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.

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.

Come for the beer and great service.
Their motto is 'do your work here'. Offers free wifi.
Great craft beer selection with awesome variety, 16 on tap + wines + meads.
The Saison is one of the best I have had. The Loonie Kuhnie is their flagship beer and is a pale ale which is not too hoppy.
Awesome ambiance and smell of brewing upon entering door.
A must when visiting Detroit area for any beer enthusiast.
Food is snack food only. It's a brewery not a restaurant.
