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.

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

These guys have the only brewery game in town and they know it. The bar and restaurant both seem to be perpetually busy. I sampled some of the beers, much to the dismay of the unfriendly bartender, and found them all to be various shades...More

Excellent array of local brews. Food choice is limited, but it's a brewery, not haute cuisine. Great place to hang out and sample well-crafted beer. Opt for the annex across the road.

Good BBQ and decent beer. Nice, friendly atmosphere but noisy. Coffee house across the street and around the corner is nice but only open until 6.
