In this blog, we are going to dig into one of the oldest brewery in Michigan. We are going to take a look at Frankenmuth Brewery which was founded in 1862. In 1987, there was a fire that burned down most of the brewery. This brewery never gave up and their goals they want to have their beers to their fan base. They brew mostly German base beers but this brewery has some American Classic beers. They are brewing in one of the best cities in the Michigan. Here is the first of four beers that will be blog about it. The first to be featured is from Frankenmuth Brewery and it is called Classic American Blonde Ale.
The beer is a clear bright yellow in the glass with a simi-head to it. The smell is of fresh air by a waterfall. The taste is very smooth and refreshing with a nice sweet kick to it. The aftertaste is very crisp and refreshing. This is a very drinkable beer for any season of the year. Most craft beer drinkers normally see Blonde Ales available in the spring to summer seasonal.
Here is a description from the bottle:
Medium bodied classic American ale is made using American malts and fermented at a lower temperature to give it a clean mellow finish. This is a terrific cross-over beer for those who enjoy American ales.

In closing, we dug into on of my favorite Michigan brewery called Frankenmuth Brewery Company. You know me well if you read my blogs. I am very up front and honest. This is my favorite brewery in Michigan. I like many beers around the state from different breweries but this brewery is by far the best one to me. As far as this brew, I never was a fan of this beer style. This beer style is normally to light in body for my taste buds but this one brings something out of this beer style. I am a fan of this American Blonde Ale. This beer is very well made beer and stays true to this classic style but with a American twist. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
