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.

The DRIPA and Crème Brulee Java Stout are fantastic. Haven't had too many others that I would go out of my way to get.

Food selection is sub par but they do have an extensive beer, wine, and mead list to choose from.

Only downfall I've had here is that I have felt ignored by the staff numerous times. Although the Brewers are pretty cool guys and will go out of their way to show you the passion they have for the brews they make!

Stopped in here one evening during the week for a couple beers. This place is very loud and not all the tables were full of people. Sat at the bar and the bar tenders were just ok.

Great spot, always going to have some great stuff on. Even if Kuhnhenn's most popular brews aren't available, others are generally great as well. Service can be a bit spotty on festival or release days, but that's to be expected. Bring your own food or buy from a food truck if they have one. I've had some great food truck fare to go with the great Kuhnhenn beers. A must-stop if you're in the area.

Kuhnhenn is a diamond in the rough of Warren, Mi. They do not serve much food, save for frozen pretzels but their beer selection is top notch. I am a big fan of the fluffier and all their blueberry beers and of course the high abv stuff. Just be careful, they are masters of hiding the alcohol from their beer and it can be dangerous.
