Frankenmuth Brewery - One of Michigan's Oldest Businesses?
Frankenmuth Brewery should perhaps have been on my list of Michigan's oldest businesses. I say "perhaps" because - though it was founded before 1870 - it had closed for short periods of time over the years: after a fire destroyed it in 1973 and after tornado ripped down its buildings in 1996. But Frankenmuth Brewery is back in business, brewing and distributing craft beer as well as running a restaurant and banquet hall. Even with the down years, Frankenmuth Brewery has still been in business for well over 100 years.
