When I think of Kuhnhenn Brewing, I think of a comfortable, local place that seems to have it all put together. Off the street, Kuhnhenn looks very unassuming and is very easy to miss. The storefront is nothing remarkable, and probably looks little different from its former days as a hardware store. Located right on Mound Road, it’s fairly easy to get to, and the parking lot in back offers convenience to both the brewpub and homebrewing store sides of the business, in case you need to load your car conveniently. In addition to the store and pub, Kuhnhenn also offers brew on premises, for both beer and wine I believe.

The inside of the brewpub is very comfortable, with a large bar and plenty of barstools occupying the center, with the BOP setups located behind the bar and high top wooden tables scattered amongst the seating area. A large projection TV is located behind the bar above the extensive tap collection. A chalkboard on one wall lists both the current tap selection as well as the offerings available in bottles, which often includes some treasures – Fourth Dementia and Nine on my last visit – yumm! The printed menus floating about offer detailed descriptions of the beers and wines, and list the food offerings. Food here is somewhat limited, but ample to keep pace with the beer, offerings include personal pizzas, cheese, chips, sandwiches etc. Kuhnhenn clearly focuses on the beer and makes no pretenses about it, but there’s enough to munch on if you need it.

There are usually many and varied beers on tap, many displaying great creativity in both craftsmanship and naming, i.e. Raspberry Panty Dropper or the simply named but fantastic Bourbon Barrel Barleywine. The Staff are very friendly and have gone to extra lengths The brothers are often wandering around or behind the bar and are usually happy to chat about beer a bit. Overall, one of my favorite places to sit and enjoy some fantastic beer. Worth stopping if you’re anywhere remotely near the area. Cheers to the Brothers Kuhnhenn for creating a Great beer establishment!

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.
