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 went to this joint out of curiosity. This place I waited for service and I waited forever to get my order. When I got my order the food was cold. The place was a third full. The waitress I had was to busy flirting.

Stopped by here as we headed north. Did a sampler of 4 beers....mild to strong. Of course, liked some better than others, but there is something for everyone. We were not ready to eat at the time we were there, but the food looked delicious...More

This was a hopping place on a Monday afternoon. They have indoor and outdoor dining plus a great variety of craft beers. The food looked great that others were eating. A place you definitely don't want to miss if u love craft beers!

We eat out a lot. This was one of the worst BQ ever. Bake beans also are terrible. Cheese curds were good. Would not recommend.

Located minutes off the Interstate, Greenbush offers several venues to experience their beer. Recommend the Annex with its outdoor area.

We visited Greenbush when the only food was bar food. This was our first return visit in several years. The lunch was terrific! Of course the beers are flavorful as well, sunspot being my favorite.

Saturday in the summer they were serving brats outside on the patio. Ordered one and enjoyed one of their beers. Quite good. Quite crowded.

My brother loves the alcohol here. I don't drink but love the food. 3 meats and two sides for $17 is what my wife and I got. It's awesome. We've been there a number of times and never had a bad experience

Another stop on the road where we used the Yelp app and scored! Parking is admittedly a challenge and not knowing the layout of the town didn't help us. We finally got a spot and settled into the Clean Plate Club. I ordered a cold...More
