Owner description: 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.

This is one of the only places in Sawyer to eat. In fact, the annex and other shop take up most of the block. We had our kids with us and it was during the day. We had a 20 minute wait due to there being 8 of us but it was worth it. We sampled different flights of beer which were fun and good. But the food... OMG! The appetizers were amazing and then the sandwiches were savory and delicious. All the meat is cooked there. We were so satisfied and full when we left. It was the best meal of our trip!

There are 3 spots in town to eat and they're all part of this establishment. The other store is a hardware store. Family had brisket sandwiches and they were very happy with their choice. I went for a smoked turkey and it was excellent! Worth the drive from the shoreline towns.

The food here is really good. They are known for their BBQ. The appetizer selection has gotten bigger and that is awesome. The beer is good, but the non beer selection is not very good. It is a ton better than before. The place is super loud and always crowed so be ready to repeat your self and to wait for a table. The place has a good atmosphere and a the staff is always nice. Parking is not too bad the lot and street are usually full but there is a lot about a block away. It is close to 94 making it an easy access stop along your way.
