Catering FAQs

How do I begin planning our event?  I have no idea where to start. 

A.  Let one of our experts guide you through the beverage planning process.  Our years of experience give us the "insider's view" - making your event planning enjoyable and almost stress free. 

Q. How much will the beverage service cost?  

A. After consulting with you, we'll do our best to estimate what you'll need and provide you with a written estimate.  You'll only be billed for what is actually served, so your final bill may be slightly higher or lower than the estimate.  

Q. Are we charged for the product ordered or for the product consumed?


A. You will be charged only for product that is opened. We'll have extra on-hand just in case, but you won't be billed for un-opened bottles or un-tapped kegs.

Q.  I have a fixed budget.  Can you work with that?

A.  Yes, we can creatively approach your beverage selection and service planning to meet your budget goals.  In other words, we think you should have the final say in how much is spent.

Q. How do I know my guests will be happy?  

A.  Leave the worrying to us.  We always have extra product on-hand and we'll make sure that your guests are well taken care of and their glasses are full.  

Q. How do I confirm my date with D. Schuler’s.

A. Just let us know.  A deposit is required no later than one month prior to your event date.

Q. How much is the deposit?

A. We require a deposit of 50% of the estimated charges.

Q. When is the remaining balance due?

A.  At the end of your event. We’ll provide a final bill and collect your final payment at that time.

Q What forms of payment do you accept?

A. We accept cash, check, or any type of credit card. When using a credit card there is a 3% service charge applied.
