know, Tennessee is not the most pleasant state when it comes to beer and alcohol laws. Thus, all beers over 6.2% must be sold in liquor stores! Well, this place is divided into a smokes and brews shop for all the low ABV beers and a wines and spirits section. The wine and spirits section has an amazing selection of high gravity beers from around the world. They have a large section dedicated just to belgian beers, as well as a nice area that pulls in beer from all over the country. Great place and a great location right by the interstate. Check it out if you are ever in or near Murfreesboro.
