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, its 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 theres 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 youre anywhere remotely near the area. Cheers to the Brothers Kuhnhenn for creating a Great beer establishment!

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.
