    I also really wish they’d sell singles but I guess that would hurt them since there’s a 50% chance they fuck up the taste of something

    Not in a rush. If we can touch tips at a bottle pickup I’ll be sure to give you something. ;) ;)

    Did Kuhnhenn outsource the solstice brewing like they have of their new canned releases?

    I can't say for sure who brewed it for them, because I don't know,.. however, the details lie in the packaging of the cans. I hear the cans say brewed and canned in Detroit, not Warren or Clinton Twp, & then the other clue is the full wrap carriers... does Brew Detroit package with these?

    It's good, but still not the DRIPA of old.

    On the Brew Detroit website, it lists Kuhnhenn as one of the brewers for which it does contract brewing.

    What does that say about the production/canning facility Kuhnhenn has (had?) at the newer location? Is it all gone?

    Last time I was there the windows to the production facilities were blocked off‍. Did think the cans were pretty close to the original, but it has been soooo long, so who knows

    Wondering if they sold off the equipment and opted for contracting brewing.
    Getting printed cans is silly. Then again. Kuhnhenn.

    I'm going to be in Port Huron for 5 days or so around Christmas. Any recommendations for breweries or bottle shops close by? I'm going to want to get away from my family for a bit, I'm sure.

    You’re not too far from the lesser known but still fun to visit Superior Lakes Meadery.
