The Frankenmuth Brewery was re-opened under new ownership July 1, 2009 after being closed since Nov. 2006. The Brewery has both a class C resort license as well as a micro brewery license. We have begun distribution to the state of Michigan in kegs as well as serving our patrons in one the most popular destination cities in Michigan, Frankenmuth. We expect to be bottling in small quantities by March 2010.

Our Brewmaster, Jeff Coon, was in no way affiliated with the previous ownership. He brews according to the German Beer Purity Laws and offers six year round beers; Cass River Blonde Ale, Pilsener, Hefewiezen, Red Sky, English IP, & Munich Dunkel. We also offer seasonal brews including; Oktoberfest, Harvest Ale, Winter Bock, & Baltic Porter. As we grow we expect to offer a greater variety of ales & lagers.

Please note that all comments and ratings posted on here pre-2009 have nothing to do with the new ownership.

The Frankenmuth Brewery is a hell of a place in my opinion for many reasons. The atmosphere is exceptionally outgoing and friendly. The food is really quite good, and moderatly priced for those on a budget (try the beer cheese soup, you won't be disappointed). And finally the beer is very good. They have a 5 beer sampler that ranges from light brews to heavy guinness-like stouts. There is a beer for just about every taste. I recommend the Vienna Style lager and the Mel-O-Dry Light. Both are the epitome of what well made micro beer should be. Located on the north end of the main strip, it's worth the stint off I-75 when you are in the area.

Great layout for this microbrewery. Very nice outdoor seating area overlooking the river along with a nice indoor bar area with the brewery's equipment visible. Have always been able to get right in. Food is ok. Selection of food is not very varied. Beer is good for the most part.
