Notes:
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.

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.

I have been here 3 times. Always a wait for subpar beer and food. They do have a good selection of beer and the food isn't bad. My suggestion is to head down the street to Zehenders Chicken place and get their home brewed Red ale or Bock. I would be more than willing to wait 30min for those two!

Old school brew pub. Odor of brewers yeast greets you at the door starting the excitement of a new adventure. The food looks amazing and tastes even better. Add in the mixture of old and tunes completes the package.
A must stop here when in Frankenmuth!

Decided to have dinner here after a day in town with the wife and kids. Saturday evening, so there was a wait of about a half hour. Took the kids to look at the tanks in the meantime, and a waitress offered to get us drinks and an appetizer while waiting for a table. Our waiter was just as friendly. Service was quick, food was good, beer was solid.
The building is great looking inside and out, and if it wasn't so rainy, we could have sat on the patio overlooking the Cass River.
Well worth the stop while in Frankenmuth.

Beer sold by bottle, case, cans, growler. 15 varieties on tap on this visit.

Waitress messed up the flight so what good is it? Slow service. Bad food. All this adds up to a bad beer experience. Won't return and won't try their beers again
