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.

Went here on vacation few years back, they had been open for a few weeks only and had 6 or so beers at the time. Great place to stop in if your nearby.

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!
