vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 3.5

Finally made the pilgrimage to the ex-hardware store, and I was met with a classic tap room, friendly folks, and great beer.

Inside, Kuhnhenn reminds me in some ways of old Founders, a crowd of regulars that are clearly local, casual decor, the old style tap room experience, in essence, but with fantastic beer. Kuhnhenn, for a small place, does an excellent job in terms of quality and service...they have a full line of appropriate glassware available for the brews, and the staff is friendly and prompt.

In terms of selection, I would rate it good but not fantastic. They had a modest selection of brews on tap when I visited, certainly as many as I would expect for the size of the establishment, but I would have liked a bit more variety.

Overall, a great throwback style place that I would live at if I were located in the Detroit area, definitely worth a visit if you're in the city for any reason.

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.

First time at this brewery. Not bad setup, but hard to find since it's located in weird intersection. Beer selection slanted more towards IPA's and lighter beers, but looked to be about 20-25 beers on tap. Had the DRIPA and Porter, both good, liked the DRIPA better. If in the area worth stopping by. On 12/19 and 12/20/2014 is their Winter Solstice when they have their special beers available.

Not so good. Went in alone. Was ignored for nearly 5mins while groups of 2, 3 or more came and were seated ahead of me. Asked about what was available and was told to wait a minute while YUP! You guessed it, served more groups!

I may be only one person but my money is just as good as anyone else's. Just because you only get one person's money doesn't make it right to give groups good service while single people get service when convenient.

Will try them again one day. Will go in alone again and re-review.

Weird location but very close to my house = awesome. Great atmosphere inside, free popcorn, BYO food, friendly staff and great beer. Tented events here are awesome and fun with great music usually. Not a TON of parking but there are options down and across the street. Anyone in the area or just passing through needs to check it out.
