When German immigrants founded the breweries that eventually became Frankenmuth Brewery in 1862, they knew one thing for sure about beer: “It’s good for you.” This motto still steers the brewery today, which operates out of a four-story, 28,000-square-foot building where brewmasters engineer pilsners, hefeweizens, and other beers. Exposed brick and ample brewing equipment dot Frankenmuth’s dining room, where hand-tossed pizzas join Bavarian-style bratwursts with caraway-seed sauerkraut on a menu of hearty pub food. On warm days, an outdoor patio seats up to 250 diners who can admire the Bavarian Belle riverboat as it barrels up the Cass River, then duck inside for a free brewery tour. Frankenmuth Brewery distributes its signature root beer and beers by the keg, bottle, and dewdrop throughout Michigan and across the country.
