On Valentine’s Day, my wife and I drove from Northwest Indiana up to southwest Michigan for the day. One of the stops we made was Greenbush Brewing (oh yes…I adore my wife…she doesn’t drink beer, but she was all good with stopping in!), a place I had always wanted to visit.
I have enjoyed many Greenbush brews over the years here at home, with Dunegras and Yogi Borealis being my favorites. But I had always wanted to check out the taproom, and while I knew it was a relatively short drive from home, it was even easier to get to (despite the snow!) than I thought. I enjoyed the vibe of the place…there was a nice size crowd (we had to wait quite a while for a table…which almost tried my wife’s understanding…did I mention I adore my wife!)… nice family atmosphere… and I lucked out because it was “Bacon Week” there!
So while we waited for a table, I enjoyed a glass of Juicebox Hero, which instantly became one my new Greenbush favs. Juicebox Hero is a great, citrusy APA, with strong orange and lemon notes. Great brew! Later, accompanying my order of delicious bacon pierogis, I enjoyed an Indispensable IPA, which is a selection I have seen locally at home but I had not tried up until then. Another hit with me. I definitely will be looking for this again, when I visit some of my favorite local craft beer stores.
Overall, it was an fun stop on an enjoyable day… now that I know how close the place is, I’ll have to come when I can stay longer. Cheers, Greenbush!
