It's a very clean store, and a spacious one at that. As any place in Tennessee though, beer is a small section in the liquor store. I hate the "high vs low" ABV law here in TN. I'd say their selection is par for the course. They had a decent selection of Belgians there, and they were arranged quite well.

The service was pretty good, as we had two people ask us if we needed assistance in only 3 minutes in the store.

However, the prices?? OUCH. Probably the worst I've seen. I get that it's Brentwood, but paying 30 percent or more extra for that just makes no sense to me. So I didn't buy anything there. I just couldn't justify the cost.

Located on the east side of I-65, across from Cool Springs mall. Easy to get to, taking Baker Bridge away from the mall area.

Located in a small upscale strip shopping center. While primarily a wine shop, the store features a medium size liquor department and 5 cooler doors devoted to beer. Several sixers, but mostly bombers. No single sales.

One shelf rack in the back center of the store holds a few nice surprises, so don't forget to wander back there.

Was approached several times as I shopped and the folks working seem genuinely interested in beer. Boulevard was well represented, as was Bridgeport and the usual Stone offerings.

Nothing here you can't find in other Nashville area stores, but if you are in the area and have time to kill while the family is at the mall then head over the bridge and check them out.

On my last visit, the selection had definitely declined but was still reasonable. Prices seemed to have increased as well, especially compared with other stores. Still worth a stop if in the area but definitely not a destination.
