Here we are again, back to the beginning of another month. Funny though, day 31 to 1 sure doesn’t seem like a reset; day number 307 on the year sounds much more like it. As we head further into the fall, we’re set to continue our awesome series of 22-ounce bomber beer releases. Hopefully you already got a few bombers of Rage and Barrel-Aged Dystopia (if not, excuse me, but, what the hell are you waiting for?)–there are also more awesome bombers coming down the pike, starting with Barrel-Aged Cabra Perdida around Thanksgiving and Delusion right before Christmas. These babies will make great gifts or additions to your own beer cellar.
Speaking of gifts… we’re working on creating some awesome Greenbush gift baskets for the holiday season. There will be four different packages available at different prices, ranging from $25 to $100, customizable to your liking. We hope to have them first available for purchase before Thanksgiving. We’ll definitely post about them on Facebook when ready to go!
Last thing before we get into the specific happenings of the month, we’re already getting close to the release of our Winter seasonals. Some of them are even fermenting already. Get ready for Jadis (Winter White Ale), Apathy (Oatmeal Stout), Mammoth (Weizenbock) and Ursus (Winter Olde Ale) to start hitting the taps right before Thanksgiving. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to have these great beers back on the board at Greenbush (and in distribution to the rest of our network!).
Next week we’re teaming up with Journeyman Distillery for an epic dinner at LaSalle Grill. Anyone who attended our first beer dinner there knows how fantastic their pairings were. Tickets are $75 and include hors d’ouevres and four courses paired with Journeyman cocktails and Greenbush brews plus an after-dinner bourbon whiskey tasting. Check out the menu below, then call 574.288.1155 or go here to make reservations immediately.
Tuesday, November 13: Brew & View at Greenbush Brewing Co.
Great news, we’re hosting our first Brew & View! November 13 at 8 p.m., we’ll turn down the lights, pop some corn (potentially) and start the show. We will kick it all off with Spaceballs–an absolute classic, if you ask any of us.
Thursday, November 15: Brewer’s Table Dinner at Greenbush Brewing Co.
[UPDATE 11/6: this event is sold out! If you didn’t get a ticket, fear not, there will be future Brewer’s Table Dinners at Greenbush.]
Join us on the evening of November 15 as we host our very first Brewer’s Table Beer Dinner, where 12 ticket-holders will spend the evening with the owners of Greenbush for a five-course meal and beer pairings plus a welcome beer and small bite. Tickets will be $75 each, first available to mug clubbers on November 6 and then released to the public (if still available) on November 7. Keep an eye out for more information coming very soon on how to purchase a ticket for this awesome event. And if you don’t get one this time, fear not, there will be future dinners like this at Greenbush.
Saturday, November 17: Michigan Brewers Guild Enthusiast Tour at Greenbush Brewing Co.

The tour is limited to 20 people and RSVPs should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about becoming a MBG Enthusiast, visit the Michigan Brewers Guild website.
Wednesday, November 21: Greenbush open late for Thanksgiving Eve
We’re planning to stay open until 11 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21 to welcome everyone who’s coming home for Thanksgiving. It’s going to be a great week at Greenbush, so we hope to see you all here!
Thursday, November 22: Happy Thanksgiving! Greenbush is CLOSED.
Another awesome collaboration beer dinner is coming your way toward the end of the month. If you don’t know Old Town Social, you should know that one of their specialties is incredible house-made charcuterie. That alone makes this beer dinner a match made in heaven between the participating breweries. We’ll be sure to give you more details on the dinner as we get them.
Thursday, November 29: Beer Dinner at Bistro on the Boulevard in St. Joseph, MI
Our last beer dinner of the month is right in our backyard! We’re heading to St. Joe for the next in the Bistro’s monthly series of beer and wine dinners. This one will feature four beers paired with four courses. Details on tickets are forthcoming, but expect the dinner to begin at 7 p.m.
That’s everything for this month (that we know of now!). Lots of happenings are coming up in December too, including the beer dinner at Hopleaf and our much, much, much anticipated 2nd annual Feliz Mazel Tov holiday party at Greenbush. That’s slated for December 8 and will be a ticketed event–many more details to come on that.
