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:
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.

Usually visit Kuhnhenn when I'm in metro Detroit.
A- Nice big U-shaped bar. Reasonable amount of high-top tables. Wood floors and brick walls. Warm and welcoming.
Q- Kuhnhenn's beers are a bit hit or miss to me, but when it's a hit, it's a grand slam. Creme Brulee stout, DRIPA, Braggot, 4th Dementia, Aldebaran, All Hallows Ale being a few of my favorites. They also have plenty of wines and meads for those who don't like beer.
S- They have table service here which is nice. When it gets really busy it can get hard to find a server but that can be accepted.
S- Always a variety of styles and ABVs to choose from. I've even been lucky enough to go in on Saturday afternoon in the summer and find BB4D on tap!
F- Kinda don't really know how to rate this one. They don't really do food apart from dried meats and cheeses but they are cool with people ordering delivery from local places or bringing stuff in. On special occasions they have some form of catering, and that has always been well done.
V- Reasonable, obviously the higher ABV and hopped stuff is more than sessionable things.
