While making my summer trip out west (from mid Michigan) I made a stop at this brewery. I tried their beer at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange and fell in love with it. So I felt it necessary to make a stop since it was along the way.

Very cool vibes coming from this place, it was pretty hard to find for starters. When we entered the place the true scale of it kicked in, the place is tiny to say the least. They had a wonderful selection of beer for being a brewing that doesn’t even bottle yet, and their beer is pretty top notch. I decided to go with the beer I had already tired and I wish I didn’t cause it wasn’t as good as I remember it but still great. I wanted to try another beer but my friend were kind of wanting to get back on the road so we left.

The service was ok especially for it being so packed. The guy who seemed to be running the bar at the time was a bit of a jerk. I look pretty young and I don’t think he took me for a beer drinker, so he was kinda sending me and my friends condescending vibes the whole time we where there. Asking of if we are used to drinking high quality beer and stuff like that (generally not taking us seriously). That is really my only beef with the place.

Great place, hard to find their beer since they don’t bottle, so I would recommend stopping by if your close.

I was utterly blown away by the friendliness, great beer, and overall chill-ness of the annex. The BBRIS was yowza.

They always have something good on tap and their BBQ is ridiculously good. I highly recommend the BBQ sampler, especially the brisket. Greenbush has some of my favorite beers and it's been awesome seeing them grow up. From a small tasting room to the brewpub and annex they are today I can only imagine where they are headed next. A must for anyone traveling trough the area. It's right off the highway in Sawyer, MI. If you do plan on going I suggest getting there early as seating is minimal and it always fills up.

I swung by Greenbush on the way back from the 4 Elf party. By the time I got there I was burned out and tired from the bottle share that took place 12 hours ago! The atmosphere was great, server friendly and the food was amazing. If you ever go there you must try the Mac N Cheese with brisket.

This brewery is very eclectic and reminds me of the pre-prohibition era when every town had a brewery and every town had a ma and pa type of hardware store. The food is solid and their BBQ is highly regarded by many of the locals that I talked to. I had a sampler when I was there and a pint of Doomslayer which was awesome. They make some awesome beer and have a really laid back atmosphere that makes it so you don't want to leave. I will definitely be coming back again!
