Stop #228 on my world brewery tour.

Located in a nondescript building on an interstate access road. Almost feels like you're headed into an auto parts distributor shop. The medieval interior reminded me of the Excalibur hotel and casino in Vegas.

Dragonmead has more beers than any other brewery I've ever visited. The best part is they are all well done. Our group of three shared a couple five beer samplers where you write the beers in ink on glossy stock so you don't ruin your sampler memento - excellent touch. We had...

Sampler 3
IPA, raspberry wheat, barleywine, Baltic porter, rauchbier

Sampler 1
Kolsch, nagelweiss, apricot wheat, hot pepper ale, cream ale

Sampler 2
trippel, abbey, quad grand cru, Belgian dark strong, golden (Belgian strong I think).

You can peek in and see the brewing operation on the way to the bathroom. It looked as if they did a lot of smaller batches.

The only downside to the place was the spotty service during our visit around 2:00 on a Friday. The bartender kept disappearing but did a fine job when she was there.

I would definitely recommend Dragonmead for any Michigan brewery tour.

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.
