Stopped here on my way through Grand Rapids on a recommendation. This is an impressive store, as you walk in there is a beautiful wall of Belgium and import cork finished bottles on your right. The back half of the store is all beer. For the most part this is a very organized and well laid out store. Their selection of Michigan beers is amazing not to mention the prices are very fair as compared to other retailers that I visited. Every beer is available in singles; you can take a single beer right out of any six packs to build your own. The service was excellent; I was greeted as I walked in and talked about IPAs with the clerk who was very helpful in picking out some wonderful Michigan brews. Shook my hand on the way out and had me join their email list.

One of the most notable stops during my trip...wish they had one of these in Oak Park!

I now exclusively go to Int'l Beverage. When I buy booze anywhere else, I feel like I'm cheating. Their selection is unmatched in Grand Rapids and their prices are far fairer than places that might come close. They are continuously getting new beers in, and notify you which ones through their weekly email. I'd guesstimate they get about 3 or so new types of beers each week. Their email also has a Beer Style of the Week feature, which is purely educational and interesting, offering a history of various types of beers and recommendations of brands of that style.
Since the first day I walked in there I've felt welcome and the employees have even become my friends. They have yet to let me down in recommending me a new beer. I suggest this place to everyone I know and to anyone who appreciates a good brew or is looking to start buying better beer

What a pleasant surprise! Stopped by looking for beer making supplies and walked out with a trunk full of beer. Deceiving from the outside, but inside is an outstanding selection of what seemed to be well attended to beer. The service was excellent, very knowledgeable. Mix your own six ...two thumbs up! Bought a couple of sixes of half off Belgium beers, was expecting half the quality but will be going back for more.

Overall I would recommend this to all, they did not have Kuhnhenn beers in stock, I asked and the clerk called the brewery as I was finishing my request!

Was in Grand Rapids over the past weekend and had read good reviews of this place. Seeing it was quite close to my hotel, it was no problem stopping in.

What an amazing store for beer. A great collection of all kinds of Michigan brewers. Especially loved the Dark Horse and Short's collections. Like others have said, being able to break up the six packs into singles is great and gives you the chance to try before you commit to the whole six pack.

Store is laid out very well, with all brews from each brewer right beside each other. Very clean and well laid out.

To me, what really makes the store is Rishi, the owner. Boy he knows his stuff and is super friendly. He has a vast knowledge of the products and is more than willing to go out of his way to help you find what you want or even something that you need to have that you didn't know about.

Definitely worth checking out and I'll return when I'm back in the area.
