If you enjoy trying multiple selections of beer this is for you. The food selection is very good as well so come and enjoy. You can also purchase beer to go, some in six packs and some you can get multiple sized growlers to go.

Although they don't take reservations, our party of 16 was seated quickly and given a separate room for dinner. The food was served hot and quite quickly. Our server was terrific, attentive to our needs and very friendly. Thanks!

The Brewery is one of our favorite places to visit in Frankenmuth. We never miss it. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is friendly. Typical pub fare. A little overpriced but great beer selection. Love the Buffalo Egg Rolls!!
