Only 38 beers on tap when I was in on a Friday lunchtime. And a mead. All made in house. Truly a dizzying selection. I worked my way through four half pints - Dragon's Blood Bitter, Wench Water Belgian Pale, Dragonslayer Alt, and a Crown Jewels IPA. All of them were quite good, with the edge going to the Dragon's Blood for my palate. Lots of American, Beligan, and English styles, with a handful of German, Scottish, and a Czech pils. Incredible selection.

Service was very good, with a patient, helpful bartender who was able to answer all the questions I asked, and never let my glass get empty.

Nice atmosphere, with lots of wood, and comfortable seating at the bar. I was, frankly, surprised at how small this place is. Very cozy and inviting though.

Finally made it to Dragonmead after wanting to come here for years. Huge beer selection, as well as house made mead and wines. I tried the Crown Jewel IPA, and another one whos name escapes me. Both were good, not great. They had a few meads on, my wife enjoyed them. Service was so-so, but we had a nice talk with one of the bottlers. Didn't try the food. A slight disappointment, but glad I finally got to give the place a try.

Been going to this place for a long time. Owners are great, staff on the other hand is okay. I've witnessed a few flips in staff, some for good others for bad.

On the upside, beer at this place is great! They do run out of a lot of the favorites and Fridays are nuts to butts.

Atmosphere is cool and laid back, on a weeknight when servers are free they're very willing to assist in helping Budweiser drinkers find the correct beer.

Food is bar junk, used to allow outside food in. Now its greasy sausages, waffle fries and cheese plates.

Never Had the mead here but my Wife and her friends love it. If you're in the area stop in and try a few brews

Located right off a main freeway makes it an easy destination north of Detroit. They usually have about 45 beers on draft. Solid representations of styles. Crown Jewels is a great British IPA, Final Absolution Trippel is a must-have.

Every time I've been the service is fast and friendly, the d├ęcor is awesome (except for the exterior, it's very easy to miss Dragonmead if you're not familiar with it. It blends into the offices/warehouses that surround it). Menu is meat, meat, and fries right up my alley. Beer, wine and mead selection is world class.
