    Hey all, I will be heading to Nashville here in a week to visit some family and was wondering where to go out for a beer and what liquor stores have a good selection. Also, what breweries are prevalent in the area?

    Nashville has a few of good breweries: Blackstone, Jackalope, and Yazoo. As far as a liquor store goes, TN segregates high gravity and low gravity beer sales. High grav (defined as 6.3% or up) can only be found in liquor stores- I would suggest Frugal MacDoogal's, Green Hills, J. Barleycorn's, or Midtown Wine and Spirits. Decent low-gravity stuff can be found in most grocery stores.

    Yazoo is a great local brewery. Not sure if they still make it, but Sue is an amazing smoked porter.

    They still make SUE, yes. I saw where they are going to put it in 750ml bottles now. Not sure if they'll still make the 12oz. version or not

    Thats interesting, where did you hear that?

    If it cuts the price in half and I can get Sue for $3.50-4 a 750 then I'd be ok with that, but I'm assuming that won't the case...

    Hi Ryan,

    Yes, we have swapped the Sue over to all big bottles. Grab a few bottles instead of the 4 pack!! We appreciate your support of Yazoo Brews!

    I support their decision to move toward bombers. Sue was ridiculously cheap considering what it was as a 4pk, and now is still very affordable as a bomber. With that said, I've still seen tonnnnnns of four packs on shelves around town. I'm sure you'll be able to snag them for a while yet.

    They're bottling Sue in 750ml bottles, not bombers (which are 22 ounces). Same form factor as Fortuitous

    Right... I've always heard both 750ml and 22oz bottles refered to as bombers.

    The problem is...Sue is 9%. Sometimes I like to drink 1 beer at a time. I could buy a 4 pack and it would last me 4 days. Now 1 750ml will last me 1 day and I'll probably get drunk if I don't have anyone to share it with. Don't always wanna get drunk either.

    Oh, and you can get growler refills (64 oz.) at Froogal McDogals liquer store on the beer side. and yes, they have empty growlers for sale, too. (In case you didn't bring a growler :-) )

    If you can, make the drive to Williamson county and cool springs brewery. Best brewpub in middle tn, IMO.

    Reds in belle meade might be worth a visit too. They had an impressive imports section as compared to many of the othe shops, if memory serves me right.
