I've been going to this place at least once a year since 2003, and i've never written a beerfly review. Time to get to it!
This place is off the Main St. lane of Frankenmuth shops and stores, right near Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. Nice presentation, as the decor fits the German themed town very well.
The atmosphere is do-able. Nothing special, but not lacking either. A nice view of the brewing facilities from a dozen or so booths was well thought out. An appealing bar is also noted, with plenty of taps and seats.
The overall quality of the beers is quite good, considering this place is nearly unknown. Each beer was appropriate to the style and well crafted. It's obvious the guy making this beer cares about quality. The food is very good as well, with a wide variety of items from Surf and Turf, to burgers, brats and even Italian. Nice.
Service was cool. The waitress seemed to know about the beers and the menu, and offered man options when it came to food preparation. Definitly a step above what i've had at some other establishments.
Selection is good. You'll find something for everyone, including the kids (kid's menu is available). I could eat here several times a week and have something totally different each time. I like that.
Quality of the food was very good. I had the weekend lunch buffet, and every thing I had was great. The brats, beans, salads, potatoes, chicken, it was all very good and easily worth the 10 bucks I spent on it.
Overall value is great. Good beer, good prices, good food and good service. Wish this place was closer to my home. If you're on I-75, it's a 5 jot off the highway. Give them a try nextime you're in Mid-Michigan.

Took family here and really enjoyed the experience. Food was tasty and beer selection was great. Sausage and cheese was big hit. Server was very friendly and brought us a number of tasters, as we are from out if town, and not familiar with their selection. Really liked the decor, felt like we had gone back in time. Busy on weekends.

Family friendly with a buffet. The buffet was squeezed into the middle of the walking isle so it was a pain to either use the buffet or make way to the restroom. The food was good and the beer selection was outstanding. Worth the visit for the beer but would not return just for the food.

Atmosphere- If your looking for a place that is going to enchant you and screams brewery then you are going to be disappointed. This place feels like a hotel restaurant. Very bland feel to it and the carpet is worn and old.
Quality /selection- They had at around 12 beers on tap of a variety of styles. The quality of the beer is better than I expected. Some of their beers will surprise you in a good way some in a bad way, but more good than bad. The ones I liked best were Woody's light quite possibly the best tasting light beer I have ever had to this day, Grateful red- light, flavorful, but lacking body, and all of their stouts were solid. Boyband barlywine to this day is the most dreadful beer I have ever tasted.
Service- the bartender was pretty knowledgeable about the beer, friendly, and honest. She told us the food is not that great here and recommended the burgers at Frankenmuth's Brewery.
Overall, I liked this brewery. Their beer is average or slightly above average. Very affordable had a flight of ten beers over forty ounces of beer for under $12 which is a great price. If your looking for beer in Frankenmuth this is the brewery I would recommend to go to.

I stopped into Black Forest Brew Haus, during a slow period for a late lunch. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. The food had some German themed items which is great for the location (Frankenmuth) I would recommend the sausage sampler and the prime rib.
The beer menu is very nice, and very affordable. I tried a few different beers and really enjoyed the Lost Sailor IPA, great balance, and flavor. I was able to get a growler at an affordable price as well. The staff was friendly and made it easy to decide which beers to get, our waitress even suggested a few food pairings.
If you are going to Frankenmuth be sure to stop here, for a smaller and in my opinion more enjoyable experience than Frankenmuth Brewing ( although that place is good too)

The actually resturant is quite good if you're into German food, which I am. If you're not and you get something that isn't German, well then it's pretty normal. The beer; it's really why yo go.
Want a few Growlers? Well, you can get one from Black Forest for 15 to 25 dollars, full of beer. Once you've gotten one, you can refill it for as cheap as 10 to 20 dollars. Most places I've ever been have charged twice that.
Also, their selection of beer is always changing. Which is cool. They have a stout and a red or two that are always on tap, but often have barelywines of IPAs introduced for short times throughout the year. This really is a great little place. Underrated if you ask me.
Also, damn good pizza.
