This is a huge "place tick" for me. Living in Michigan, I'm constantly being asked if I have access to Kuhnhenn, "Can you send me some Kuhnhenn", etc etc. Only problem is I'm about 515 miles from Kuhnhenn, so no I don't...I was honored to finally be able to visit.
I clearly came at the right time. Christmas Eve, 2012. They were fresh off the Solstice party, and had a full tap board. They had everything a young man or woman could desire. BBBW, BA4D, Simcoe Sillier, Solar Eclipse, the list goes on.
Before visiting, I did not know that they had a full expanse of not only great beer, but also wine and mead. All sorts of really tasty sounding meads, and some berry wines, a little bit of everything.
The bar is in an older warehouse style building, with another small warehouse across the parking lot which apparently is a homebrew supply store owned by the Kuhnhenn family as well. The bar is pretty well spread out, with quite a few tables situated around a horse shoe shaped bar. About 15 to 20 taps in the center. One bartender on at this point, but there were other employees floating around, bottling and so on.
They don't serve "food" so to speak, but they do serve some soft pretzels and maybe some other really snacky things.
This was an awesome visit. I will try and make it back as soon as I can. Until then, I will have to rely on my local friends for the Kuhnhenn hook. Great stuff going on!

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.
