Rashi is very friendly and helpful as well as very knowledgeable of his beers and what is current and going on in the craft beer world as well as very knowledgeable of his wines. Will always welcome when you walk in no matter what the Grand Rapids winter may throw at you. If he doesnt have something he will let you know if he can get it or if it is even distributed in Michigan. I became one of his regulars and will miss that now that I had to move away to Seattle. The beer selection is large, as he is expanding to a larger space in Jan. 2014. Go here if you are in the Grand Rapids area, you wont be let down.

Overwhelming at first, the owner (Rishti) helped me navigate the selection and helped me find the perfect mix pack. Also, I'm lost with wine and he helped me pick out a bottle that blew my family away! Huge selection of all kinds of alcohol - Beer selection was very cool. I can highly recomend Rishti and International Beverage. Plus, Getting great leads on FB that I haven't been able to find around anywhere else - Thanks Rishti - look forward to returning!

Overall the selection was quite nice and the staff behind the counter seemed knowledgeable about their products. My major complaint with this store is the outrageous mark-up on nearly most of their products. I completely understand why retail centers mark-up, but to pay $15 for a six pack of Short's in G.R. is a little out of control. To add to this complaint it seemed that the only craft beer that was priced with a label were 22oz and up selections. All of the 12oz selections were not priced, to find it you have to ask or be shocked when they scan it at the counter.

Living in G.R. I don't thing I will return to this establishment being that there are many other great bottle shops in the city that run their businesses with a bit more integrity. A 50% mark-up seems unethical to me personally.
