While wine takes up the majority of the store, a good 30% or so of floor space, as well as a full wall of cooler is dedicated to beer.
Very good depth of Michigan and mid-west beers (Bell's, Great Lakes, New Holland, etc.), a nice selection of Belgians, including quite a few 750s, a good selection of other micros (a ton of Rogue in both 12 oz and 22 oz - never seen more at a single store before) and interesting stuff from the rest of Europe.
Everything seemed in excellent shape, and no out of code products were noted. Back stock seemed to be all in the cooler. The staff I talked with were very enthusiatic about beer, and seemed on top of it. Interestingly, all six of the customers in the store while I was were shopping for beer, not wine. Kudos to the Great Lakes Michigan Sales Rep. who pointed me to this fine store.

This is my spot. Every weekend I come here for a few beers. Great selection of craft brew and quality import. It's in a strip mall hidden away on the north side of 44th st by Ramble Wood apartments between Byron Center and Ivanrest.
Yeah the staff can be confined to the counter too much but I have had good visits with the owner, who is very helpful (once assisted me in a custom six pack). The craft beer selection has improved every year and includes a greater selection of local beer with an expected selection of some higher named craft breweries (Stone, DFH, Rouge, Victory). Last year they switched a wall of cooler doors to a custom six pack area (great choice), and a well defined good selection of singles is stored there.
As compared to the other stores I have visited in the Grand Rapids area this one has the lowest priced singles around.
I wish I worked here on the weekends!

This is the first store I saw Jolly Pumpkin in around here. However, this store was difficult to find. D. Schulers is tucked away in a tiny strip mall with very little to mark it's presence. This is primarily a wine store, as it's name would lend one to think, however the beer selection is very good. Lots of US micros stacked on shelves well organized along with imports on other shelves. There is lots of Belgians and many other from around the world. The local brewerys are well represented here too. Nice prices and service make this a nice store to have in the area. A bit out of the way for me but, when I am on that side of town I try to visit them.

Obviously major wine store but very good selection of beer. Little bit hard to find as its kind of hidden in small strip mall but relatively easy acces off of major highway (MI-131). Excellent array of Western Michigan beers (with all K-zoo, GR breweries represented as well as some other midwestern ones. Decent selections of Belgians comparable to any decent beer store. Agree that they have a pretty good display of Rogue beers. Select bottles from some interesting places throughout Europe also.
Coolers were large and wellstocked, staff was very friendly. I told him about Three Philosophers from Omegang and he didn't even know about it. Nice feature is that they had 6-packs of samples by brewery and also by theme (stouts, X-mas theme, etc.)

This place is very hard to find and without the help of beer advocate I would never had even known about it. This is mostly a wine store with beer being almost hidden in the back quarter of the store. The selection there was quite surprising to me. They had a good selection of local micros but not as good as some other places. Their Belgian selection was also good. I was mainly surprised by the fact that they had some Rogue I hadn't seen, Geary's HSA (never seen before), and some Abita I hadn't seen. The workers there didn't help me but were helpful to others who had asked for it. A good place to check out if in that area.

Good selection of beer and wine. Staff is eager to help. Nice dark wood interior reminds you of an old wine cellar. Everything well kept out of direct sunlight. Good selection of micros and imports. Locals include Dark Horse, Arbor, Founders, Bells, New Holland, some other abstracts. Nice find here, a bottle of Dog Fish Head World Wide Stout from 2004(in 2007). Prices are on par with everything else in the area. I made my rounds to all the stores in GR this past Christmas since the selection in North Carolina is not as refined as in Michigan, though they are finally starting to catch up.

D. Schuler's had a pretty good selection. Warm singles were arranged on shelves and the coolers were loaded up with full sixers and quads. I couldn't find everything I wanted in singles which was a slight downer, but overall they had much to offer. My bro pointed out some Edition 2004 and Blanche de Chambly which I hadn't seen around yet. Looked like they had some imports going on. Lots of wine, go figure. Not bad. Not the promise land. The service was fine. The store had the best ambiance of any establishment on the grand tour which is worth a quality point. Once again I wish they had everything in singles. That is what makes a place go from good to great in my humble opinion.

This isn't my regular place to pick up beer, but I feel they do a decent job.
They have a pretty good selection of locals, crafts, and imports. Their prices seem to fall within the bounds of their competitors' pricing. They offer singles and mix packs.
One area I kind of wavered on was service. In my experience it seems to be all or nothing. One of the last times I went I brought my purchase (a bomber of a Rogue brew from the shelf) to the counter, the cashier mentioned that he had it in the cooler too. As he brought me back to find it, he also gave me suggestions of others to try if I enjoyed that one.
However, I've also gone in and spent a good 10 minutes or more in the beer section without a single person asking if I needed any help.
I'd recommend this shop if you're in the area. Just don't be too shy to ask for help if you need it.

been going to schullers for years, mainly because they have a good selection. they use to be pretty pricey, then when they moved to their new location it seemed like they adjusted cost to a more reasonable spot. Now within the last few months it seems like everytime they get something new they jack the price on it compared to other places. also they have had list for certain beers and held them in the back. they do however have a very nice selection of beer. usually when something new comes out they get it right away which I like. they also have alot of wine/liqour and cigars if your into that type of stuff.
edit! I have stopped shopping at schullers for probably the last 9 months. the last time I was in there I asked an older lady working there if they still had any founders backwoods bastard left(this was about a month after it had been released, and they where charging about 14 bucks a 4 pk for it.) she goes in the back and brings out 1 bottle, MARKED AT 6$!!! she asked me if I wanted it I said no way, thats about twice what it should cost. so I then bought a 4pk of founders curmudgeons, and it was priced at around 13$, still higher then anywhere else. after that I vowed never to return there again, and so far I have kept good on my promise!

I don't usually end up on this side of town much, but I stopped in with some friends on our way out to a nature hike.
Service was fairly minimal. I wandered around for a good 15 minutes and wasn't offered any help. To be fair, the guy at the counter had a fairly steady line, and I'm not sure if anyone else was around. Store was pretty organized, and beer was labeled by State.
Selection was decent, I found a few offerings I hadn't seen in my usual haunts. Picked up a 6-pack of Victory Storm King priced at 14 something. At the counter it rang up at 11 dollars and some cents. Nice. Either it was on sale or somebody mis-marked the pack. No complaints on getting a better price though.
What surprised me was the constant line of people buying crap beer, when they had so many better offerings. (It was an early afternoon too.) I won't go out of my way to stop here, but if i'm in the neighborhood a stop will most likely prove worthwhile. Nice place.
