I have been to Kuhnhenn's a few times in the past. I've finally decided to review it.

Went w/ my dad, my fiance's dad, and my dad's friend on Saturday afternoon.

Atmosphere: We got there at about 2:30 on Saturday. There was a large group from a pub crawl, which made it quite crowded for a bit. Luckily that were almost on their way out. There are about 10 tables and about 10 stools at the L-shaped bar. Behind the bar in an attached room is the Brew-your-own equipment and some other brewing equipment. There are 3 fermenters in the pub area.

Quality: IMO, Kuhnhenn is the best brewery in Michigan not named Bell's. All of their offerings are always solid, with quite a few being exceptional. During this visit, the Saison, Simcoe Silly, Oatmeal Stout, and A Few Shilling Too Many were very good.

Service: This wasn't the greatest when we got there, but that can be expected due to it being at about max capacity. After the large crowd left, the service became much better. They are knowledgable and friendly. Usually Eric Kuhnhenn is walking around talking to many of the patrons, which is nice to see.

Selection: During this trip, I had the ones mentioned above. They also had their IPA, a czech pilsner, mango wheat, metrys lager, and a few others. They also had about 8 Meads and over 10 different types of wine. My dad had the Green Apple Reisling and Strawberry White Merlot, which were both tasty and smooth. I wish they had a few other rare offerings, which it looks like I missed by a few weeks.

Food: They have a limited menu of unimpressive sandwiches, pizza, cheeses, They also allow you to bring in your own food if you want. I wouldn't recommend coming here just to eat

Value: Depending on what you get, most of the beers are around $4.00 - $5.00, with the rarer offering at about $6. Overall, a good value for the quality of the product.

If you are coming here to have lunch and maybe a beer or two, this is not your place. But if you want some of the best and most unique beers in the state and country, this is definitely the place. Only a few miles from Dragonmead and Champane's liquor store is right around the corner, which make this a nice little afternoon trip.

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.
