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!

Nice surprise! Stopped by this place on a recommendation and I'm glad I did. Very well stocked store, almost too well because the isles are very tight to navigate through. The selection is fantastic; the beers are well organized. I completely missed the Belgium section but caught it on my way out, glad I did! They do singles of everything in the store, one of the best Michigan beer selections I have seen. I walked out with a case of wine and a couple cases of mix and match beers. The service is wonderful, the selection is great...highly recommend it!

Part of a 6 day tour through Michigan visiting local breweries. This store looks average and ordinary from the outside. Walked in and was taken away by all the inventory this place packs in. Great selection of Michigan beers and crafts. Did not find a Rogue that I was looking for but the guy behind the counter recommended a harvest ale that was excellent. I was allowed to take and mix any beers out of their 6 packs…neat! The beers were organized by geography and judging from the traffic I would assume were regularly rotated.

Recommend this place very much! Cheers!

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!

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.

Phenomenal selection. Great music playing in store. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Downside is individual beers are not labeled with a price so it's a surprise when you check out. Overall great place to buy your beer and liquor. I wouldn't have found this gem without beer advocate app.... Just sayin
