Great place for lunch and beer tasting
Large beer and food options. The service was fast. We placed our food order and got our meals within about 15 minutes. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Always came around to make sure we had what we needed and our water glasses were full. Delicious food and great service.

Fantastic Service and Food
We went to dinner tonight and it was fabulous! The server was friendly and wonderful and the meals were so tasty. I loved their kale coleslaw and pulled pork. Absolutely would go again if we are in the area.

Yeah, You Should Eat Here
Great beer, good food, great service. Definitely some good nods to German heritage with their house Hefeweizen and Dunkel beers and giant soft pretzels. But overall great food, beer and atmosphere. There’s also seating on the roof with a river view.

I finally managed to visit on Labor Day and was not disappointed! The food is amazing, variety of beers and the view of the river from the back patio is a wonderful atmosphere. I really appreciate the vegan option of the impossible burger! I just wanted a burger and a beer that day and it was great to be able to do that! I would love to see even more vegan comfort options.

What a great family restaurant. It's not fine dining, but you won't be disappointed. Plan ahead to avoid queues. I love the variety of the menu. Wine and beer are made here. I never managed to save room for dessert. Be sure to buy a t-shirt.

Service was great, great choice of beers. We ordered two Flights, 8 samples in total we also ordered the Gorgonzola Pizza, no complaints. Prices were very reasonable, we ate at 4 other places during our stay and this goodbye was the best. Would definitely go back!

During our trip to Frankenmuth we visited the Brewery for appetizers and drinks! Everything was fantastic. The server was so friendly and helped us narrow down our choices. The ambiance was perfect and there was so much seating. We will definitely be back during our next visit.
