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.

I spent two days on a quick beer tour road trip into Michigan. We toured several breweries and it was interesting to see the growth stages each brewery is going through. Greenbush is a younger brewery, doing great things. Big thanks to Justin who gave...More

It was a beautiful day in MI yesterday. We wanted to sit outside and enjoy a cold beer on an outside venue somewhere in the area. Greenbush has opened a very nice outdoor seating area across the street from their main location. Great place. Not...More

We stopped into Greenbush Brewing and enjoyed sitting out on the side patio for a comfy late afternoon dinner. Delicious food (brisket!) and beer!

I can't help but to celebrate Greenbush for being such a pathfinder in the Southwest Michigan's beer scene. There brews are big, bold, and beyond forgettable. Definitely not for the delicate pallet but their food follows their brazen execution of brewing.

A nice break after being at the Warren Dunes State Park, a cold brewsky! The place was packed, we took the last two seats. We didn't eat there but the food looked great that was passing by us!

My boyfriend and I decided to take as short detour on our way back from Chicago and found this gem. Tasty beer and delicious pizza and cubano sandwich. Love the ambiance and the service was great!

Stylish large taproom, packed out on a week night so evidently popular with locals, with views into the distillery. Enjoyed a quick pint at the bar; can't comment on food as didn't eat there but looked like reasonable bar snack / light bite menu.
