The service was the worst I have ever seen in any place! It was the first and last time I was in this place... and the beer was not even close to being ok. The ambiance was bad. It doesn’t matter because they don’t even care. I am surprised they are still open. No one I know has every gone back. It was sad.
I live in MI so Kuhnhenn is a regular brewery I frequent. The beer is as legit as it gets. The ambiance is fun and inviting. As you walk in, there is open high top tables that encompass the entire bar.
Don’t bother with food here because it is all about the beer.
Overall, there is a reason the brewery is rated in the top 11 breweries in the world.
I see how people say hit or miss. Had some waitress make sure we cash out before her shift ended (even though she left nearly an hour later) just so she wouldn’t lose the tip. Once we payed, she proceeded to essentially ignore us.
Otherwise: Food isn’t great. Decent chicken wings (no ranch or blue cheese available at all), everything else is obviously frozen Meijer products popped in the oven. Complementary popcorn is nice (although, the long, kinky black hair I found in mine was a downer).
Beer selection is broad, though the wine selection is about 5x broader. They play to the seasonals, so don’t go in the summer if you’re a bitter beer fan (as in, only one stout). Prices are pretty good, although they place limits on the high alcohol content beers (I had a waitress tell me this is generally depending on how tipsy a customer feels) and the samples (you pay for) come in little plastic cups.
Decent place, but, I’d recommend Dragonmeade Brewery down the street for a better experience overall.
Great beer, if you can get a server. I have been coming here for a few years now and the service seems to get worse every time, usually I’m waiting anywhere between 10-20 minutes with an empty glass when they’re not even busy.
I visited Kuhnhenn on the date of their tenth anniversary. It was packed but we were still able to find an open table. Unfortunately the cookout food was gone by 4pm. They had many beers to choose from when I was there, however i hear that that is not usually the case. Sometimes my friends will go there and say that they don’t have any beers to go, and very very few on tap even. As they are a smaller brewery I will let this slide as they probably can’t accurately judge when they will be running out of things. The downside of this place has to be the cost. The beers are great, but the Raspberry Eisbock is $13 for a 6oz bottle. I would highly recommend the Solar Eclipse, it is a 19% stout, and a 12oz bottle will run you $7. I will be back for sure.
It’s beer and peace, a hopping heaven. It feels like home to Europeans minus the smoke. Service is superior ask for Adam Rocca service can only equate his. Excellent ever changing selections they are truly the Jedi’s of brewing. You can brew your own beer too! Food is gourmet cheese, meats and crackers, matched with free popcorn. Play a game of Euchre and cherish an exceptional brew.
Of course, the beers are great, the relationship between the brewery and the brewers guild from the BOP is really cool. Depending on whats on tap you’ll be pretty to very happy with the selection. FZood is variable as their basic menu is sometimes complemented by excellent specials. If you’re in the area it’s a cant miss. If you’re not in the area, stop by for festivities.
These guys make good beers, but the selection is inconsistent. They are often out of their signature tap Looney Kuhnie. Most of their beers are high ABV, so watch out for law enforcement. THey need some lower ABV, daily drinkers on the menu. That said, the double IPA is awesome. A couple of the barmaids seem rather disinterested, maybe even aloof, a couple are just great. Mary (?) is the tops.
Visited Kuhnhenn's for the first time for Winter Solstice so (potentially) a bad day to rate them. Ambiance is basic, although I did enjoy seeing their various medals hanging from the rafters. Service was understandably rough considering the day but they did a great job bringing in additional (good) people to help... the keg of water was a nice touch too! Tap selection was adequate to good with only a few bottles for sale already sold out. I hope to come back on a 'normal' night to enjoy some fellowship!
Been a few times now and if you want interesting high gravity beers...this is your place. They also had other beers that also were not of the high gravity variety, that were also quite good. They allowed a few people I was with a few free samples of different beers, which is always appreciated. Will definitely come back again, even though it is quite a hike for me.
