I've had many an excursion to Frugal's.

This is the best selection of spirits in Nashville and the best prices. Wine is pretty good. Beer is pretty good. Growlers are nice, but selection and number could be better (or maybe I'm just spoiled).

Staff is generally helpful, though some of the checkout people aren't the best. Only bad experience was being told my credit card "wasn't accepted" by some little old lady running the register when it didn't swipe initially. Used a different card and left. Forgot to pick up something, came back in, went to the other register, used the "unaccepted card" with no problems and I still use it to this day. But I've only seen her working once and she was polite enough about it, so I can't be too miffed. Other staff was more helpful, especially in selection and recommendations.

This is the place to go in Nashville before a party or some similar evening of debauchery.

Pretty decent local selection represented here. A Georgia favorite Terrapin was here Founder's, Duck Rabbit Brewing, Stone, Good People so nice selection. Biggest problem hands down are the breweries no bottle or can dating on 90% of the stock I could have spent several Hundred here but ended up buying very little. Great growler station too, just nice set up. HOWEVER, they use Clear glass growlers which is disappointing but they do put them in black plastic bags when you leave. Overall nice place I wish I would have grabbed someone to ask about how long some of the beers have sat on site, although really shame on the local breweries for not bottle or can dating you are only hurting yourselves.

Nice size store. Equivalent to almost a total wine. Beer is 1/4 of the store or thereabouts. Had about 16 taps and they did growler fills. Right down the street from Yazoo. They had a couple of special release beers but nothing super exciting. Decent store.

It was a Saturday pm and the shelves where out or low. Went to find Yahzoo Sue and they said they where out. They had a big store and a big section on beer, but it was not stocked. It would have been nice to know when the next shipment of Sue was coming in , but they acted like they did not care.
