I seriously had the worst bar/restaurant experience of my life last night. The staff was rude, the bouncer was rude, the whole place was unacceptable from a customer service stand point.

When i joined my party it took 15 minutes before someone stopped by to see if I wanted something to drink. When my friend showed up 20 minutes later, first the bouncer came over to our table and demanded to see her ID (she looks young yes but she's 23 and he was incredibly rude in how he went about carding her) and then nobody EVER came by to ask her if she'd like something, she never even got one drink.

Then when our table got the check one of our group asked the server if they could charge $44 (of our $200+ bill) to his credit card, he was told that they do not do that because that would constitute splitting a bill which they REFUSE to do. He had already added up his total and told them how much to charge, not split anything off, just charge his portion of the bill to his card. Their response was "It's not that we can't do it, it's that we won't do it." ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. What happens when a group only has credit cards? Is on perso. Forced to charge the whole bill on their card because dragonmead refuses to be accomodating.

Best believe I will never return there with my business. I will never even buy a dragonmead product at another bar. I will also tell everyone I know about how horrible my experience was there, and I mean EVERYONE, friends, family, and complete strangers.

I will happily go to the Falling Down Beer company (better beer, better food, and a better staff) with my business from now on when we want micro-brews. To be honest I would rather find a hole in the wall bar and drink bud light on tap before I ever return to or give dragonmead my business again.

Dragonmead is a beer lovers' paradise. Plenty of delicious beer options. I don't sample foods, but the beer options are admirable and tasty. Location is industrial, but with a pub atmosphere including steel tip dart boards and a lot of english oak. The theme is clear and the quality is here.

This was stop #4 on our pub crawl in a group of four people. It was still mid-afternoon and we were not hungry, so we were here to try some of the beers and experience the pub. Customer activity was picking up for the late afternoon and evening crowd, so we got the last table that was left before they opened the closed section.

There were 44 beers on tap, plus some meads and wines that are also made here, so the selection was excellent. We ordered two 5-glass sampler flights. All of them were very good and right on to style with some extra flavor kick to make them much better than average. Overall we graded them at a B+ rating.

There was a food menu on the table that had a limited selection of meat/cheese plates, nachos & cheese, a cheeseburger, a few deli sandwiches and pizza. All of them are reasonably priced, but we didn't order any food for me to comment on the quality.

With a beer selection like found here and the quality of the beers, it's hard not to like this place. We'll definitely make a return visit when we're in the area again.

Atmosphere: live music is just okay. otherwise just an average bar

Quality: dragonmead makes great beers. i have enjoyed both their belgian and english style beers. of which i have had a good amount.

Service: attentive and helpful but nothing perfect

Selection: this is one place i can go and have difficulty ordering because i want so many different things. i could go there on a weekly basis and never get bored

overall: definitely have some of the tastiest beers in michigan and i go every change i get.

Atmosphere - feels like walking back in time to the Renaissance, decorum is all swords, shields and dragons, low lighting level lends to the feeling of being in a castle. Pretty unique atmosphere.

Quality/selection- I have had several of their beers on tap at various bars so I decided to try some of the stuff that I had not had before. I had the crowned Jewels IPA which was not bad but not great a solid B ranked beer, the honey porter B-, Juggernaut B-, and the Russian Imperial stout B. The selection of beers on tap was great with well over 20 beers all made by Dragonmead. However, the quality/variety of the flavors did not blow me away. All of the beers even though they were of different styles had very similar flavor traits it almost seemed like they used the same yeast in all the beers. The beer was above macros in quality but just did not meet my expectations of what a craft brewery should be producing. Stick with Final Absolution if you go here that is their best beer IMHO.

Service- The bartender was friendly, not overly knowledgeable of the beer but friendly and met our needs.

Overall, a slightly mediocre brewery in the flavors they bring to the table but worth checking out if in the area.
