I decided to make a stop here on my way from Chicago to Benton Harbor, Michigan. It’s just a couple minutes from I-94 and real easy to find. I’m glad I stopped. There is a nice range of well-crafted brews and some pretty good bar food to go with it. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and there is plenty of room for customers. You can order beer in just about any volume you want from tasters to growlers. A real nice place.
We were very fortunate to have met a bartender in Ann Arbor who told us Greenbush was a must add to our Michigan craftbeer tour (it was also very nice that they convinced us to stop at nearby Journeyman’s Distillery in Three Oaks). We got there on a beautiful early Saturday afternoon. This place is very nice looking...with lots of wood and cool decorations. There is a patio...but even better...across the street an outdoor area for drinking...and eating from the smaller menu there that includes a lot of grilling (the brewery store is across the street there too). We opted to eat at the bar in the main taproom from the full menu. The food was excellent...so plan a visit to include some. As for the beers...really great...some of the best we had on the trip that were all in one venue...especially loved the Juicebox Hero Pale Ale, the Star Chicken Shotgun IPA, the Closure Pale Ale, and the Anger Black IPA. I think Greenbush is really doing this brewery right...great beers, food, and venue. This is now a new must visit for Michigan...but being so close to Indiana...you can easily include this in a Three Floyds trip (not far from Chicago either).
Re-rate after visit one year later after very bad service the year before. Service had VASTLY improved. They have learned how to properly staff busy summer weekends. Beer selection even more improved. On par with some of the best beer destinations in the state. Food was very good, excellent BBQ.
The sampler is excellent and generous - give it a try. The food is good also. A nice retail store for the beer and Greenbush memorabilia also (nice tulip glass with the Greenbush logo). The beer is good, but not great. Greenbush definitely goes for the "extreme" beers. A good brewery f you like the heavy duty style of beers. But the restaurant/brew pub is definitely worth a visit; the ambience is very good, though hard to describe. Probably helped by being in the middle of nowhere (though not like Shorts in Bellaire MI).
I have been here several times and it is almost always packed. The ambiance is a great take on industrial with exposed bricks and piping. The recent renovation and expansion has significantly increased seating capacity. The service is always quick and friendly. Selection is constantly changing but almost all of their beers are delicious.
I’ve stopped in twice when in the area. Sun. afternoon, very quiet. Sat. night, very crowded, noisy, fun, party atmosphere! Food was ok, but not much of a selection. House brews that I tried were very good. I really enjoyed the Dunegras IPA! 2 thumbs up for that one!
A terrific, comfortable, dining and drinking option in the Harbor Country area. The room is fun and comfortable, the beers (all Greenbush, I believe) are good to very good, and the food solid (my smoked brisket sandwich excellent). A must stop for visitors to the area, and easily in the upper echelon of dining/drinking spots. (Skip Fitzgerald’s door!)
I cannot say enough about this place. To put it simply, Greenbush provides very good beer and food without the pretentiousness of 3F. This place is both comfortable and conversational for the craft beer lover
