if Kuhnhenn's was in Connecticut, i would be broke. what an amazing place. a small brewery with an associated brew shop, Kuhnhenn's is a craft beer drinkers dream. dozens of different brews available on tap, plus more to go both in growlers or twelve ounce bottles. my girlfriend and i had a pint of the creme brulee java stout and mango tango panty dropper respectively, plus i got a bottle of the bourbon barrel aged barley wine, truly a huge variety. and all at reasonable prices, though the extreme beers are a bit more, they are worth it. the single 12oz of the Bourbon Barrel Aged Barley Wine was $5.

the service was great, friendly and swift, and they seen to know there stuff as they have little bios of the employees of the menu, and they all take turns making a brew.

everything has a weakness, Kuhnhenns has two. not much room, it wasnt a problem when i was there, but it could be at times, not enough to detract from its atmosphere score, and food. what they have is very good. just not a huge selection. not worth complaining about though, imho.

one cool thing, they also have gatherings where you can pay to brew your batch of beer. according to the menu you get about 10 12packs for a little over a dollar a bottle. what a great idea.

as i wrote in my review for one of their beers, if you visit eastern MI and do not visit Kuhnhenn's you are doing yourself a great disservice. enjoy

edit: unfortuantely, they no longer allow takeout of 12oz bottles. that sucks. being young, i cant afford to buy several growlers. if have to just try one beer at a time. i guess ill have to go to the pub more often and drink from tap. oh shucks!

Stopped in here one afternoon fairly early on a Saturday before a high school reunion that I wasn't looking forward to and enjoyed myself enough to actually have fun at the reunion. Staff while not stars on the paying attention to customers they were very knowledgeable. Had the sampler and each one was well described. Good beers and will definitely return next time I am back in town!

I like that this place doesn't try to be anything more than a focus beer hall. Yes, they serve basic bar snacks, which I've never tried, and often have a food truck available outside, but I like that it primarily stays focused on the beer. Less can absolutely be more and Kuhnhenn does it right.

While we've never had great service here, even sitting in the horseshoe around the taps, it's never been awful either. They could exercise a little Dale Carnegie and just be friendlier and perhaps quicker to suggest an offering.

I can't say that the beer is phenomenal but I will say it is very good. I've tried about a dozen different beers here and only found one that I didn't care for--a fruit based beer but I've determined that the style was good and that I don't enjoy fruit beers. The Penetration Porter and the Creme Brule Java Stout were very good but I think where Kuhnhenn really sets the mark is on their higher ABV brews. They pack a punch but anything they do with a bourbon barrel is stellar. I also think the Russian Imperial Stout, Solar Eclipse, and the Brown Ale, Double Nut Brown, are vastly underappreciated.

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!
