This brewery is very unassuming. In fact, if you didnít know what exactly you were looking for, youíd drive right by it 9 times out of 10. But once you find it and step inside, you find the best microbrewery in the Detroit area, with its medieval theme, massive selection of beers, wines and meads, and the flexibility of decent, cheap bar food or the option to bring in your own food or have it delivered to the bar. The drink list can be overwhelming but the staff knows their stuff and can definitely recommend the best beverages. There is an area in the back for darts and games, and some amazing decor all around. My suggestion is to order some pizza from Detroit-Style Pizza Co. just up the street, sit down and grab a Final Absolution Trippel Ale, and enjoy the best beer and the best pizza in the region.

Iíve been here a few times, and plan to visit again, and I really enjoy it. The service is great, and the beer selection is massive. Fortunately they have a good price on their samplers. I would say the beer isnít mind-blowing, and it ranges from excellent to meh, but with so much to choose from thatís bound to happen. The food they have at the brewery is decent, with a free appetizer of pretzels and mustard, and a choice of cheese and crackers, sandwiches with chips, and chicken tenders with fries, among others. You have the option of bringing in your own food, or even ordering food from elsewhere to be delivered. That way Dragonmead positively impacts the local business community. Overall this is a very nice place to go with a group of people, scratch your heads over what beer to order, and just have a good time.

I really like the style of this brewery with the old Celtic/English feel. I also really liked how the beers were classified by country, there were a lot to choose from. I liked all the beers I had and cant wait to go back.

Cool place with tons of taps as well as meads and wines. Pretty good beer, nice atmosphere and pretty good service.

Ah! I love Dragonmead! I wish it was closer to where I live! Great atmosphere--the long horizontal building makes it seem like some medieval pub, especially with the decor. Great beer with amazing selections, fabulous prices. Great place to go and talk, have a few, play some games, etc. A few TVs if you want to watch something, periodic live music. Service canít be beat. Free pretzels and mustard, some decent bar food choices, and the ability to bring in food (weíve brought in oysters and shucked them before!).

One of the largest selections of tap beer from one brewery at one time anywhere. Somewhat hard to find but worth it. Lots of wood and funky decor items like medevil flags and swords. Great place.

Great spot. Looks like hell from the outside, but as soon as youíre in, itís comfortable, well stocked, and easy to enjoy. The castle feel is, surprisingly, pretty well played.

Oops, drove right by the place )at night, not lit up) and took me about five minutes to turn around and get back thanks to the messed up grid of streets that is Detroit. Once I got in, I saw easily the largest selection of brews on tap from a brewpub. It was tough to pick just five for the sampler and the beers were decent in quality. It was hopping on a Friday night and a local performed tunes on the guitar while the game played overhead. The food offerings were minimal but filled the bill and tasted good. Free Pretzels with mustard too. Yay!

(Visited 05/2012): Dragonmead is located on the east side of Warren off 696 on 11 Mile Rd. There is a private lot in front of the building.

Inside there is table seating on the left and a bar that wraps around to the front windows on the right. The interior is dark wood and yellow with hanging lights. Lots of flags, coats of arms, swords on the walls and the like. They have a board behind the bar with tiles displaying what beers are available.

Dragonmead has a lot of beer on tap at any given time, with a couple dozen on our visit. They offer samplers to help you navigate through the extensive list. Some of the selections on our visit included Dragonslayer Alt, Earl Spit Stout, Juggernaut Double Red and Honey Porter. The beers are all decent for the most part but it appears they focus on quantity a little more than quantity.

Service at the bar on our visit was good. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about all the beers.

We did not try any food on our visit.

All in all this is a fun spot to visit given the medieval atmosphere and variety of beers to try.

This place is tucked away along the highway among some industrial buildings. Inside is nice, but nothing noteworthy. The tap selection is top notch, with many styles and 5 beers on nitro. Didnít have any food other than the pretzels they provide which was nice. The staff was nice and laid back. A decent place, but not my tops when it comes to a brewery experience.
