Very much geared toward the tourist with shotglasses, Tshirts, a tiny grocery market, and other touristy offerings. Staff doesnít know two licks about Beer, however the beer selection is quite good! A good number of Michigan beers (North Peak, Bells, Founders, Sark Horse, Shorts) a handful of other micros (and some macros) and a decent number of German offerings as well. Lager Mill is #1 in Frankenmuth but there are some very solid offerings here. BTW the schnitzel upstairs is deadly!

Great little shop in the basement of the inn. They have a nice selection of regional beers as well as many additional micro brews from across the country. Definitely worth a stop if you are in Frankenmuth.

Nice little shop with singles! Hard to find a place that breaks up everything into singles and has a half way decent selection of local beers and some imports. Didnít buy anything, but it looked decent. Not a lot of breadth.

What a little gem! Located in the Castle Shops in the basement of the Bavarian Inn. Mostly a well-lit wine store, there is a nice little area for beer, which I would consider appropriately dark with spot lighting. Very nice selection of rare, import, and local beers. Most notable are the Hofbrauhaus beers and the Bavarian Inn house beverages (the dark beer and root beer). If I remember correctly, thereís a percentage discount if you buy a mixed 6-pack. Even if there isnít a discount, it makes for a nice option if youíre interested in sampling a wide range. They also stock a wide range of glassware, as well as a large selection of Hofbrauhaus merchandise. The only reason for the low service rating is that the attendants stay behind the counters for the most part and arenít able to offer much advice if youíre looking to try a particular style. Otherwise, theyíre very friendly. Highly recommended if youíre heading to mid-Michigan or live in the area. About an hour or so north of the Detroit metro area.
