It's amazing that a little out of the way place like Kuhnhenn's finds such a following. If this place was in Canada hardly anyone would know about it. Anyway stopped in on a quiet afternoon with plucier for lunch and few beer. Not much to this place, surprisingly small and I could see it getting packed very quickly on the weekends. The pricing comes close to gouging for what I found to be average beer. We had pints of the Creme Brulee (an amazing smelling beer) and the Oatmeal Stout. Both were a let down - overally sour and thin, especially for something that's on nitro. The pour for both of these pints had to set a record. I counted 8 growlers being filled in the time it took our beer to settle for the top up. Then we sampled the following:
Scotch Ale
Saison
Kuhnie Christmas
Hefeweiss
The scotch ale and saison held some promise, but again nothing really grabbed me. I would say that opaque beers are definitely not their forte. The food selection was limited and the pizza we had was passable. Service was friendly. We left with bottles of the Eisbock, and at $10 a pop for a half bottle (187ml) this has to be one of the most overpriced beer I've had.

Yes going in my expectations were high, but I have to say this place was a let down on many levels and considering the amount they charge it is highly over rated in my opinion. Save your dollars for the other great local beer in Michigan.

As Chuck D was prone to saying - don't believe the hype.

Great looking place, bartender was helpful, fast and friendly. Love the beer here, no doubt. Only downside, no food (besides some popcorn, chips, cheese and sausage).

Flagship beers are all memorable and the seasonals/experimentals are just as good. These guys are hard to beat.

P.S. bring back the pumpkin sour you had at the detroit beer fest in 2013.

The other people there make this place cool. The beer is good, the beer selection is good. They have few food choices and don't always have a food truck around. The service is generally awful (moreso on the management side than the servers/bartenders). I would say that if this place didn't make a few great beers and meads they would have gone under several years ago. Their price points are also very high on some of their bottles.
