Every month is beer month in Frankenmuth! But, because July is National Beer Month, we decided to raise a glass and do a little something extra. We understand that beer is serious business, and because we have so many places to grab a growler or throw back a brew, we figured we should equip our beer-loving readers with a map in case you get lost or overwhelmed.
Warning: Frankenmuth has numerous stops on this beer map. Do not attempt in one evening. Please drink responsibly.
1st Stop: Slo Bone’s BBQ Smoke Haus
With live music every Friday & Saturday night and delicious slow roasted and smoked BBQ, you can’t find a better dinner and beer pairing than Slo Bones! Tip: Grab a beer at the bar and head out on the patio.
2nd Stop: Bavarian Inn Lodge
This one is a bonus two-in-one stop! If you are looking to play a little indoor putt-putt or maybe even karaoke on a Friday night then head downstairs to Ratskeller Restaurant for a pint. If live music seven days a week is more your speed, then stay on the first level of the hotel and go to Lorelei Lounge or sit outside on the Biergarten for an ice cold draft. Either way, you win!
3rd Stop: Michigan on Main Bar & Grill
Michigan on Main has one of the most popular patio spots in town! Sip an ice cold German Lager while enjoying the hustle and bustle of Main Street passing by.
4th Stop: Zehnder’s Restaurant
They have chicken… and they have beer! It doesn’t get much better than this. Head to the Tap Room and order a round of beer for you and your friends and take in the beauty of Frankenmuth’s historic restaurant.
5th Stop: Tiffany’s Food and Spirits
Known for its gorgeous patio, Tiffany’s is the perfect place to enjoy an ice cold beer on a hot summer night. Fun fact, did you know Tiffany’s still has the original flooring and beautiful tin ceiling from 1904 when it first opened?
6th Stop: T-Dub’s Pizzeria & Pub
As if we need to explain. Cold beer. Hot, delicious pizza. TV’s with your favorite team playing.
7th Stop: Prost! Wine Bar and Charcuterie
Don’t be fooled by Wine Bar in the title. Prost (which translates to cheers in German) has numerous of your favorite beers on tap. So sit back and relax by the fire bar while drinking a cold one and say, Prost!
8th Stop: Frankenmuth Brewery
Where do we begin? The unique history, the delicious options, the tastings, the brewery tours, the brand new menu options! There is so much to love about enjoying beer at the Frankenmuth Brewery. They also have the only outdoor patio overlooking the majestic Cass River.
9th Stop: The Old Christmas Station
For a European atmosphere and homemade dishes from a Swiss chef, you can enjoy beer while taking in the moment. This is the perfect place for a romantic date with beer.
10th Stop: Poblano’s Mexican Grill & Cantina
At Poblano’s, it is always a fiesta! Get signature south of the border beer flavors here while delighting in the tastes of Mexican cuisine. We can’t promise a mariachi band, but we promise you will thoroughly enjoy your drink!
Final Stop: Da Vinci’s Italian Restaurant
Da Vinci’s is known for their enormous Stromboli, heaping helpings of spaghetti and meatballs, and all of your favorite Italian dishes. But they also have a full bar, and that includes…beer!
If you are not sick of beer yet, which we doubt you are, the PedAle Trolley is an exciting new option! This 16-person pedal-powered trolley. It’s a fun way to explore Frankenmuth and get some light exercise and fresh air too! Choose from varied two-hour tours: Pub Crawl, River Ride, Main Street Mixer, Attraction Trek and more. Don’t forget to visit the Lager Mill and explore Frankenmuth’s fascinating brewing heritage in the brewing museum. Then shop in the Craft Beer store, featuring over 400 different beers.
