This is a composite listing for Rimi Supermarkets in the Latvia. The beer & cider range is fairly uniform throughout the many stores across the Latvia. The address given is that of the head office. Refer to the Rimi website to find a location near you.
All Rimis are fairly good. We went to several, and there were ticks in all of them. Second only to Stockmann unless it’s fancy imports you’re after. Strong on Latvian, but a few foreign ones too. Beware the draconic booze laws - no booze after 10pm. Because, of course, people who want to get pissed and cause trouble will never think of stocking up earlier in the day, of going to pubs, or even of causing trouble before 10pm. We always stick our head round the door, as the macros have now caught on that there’s a demand for new and supposedly interesting new brews.
Large supermarket just outside the city center. A large wall of beer although is mostly just lots and lots of the same stuff. There is both a warm sectiin as well as a cooler with most of the beer available chilled. Pretty good one stop shop though.
It’s a supermarket, the beer is incidental. However, unlike in many European countries the Latvian small guys seem to get equal billing with the national brewers, so Tervates, Piebalgas, Bauskas, Valmiermuižas and others all get a billing. Know what you are seeking to buy though.
