Greetings and welcome to August! We’ve been nothing shy of busy, busy, busy between the general craziness of our taproom this time of year, Summer Beer Fest and trying to get all our of ducks in a row to get our To-Go Store and Beer Garden up and functional for all of you. If you’ve been in the taproom recently you’ve likely noticed our fruit beers are starting to take over a few taps here and there, and don’t you worry– there are more to come including a limited bottle release of our Raspberry Ale, One and the Same! With all that being said, here’s what else we’ve got going in August:

Saturday, August 2: Brew Haven in New Haven, IN

Thursday, August 7: HUGE Tap Takeover at 7 Monks Taproom in Traverse City, MI
7 Monks said it best– “It has been a while since we have done an event with Greenbush so we are overcompensating with 32 beers.” They’re not messing around. Not to mention they are one of the greatest craft beer bars in the country. In other words? Worth. The. Trip. They’ll be tapping the beers at noon and event will go until midnight. Check out our Facebook page for the full tap list coming soon!
Monday, August 18: Beer Dinner at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange in Kalamazoo, MI
Beer dinners are awesome, but tend to be a little on the pricey side. Not the case here! For just $40 (tax and gratuity included!!!) you can get yourself a 5 course meal, each course paired with a different Greenbush brew. I’m gonna go ahead and call this the deal of the summer. Call (269) 532-1188 to reserve your spot today! But really, right now, DO IT! Beer dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Friday and Saturday, August 22 and 23: Microbrew and Music Festival in Traverse City, MI

It’s a block party on First Street in Baroda from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be beer, food, wine, live music, fresh produce and flower stands. Admission is free, but beer will cost ya!
Thursday, August 28: Tap Takeover at Table & Tap in Flint, MI
I know how much we love and value good BBQ and craft beer. If you share these values you’ll totally dig this place. We will be taking over 15 taps there. Come grab a beer and some food!
