During warm months, the windows open for an outdoor covered patio experience. The wood and brick accents provide a unique glow to the room that creates a beautiful place to celebrate this sacred and precious experience!

The River View at Frankenmuth Brewery is one of the only venues in Frankenmuth that offers a rooftop outdoor wedding location. Two ideal arch positions for a wedding ceremony for up to 150 guests allow you to choose the best outdoor wedding experience!

Flexible Room Options

The River View venue space is comprised of two adjoining rooms: Hops and Barley. The Full River Room is Hops & Barley combined, accomodating up to 240 guests. Most couples choose this unique space for their entire wedding celebration. Hops can hold up to 100 guests sitting theater style for a ceremony; then, guests enjoy a gourmet dinner in Barley while our staff converts Hops into a dance floor for the post-dinner celebrations.

Each room can also be reserved individually.

Hops Room- Private entrance opens to a breathtaking view of the winding Cass River and Frankenmuth Covered Bridge. Hops accommodates groups of 50-80, depending on table size and setup configuration. Our professional setup team transforms the space from a ceremony room to a dining room. Following dinner, this makes an ideal dance and celebration space. Many choose Hops for their showers, as well.

Barley Room- Expansive wood bar and a gorgeous view of the winding Cass River. Perfect reception space for up to 160 guests. Condenses with natural architecture are for smaller groups looking for a private bar experience.

Additional spaces available:

Red Sky Room is a private, unique indoor area that overlooks the restaurant and comfortably holds 25 people. Ideal for rehearsal dinners and more casual gatherings.


Red Sky Patio is an opportunity to elevate your experience! This breath-taking rooftop patio holds up to 150 in a theater-style setup design.

Frankie's Patio is an enclosed four-season patio on the restaurant level, which holds up to 100 guests. Enjoy a casual, locally inspired menu and Frankenmuth Brewery-hosted bar service for your event.

The Doxie Room is a room within the restaurant with doors to close for your group. It holds 25 comfortably. Perfect for rehearsal dinners or for spouses to gather during a shower.

Absolutely Everything We Wanted & More!

We were so happy with The Frankenmuth Brewery for our wedding! Lindsey, our wedding coordinator, was incredible from start to finish. I sincerely appreciated her sharing the options that could work with our budget, her organization for our big day to keep things timely, and so much more. The food and drinks were delicious, the staff were great, the venue was gorgeous, and all of our guests truly enjoyed themselves (and loved having hotel options right across the street)! I highly recommend this venue!

Staff was perfect. Venue is beautiful.

Frankenmuth Brewery was excellent all the way around. Highly organized and professional. We threw them a few curve balls and they rolled with them. Kara and Katerina were our coordinators they were excellent. Would recommend the venue to anyone. The bar tending staff and wait staff was also excellent. I can’t think of a single complaint.
