Right over the IN-MI border, in little lakeshore toursity town that kind of reminds me of Galena, only if Galena had stuff in it that was worth visiting.
The inside is really cute, tin and woody with a good number of vintage beer things, including a badass NattyBo sign. The vibe overall is touristy and caucasian, with a good mix between hip youngsters and sun-burned older people just coming off the lake. Not exactly my scene, but there's nothing wrong with it.
The aesthetic is okay but a little Dave Matthews-y: it appeals to frat boys who only recently turned over to superficial hippiedom. NPR-type music blasts on the stereo. Some bartenders have whiteman dreads.
The food was okay but not great. The beer was... inventive? Nothing was normal, there were tons of offerings, an excellent pricing scheme, and a couple of the beers I tried were outta sight good.
You'll be hearing about these guys before too long, so you better stop by now, before they get packed.

This place is great. It's pretty sleepy in Sawyer so Greenbush is always packed. Their tap selection is good and I am always shocked at how good their beers are for such a small place. The food is astounding. I am not usually a fan of BBQ but loved it here. It's kid friendly which is nice when you still want good beer but can't find a baby sitter.
It's right off the interstate so definitely stop by if you ever have chance.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon, so of course the place was packed. But the atmosphere was great and it is such an awesome place to stop in and have a pint over some awesome food! Because of the timing and the crowd, the guys behind the bar were running like mad to keep up, but we didn't really wait on anything. The beer and food both came very quickly, and despite being slammed, everyone was very polite.
Since this place is right off the highway and close to the MI/IN border there was a nice diverse group of people from IL, IN, and MI hanging out or passing through. We had to wait maybe five minutes before some people gave up their spot at the bar to us and then proceed to stand and drink with us for a few minutes.
Their beer is very good and reasonably priced. Had a Dystopia and Brother Ben and I'd recommend both to anybody who likes craft beer. The food was amazing! Had the brisket mac and cheese and my mouth is now watering thinking about it. If you are passing through Michigan, you must stop off exit 12 on 94 and check this place out.
