I ran across Schuler's Wine Cellar whilst in search of coffee after a fine day spent at Founders. Their primary focus seems to be wine, however, they seem to carry a fairly extensive selection of micro brews.

Quality: The beer seemed to be fresh and was kept away from natural light. No complaints with anything I purchased.

Service: The initial help we received was just that, help. The man who approached us was helpful, and he seemed generally interested in recommending beers that we would appreciate. At the counter, the service was less than exceptional, in fact, it was atrocious. The fellow who deigned to speak to us did almost everything possible to insinuate that our taste in beer was poor and to make us feel unwelcome in the store. He personified everything I dislike about insular cultures in general and beer snobs in particular...and we weren't even buying macro...merely a few locals that he didn't think were particularly good.

The score that I've given in service reflects an average of exceptional (the initial help) and terrible (the man at the counter) but said counter service was poor enough that I doubt I will ever shop at this store again.

Selection: The selection at the store seemed to be quite good for the area...a good number of harder to find locals, as well as fairly unusual offerings such as Deus and a variety of other Belgian style beers.

Value: Slightly below average. Most beers seemed to be a quarter or two more expensive than usual and the wines seemed to be marked up a couple of dollars over what I'm used to. Reflective of the neighbourhood though.

Overall: I like the selection of the store, but I doubt I will go back due to the service isssues outlined above.

Awesome bottle shop! Great selection that is very diverse. Staff were super welcoming and helpful, they seemed to know their stuff. Huge liquor wall and a big wine selection. Didn't check out the humidor since I don't smoke. Prices seemed standard/reasonable. Of the many shops around Grand Rapids D. Schuler's is one of the better ones without a doubt.

D. Schulers has a very good selection of craft beers from all over the place. The beer they cary there is fantastic. They are kind of highly priced compared to some of the other options in the area with the same products. The service there isn't the friendliest place I've ever been and they don't really seem to be too helpful. The only reason that I'd go back here is if I was looking for something that the other places locally didn't have because there are much better options nearby.

I think this place is amazing! The staff was on point with my questions, knew what they were talking about. Selection, out of this world. With beer ratings located on shelf space for most beers, you get the idea that someone working there loves beer as well. I asked about the upcoming KBS release and was surprised to be asked to be put on a limited, one bottle per costumer list. And was promised that beer for up to a week after the March 25th release! Awesome place, great people working, setup was ideal. Price was a little high on the 'hype' beers, usually is around here though. Plus, you can choose a single from any six or twelve pack, on top of a huge single/bomber selection already setup for choosing from.
