Great little shop.
Perfect for the dads/husbands who take the family to Frankenmuth/Bronners for a nice visit.
Service was outstanding as the fellas working there knew their stuff.
Selection for MI brews was great. Found a couple gems. Good selection for german beers as it is Frankenmuth after all.

Reviewed from notes (when I went out to Michigan back in September):
A/Q/S: Just off of the main street in beautiful German Frankenmuth is the Lager Mill. A wonderful joint full of beer, yes, beer, not wine or other liquors, but beer! There are some wines, and hard ciders but it is mainly beer. Such beautiful beer paraphernalia graces the walls and there is a beer museum just off to the side as soon as you walk in. Its easy to purchase singles and sixers, and some bombers. There is also a pretty decent selection of homebrew supplies, authentic German apparel, beer t-shirts, and glassware.
S: The staff was very friendly and insisted on making sure I didn't need any assistance, however, I usually know what I'm looking for.
F: There isn't any snacks or anything like that, no worries, no need for that.
V: Prices are really reasonable too. Looking forward to going back to Michigan to spend more time in Frankenmuth.

There are so many stores that emphasize fine wines or rare liquor, but The Lager Mill is a beer store! They do, of course, carry a fine selection of Michigan wines, hard ciders, meads, etc. but the focus here is craft beer! The beer selection is awesome, and most of the bottles can be purchased as singles. Their prices are very reasonable and you won't need to worry about overpaying for the latest Founders limited seasonal release!
The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful! If you've heard of a beer and remember a short description of it, but don't remember the name, just ask Tom and you'll surely be pointed to the right (or very similar) beer. If you're looking for a particular beer and don't see it on the shelf, just ask.
The building is really cool! It's actually a historic mill and eventually there will be a beer museum on the other side, but until it opens you can look at some of the artifacts through the large windows inside the store.
They also have a really good selection of homebrew supplies and authentic German apparel, beer t-shirts, disc golf equipment, and glassware!

A quick 15-minute stop at the Lager Mill was all the time I had, unfortunately. Didn't get to see the museum because of the time crunch. Too bad!
An excellent selection of Michigan beers, which is why I stopped in on a recommendation from a fellow BA. I honestly didn't look at their entire selection, as I was on a mission to snag some local brews.
Being from Colorado, we don't get many MI brews, so I had to snag what I could while at the Lager Mill.
The thing that impressed me the most was the customer service I received from Tom Taylor, the manager. He walked me through the selections and broke 6-packs for me so I could snag some singles. And the singles prices were very reasonable too. He said they are trying to provide more singles than in the past.
I would, without hesitation, stop at the Lager Mill again and recommend it to others as well. The building itself is also impressive when you first approach it. Next time I'll have to see the museum.

I stop by this place every time I'm back in town. Each time is like a new surprise and always seems to have a newer/larger selection to choose from.
The Lager Mill has quality products including domestic, craft and imported brew, home brew supplies and kits, German Memorabilia, cigars and much more. For only being open a short time, this store has really provided a quality product that is sought after.
The service is excellent too. I believe the Lager Mill is owned by 3 guys, all of which are very helpful, knowledgeable and really enjoy what they do. Each time I've gone in there I was approached with a smile and they are great with suggestions and pointing things out also.
The selection is quite good also, as they have a nice assortment of different styles, brands and seasonals. I don't think there's been a time in which I've left the place without leaving without buying something new and/or finding what I've been looking for. I rated it a 4.5 only by the fact of it could be a large selection, but that will come in time being that they are still in the somewhat "new" phase.
Overall value is excellent too, bottles are priced well as are six packs.
I definitely recommend this place to all locals and all that are passing through michigans little bavaria, you will not be disappointed!

Very nice store with a brewing museum in the works, but was not open yet on my visit. The store is in an old flour mill I believe.
My visit was only a few weeks after their grand opening. Very nice selection that I am told is still growing.
Price is insanely cheap. I left with some really good bargains on beer and T- shirts from some of my favorite breweries.
Small home brew supply shop. Has all the essentials for a new brewer to get started.
A place I will visit the next time I go for chicken dinner!
