    Kuhnhenn B&B across the street starts at $490/week. For the low cost of $2,000/month you can make your dream a reality.

    The stuff "left over" the next day was probably orders that never got picked up from Sat. No big deal, they had a shit ton of it last year, just not at the release. Hope it sticks around on draft for a long time this year again.

    Wow you really are a pompous ass...the only thing I said was that people told me BB4D was gone on Sat and when I went on Sun they had more...I had no idea people were not picking up their orders...you may need to see a therapist to help you with your self esteem you Mr Kuhnhenn expert you...just sayin...

    I see a lot of Michigan on Michigan hate. Thought you guys all loved each other and your main goal was to keep FIBs from getting your beer. ;)

    If you're coming for the party, you won't leave sober. Unless you have an extraordinary amount of self-restraint. Party is fantastic, and I would argue there's no sense in doing anything else that day besides spending it at Kuhnhenn.

    Bottle sharing can not happen in line. Kuhnhenns is very strict on it and the Warren police are not a very pleasant bunch about it either.

    B. Nektar meadery -- ~6 miles away. The only place that has more top 10 and top 20 best meads than Kuhnhenns. (according to ate-ray eer-bay -- since BA doesnt rate meads.) Rye barrel Ginger Eye ball in bottles..

    Can anyone tell me about how much Kuhnhenn was charging for 4 packs of bb4d last year? Just curious.

    This will be my first year. Is there anything tapped on Saturday that isn't available on Friday? Also, I read about bottle share not being allowed outside, does Kuhnhenn allow bottle sharing inside during the party?

    No, Kuhnhenn's sells beer, very good beer

    I believe $8 per bottle

    Was thinking of dropping my WAr Veteran friend off at 6am and telling him just to cut in front of the line screaming he is a vet..That way he can get me some bottles...No one will have a problem with that will they? :D
