Suit Up for the Super Bowl in Michigan’s Little Bavaria


Pair the Big Game With a Big Glass

Beer and football have always been a perfect pairing, and Frankenmuth has plenty of great options where you can get your fill for the big game. To kick off your night like a game winning field goal, sample the award winning ales and lagers at America’s oldest Microbrewery, The Frankenmuth Brewery. The Bavarian Inn Restaurant also has a wide selection of German beer that will quench your thirst, while Michigan on Main has 17 craft selections that were made right here in Michigan. Last but not certainly not least, don’t forget to check out the 20 craft handles at the Zehnder’s Taproom.

With these great options, even if your team is losing, don’t worry and beer happy (responsibly of course)!

Before sampling these great beer options, stop by the Visitors Center to purchase a Bavarian Bierpass. When a qualifying drink purchase is made at one of the participating establishments, your passport will be stamped. Once 15 stamps have been collected, passports can be turned in at the Visitor’s Center for a limited edition t-shirt.

Pick up Party Favorites

You don’t necessarily have to go out to enjoy the Super Bowl festivities. If you would like to stay in and order pizza for the big occasion, Frankenmuth has you covered with places like T-Dubbs, Lazy Dog, and Tiffany’s. If you’re looking to pick up traditional football eatery like wings and barbecue, Slo Bones BBQ Smokehaus is the perfect place to go to tackle your taste buds with flavor. Are wings not your thing? Then trade in wings for Wang’s Bistro, and audible instead for great Chinese and Japanese cuisine.

Frankenmuth can also supply you with the perfect party snacks for your Super Bowl gathering. From various cheese spread and tray options from the Frankenmuth Cheese Haus to zesty brats from Kern’s Sausages or Willi’s Sausage Company.

While there won't be a Michigan team (Sorry Lions fans) in the big game, Amazing Mitten and the Michigan Shoppe are the perfect places to pick up Michigan-Made party favors or a prize for the winner of the Super Bowl square.

With all these great options at your disposal, the ultimate winner will be you, regardless of what the final score may read. Enjoy the game!
