My wife and I stopped here on a recent trip to Michigan. The place is fairly well lit with a nice long bar. Medieval style decor lines the walls along with breweries numerous awards. There is an incredible selection on draft, over 30 beers, including a cask variety. All selections we tried extremely well done. Our bartenders were friendly, talkative, and good at keeping up with the surprising number of people that were here after 10pm on a Wednesday. We did have a chance to chat a bit with one of the brewers for a while also.

Nothing I write in this review could ever be enough. This is perhaps one of the best places to get a beer in Michigan - and perhaps even for better than 250 miles (or more). You would not be disappointed to go out of your way to stop here on whatever would take you in Dragonmead's direction - and if you live in the Detroit area and haven't been here, you're missing out. We will definitely be back on return trips (and plan more time also).

Been going to this place for a long time. Owners are great, staff on the other hand is okay. I've witnessed a few flips in staff, some for good others for bad.

On the upside, beer at this place is great! They do run out of a lot of the favorites and Fridays are nuts to butts.

Atmosphere is cool and laid back, on a weeknight when servers are free they're very willing to assist in helping Budweiser drinkers find the correct beer.

Food is bar junk, used to allow outside food in. Now its greasy sausages, waffle fries and cheese plates.

Never Had the mead here but my Wife and her friends love it. If you're in the area stop in and try a few brews

Located right off a main freeway makes it an easy destination north of Detroit. They usually have about 45 beers on draft. Solid representations of styles. Crown Jewels is a great British IPA, Final Absolution Trippel is a must-have.

Every time I've been the service is fast and friendly, the décor is awesome (except for the exterior, it's very easy to miss Dragonmead if you're not familiar with it. It blends into the offices/warehouses that surround it). Menu is meat, meat, and fries right up my alley. Beer, wine and mead selection is world class.
