HOURS Sunday - Thursday: 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday: 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Good ideas often start over beer. Always looking to take a good thing too far, we sat down over a beer (or two) and decided that beer itself was a good idea. Of course, not just some easy-drinking, institutional prole beer, but stuff like the beers we'd had at great bars. In short, we wanted beer with flavor. Complexity. Character. Intensity. Not words found in the mass-market lexicon. So with a banjo burner, a bunch of industrial-sized kitchen pots and as many buckets as we could find, we jumped in feet first. Once a week, every week. This led to brewing twice a week and handing out bottle after bottle to everyone we knew. Now, several years later and with a 15 bbl version of our banjo burner and kitchen pots for a brewhouse, we're befuddling the beer judges and converting the masses. One pint at a time. Located in the small lakeside town of Sawyer, MI, Greenbush crafts beers with names like Anger, Closure, Mammoth and Doomslayer-and with nothing under 6% ABV, the monikers are indicative of the styles. The brewery serves beer and a full menu out of its Sawyer taproom seven days a week and currently distributes to bars, restaurants and retailers throughout the state of Michigan, in metro Chicago and Northern Indiana.

Besides an outstanding lineup of house-made craft beers, this is a destination offering great barbeque, authentic gumbo and sandwiches. In a few short years Greenbush has become a Harbor Country tourist destination for good reason.

The friendly taproom staff made this a great visit. They let us taste the beer before picking our pint & there was something for every preference.

Like an old time saloon. Very large bar. Food was ok. Thought the beer selection was limited considering it is a brewery. This place might not be for everyone as the alcohol content is rather high on ALL the beers-intentionally nothing under 6%.

We have been hearing about this place for quite some time, and we finally visited today for lunch on our way home from Chicago. It's right off the highway. What a great place! We ate and drank in the pub. The Annex across the street...More
