I was in frankenmuth to visit bronner's christmas wonderland at request of my wife. So, I thought we'd check out this place. First let me tell you that the city of Frankenmuth is a tourist trap destination and the town itself was packed, so be it with this place as well. I wanted to walk out but wifey persuaded me to stay since we spent so much time finding a parking space. So, we waited for a half hour to get seated and then we were placed at the bar squashed in between other dudes. The seating help had no empathy for the people who had to wait, they were very matter of fact and did not care. However, the service was fast once seated and they had a large selection of brews. The food was over priced and many of the beers had the same flavor even tho they had different names. They advertise themselves as the oldest brewpub in america, but I don't think that's true. The place was very large inside and either its built to look like an old place or perhaps they redid an older building. Pretty much a hipster place and the parking was difficult as it is anyplace in the city. One bright spot was their berleiner weiss, not bad. If it wasn't so crowded, I think my experience would have fared better. I had a few drafts but they did have flights of 4 small 3oz glasses for 12$. They also did have bottled cases of their beers for $30 each.
A large brewery/taproom/brewpub in downtown Frankenmuth. A dark wood interior with a large bar, TBs throughout and plenty of seating. Also a nice outdoor area overlooking the river. Service was decent. Seemed like 16ish taps with flights of 4 available. Food was pretty good and prices weren't bad. A decent spot.
Another place worth visiting in Frankenmuth. Good service, not just their beers but some macro and BMC-ish stuff for non-craft drinkers. Decent liquor bar for non-beer drinkers along with the wine. I never had bad service in here. Always clean, if I lived closer, probably could go back.
We visited the brewery in a rainy day. There was a patio with the river view we couldn’t enjoy. The food was quite alright and the service friendly. They had 18 beers on tap and they serve flights. Next time I feel Christmassy and visit Bronner’s I will definitely pay them a visit again.
Walked down here from my hotel for dinner and a few cold ones during the hottest day in summer for this part if the world. Sat at the bar. Service was quick, beer was mediocre, food was ok, price was alittle high. Resturuant was way to hot.
Loved this place. It was large, spacious and clean. Liked that you could watch them making the beer while you were sitting at the bar. I liked all the beers, some more than others. The appetizer I had was tasty. I’m just sorry that they can’t ship.
I’m 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 patron’s 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 ....
