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.

Been to this brewery many times, and just realized that I have yet to review it.

The best part about this place I would have to say is the atmosphere. I enjoy the layout and the spacious view it has. When you walk in your presented with a gift shop and a great interior. When walking into the dining room that vats are the items noticed first as they are to the left of the bar and also behind the bar.The brewery has a nice patio and a few levels to the building.

The brewery has quite a few beers on tap, I believe 6-7 beers that are always available, plus a few seasonals and special occasion beers. The staples are a hefeweizen, a german dunkel, a pilsner, a red ale, a blonde ale and a IPA. Though the selection of beer is suiting for more beer lovers, they can be inconsistent at times and seem to change.

The service also is pretty good, the bartenders do a good job in pertaining to customers needs and also are attentive. The other waitstaff is the same, though that also seems to change depending on the time of day.

Food wise the brewery has a nice assortment, ranging from Pizza, Sandwiches, Fish, appetizers and soups/salads. Pretty much everything I've had so far has been good and enjoyable. Oh and I gotta mention the Pretzel bread with the Horseradish sauce....excellent!

Overall this is a good brewery and has been a reason why I've made many returns. Between the food, selection and atmosphere its very easy to love this place. Only downfall though is the inconsistency of beers and at times service.

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.
