The main draw of Kuhnhenn are their beers. They usually have a very good selection on tap and have growlers and some bottles to go. Their focus is clearly on their brewing and not on their marketing or distribution, which explains the high quality of their beers but a sometimes frustrating inability to find their beers or information about the next release.
After going here a few times, my impression is that the service is hit or miss. One time service was slow because the bar was packed (understandable), a few times the bartenders have been very friendly, and once our server acted as if she was allergic to tips.
Although they serve food here, it is probably best to eat first and just come for drinks. After arriving in town late at night, I ended up splitting a few items with my friends, and the consensus was that everything fell somewhere around forgettable. The pizza seemed like it was a frozen pizza warmed up. Having low quality food is so noticeable because the beers are so amazing by comparison, and at this point I expect a high correlation between the two.
One odd thing about their beer pricing - it costs pretty much the same to get a bottle to go as it does to drink the beer on tap.
The atmosphere here is fascinating. Being located in an industrial area outside of Detroit, the bar brings in a true variety of characters. In the afternoon, locals relax with a few beers, and the younger crowd on the weekends includes beer geeks, frat boy types, and hipsters, mixed in with the locals.
This is one of the few places I almost always stop when I am in town.

Un grand local qui maximise comme il peut son potentiel. Le côté boutique à l’entrée a plusieurs produits maison à part la bière mais je n’ai pas eu l’occasion de les essayer. Tout est grand dans cette salle, le bar, les tabourets, le plafond et la liste de fût. Un passage obligé si on passe par Sarnia.

Stopped in here on a Friday around noon and the parking lot was pretty empty. We were the only folks in here for a little while. We were mostly here for meads, but it turned out they only had their Orange Blossom available at the time, so that was a bit of a let down. Fortunately, though, their tap list was excellent. I was able to try a lot of great beers, and several that I had actually wanted to try for some time. Service was great, the staff was all knowledgeable, and pricing was decent. They do have a small food menu, but we did not order anything as we already had a lunch destination picked out. I hope to make it back here some day.

Stop #1 on our brewery tour. Quite crowded when we arrived but we got a table easily. Good draft selection of a lot of their products, including the Raspberry Eisbock. You can get a flight of five of any of their beers. They had a special menu for Polish night that looked good, but I don’t think they normally serve food. Cool atmosphere.

The always impressive Kuhnhenn is definitely towards the top for beer quality among Michigan locals. Always pretty busy and a loud fun environment. The huge rotating list of taps is a big plus. Not much selection of food as they have a little popcorn popper in the corner and some cheap pizza yet outside food is welcome. It’s a very laid back place with great beer. Always an event around the corner. A great place if you’re looking for a great drink.

Ambiance: Kind of a boring place, has a U shaped bar with tables all around but kind of dumpy.
Service: Bartenders were okay, hard to grt a beer when it wasnt overly busy, kind of hard to ask about beers
Selection: They had a large selection of different beers/varieities..only one mead.
Value: Beers were a little pricey for the lack of quality but horrible
Overall: Was really disappointed, kind of a dumpy place and the beers were slightly over priced.

A bit out of the way this large boxy tap room is basic but functional in a very decent way. Lots of bench seating and a huge U bar without distractions. Service was great and friendly, even though they were packed and it may have slowed a bit. Popcorn and samplers were available. Prices were decent. A good place to go with tons of taps. A tickers delight.

A place that I frequent, & gladly. Kuhnhenn makes some damn delicious beers; you won’t always find heavy hitters like BB4D, Bourbon Barrel Barley Wine or Raspberry Eisbock on tap, but even their normal mainstays & seasonals are varied & delicious... DRIPA, Fluffer, Penetration Porter, Kuhnieweizen, etc... You’re sure to find something you like. The only food includes microwave pizzas, chips, & popcorn, but recently they’ve been having an outside company, Detroit BBQ, smoke all kinds of delicious meats & sandwiches outside on the weekends. The staff is friendly & service is great when things are slower, but things tend to get mucky when they’re busy - a few extra servers or tenders wouldn’t hurt. Bottle releases can be chaotic but they always thrown on great kegs & awesome tap lists for special events. One of my favorite breweries - I love this place!

What to say about this place that hasn’t already been said. The atmosphere is nice and the selection is great. No real menu, but food trucks and sellers stop by. The biggest limitation is the service; it’s a bit understaffed, and there are hospitality issues having brewers behind the bar. Still, a must-stop if you’re in the area.
