Iím really suprised by some of the ratings for this brewery. I reallly liked it. I think the brewery itself is really nice and in a good location. I also really like their beers. I hope to make a trip back soon.

This review is overdue, we were at the brewpub about a week ago. I still remember the server that poured my last beer and she is the reason for the low rating of this brewpub. I saw two unmarked tap handles and asked if they were empty and was told one was for their black IPA. Later I asked another server for a black IPA and was promptly told they were out of the black IPA, when I told the server one of the untagged taps had the IPA she took my used glass and started filling it with the black IPA. I stopped her and got a clean glass. I wonder what else is done behind the patronís back.

OK beer. Food was decent. Service was bad. I hate waiting 25 min for a table to be seated and see there are more empty tables than full - someone did not staff up correctly. Waitress immediately tells us how busy she is. Food order took forever to come, got our appetizers 2 min before the main dishes. Ordered a beer and saw it sit at the bar for 10 min. At least the bar tender poured it out and gave my waitress a fresh one before bringing it to me. Enough to make me not want to come back ....

Great ambiance with large ceilings and dark wood interior. Food was spectacular as was the service. Great prices and the portions were huge. The beer selection is very limited and none of them are very good. I would go again for the food though.

Beautifully done brewpub with outstanding tiered outdoor seating overlooking the river. Food very good. Not to the bad part - the beer. Little to choose from, so I got an IPA which was served very cloudy and not at all hoppy. I asked the bartender why it so cloudy and he said that they got the lines crossed with the Hefeweizen. He didnít really seem to think that was a problem. Shame...shame...shame.

Nice place, good food, and beers which are just alright. They are solid examples of their styles, but nothing special. We were given a private tour of the brewery, which was cool and informative. I really enjoyed the layout of the brewery and seating areas, and everything was clean. I wasnít very excited about any of the beers in particular, so I ended up with the sampler. I liked the red, and the stout... but they were not particularly impressive.

Very nice Micro Brewery, located in the heart of downtown Frankenmuth on the banks of the Cass River. The building atmosphere was awesome, I went in on a wednesday afternoon and it was $5 growler refill day so I bought a German grolsche top growler and filled it with my favorite brew on tap, the Dunkel! The bartender was very friendly and walked me through a 4oz sampling of each brew they had to offer. I would like to see more bottle selection up front in the retail area. Prices were reasonable and the food menu was diverse. Overall I would highly recommend sampling all the frankenmuth brews, and visiting the Brewery is a must.

(Visited 10/2006): Frankenmuth Brewery is located right in the thick of Main St in Frankenmuth. Parking is tricky as there is only a tiny lot in front. However they have a free valet and additional parking across the street.
The building is pretty and keeps with the German/Bavarian theme that permeates the area. Inside, there is a gift shop at the entrance and the bar/restaurant is in a large adjacent room. The bar is along the left side and offers a closeup view of the brewing equipment.
I was a little let down by the beer situation on my visit. There were only 3 beers available, with everything else either being out (the Dunkel) or not suitable for consumption due to problems with the lines (Dry Stout). They also only had one available beer in bottles (Geyerís). Luckily there were some guest taps to pick up the slack from Victory and New Holland. They also offer their available beers in samples.
Service was as good as could be expected considering how packed the place was. The bartenders were happy to talk about the beers they did have available.
I did not try the food on this visit, but the German fare I saw sure looked good.
All in all I was disappointed with this visit but will definitely give it another shot, as there is obviously potential with this place. Also a good place to kill time if someone else in your group wants to spend 2 hours at Bronnerís.
