Stopped by with a bunch of beer-appreciating friends on a cold Saturday night. Smallish, narrow, but long barroom was busy but not crowded. The servers hooked us up by putting some tables together and even asking another small group to move! Very nice. The walls were adorned with medieval-ish paraphernalia and clever posters. Nice lighting, cozy atmosphere, 2 real dartboards, and lots of games scattered about. Not smoky at all (thankfully!). The beer menu is huge and almost unbelievable. They listed 36 beers and one mead and our server disappointedly informed us that they were out of 3 of the beers. Only 33! Prices were reasonable and they offered a 5 x 6 oz. sampler tray for $8.50. All the beers I sampled were well-made and good. A few were forgettable, but several were very good. I especially liked the Copper Shield and the Dead Monk. They have limited food options: pretty much just crackers, pretzels, and some fried snacks. The venison sausage with cheese and crackers was tasty and went well with the rauchbier. They also let you order food from nearby restaurants for delivery and you can even bring in your own! All in all a very pleasant experience and well worth a stop if you're in the Detroit metro area.

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.
