About Greenbush Brewing Co.

Good ideas often start over beer. Always looking to take a good thing too far, we sat down and over a beer (or two) decided that beer itself was a good idea. Of course, not just some easy-drinking institutional prole beer, but stuff like the beers we'd had at great bars. We had frequented places with extensive and varied beer lists. Places with lists 180 items long, all of which we tried twice (not in one night). In short, we wanted beer with flavor. Complexity. Character. Intensity. Not words found in the mass market lexicon. So with a banjo burner, a bunch of industrial kitchen sized pots and as many buckets as we could find, we jumped in feet first. Once a week, every week. We tried to emulate the beers we liked, but soon we were adding a little of this, or some of that and after a while we started having a hard time pegging our beer in a style category. Our first success was a Porter that was mainly porter, slightly stout. We ran it blind with our friends against the porters we liked and people liked it. "We're on to something", we thought. Twenty iterations, modifications and tweaks later it is Distorter, and is still our favorite beer. This led to twice a week brewing and handing out bottle after bottle to everyone we knew. Along the way we screwed up a wheat beer by accidentally making it into sort of a copper ale with a few too many hops. And so Red Bud Ale was born. We had some extra noble hops and threw them in the IPA, and with some tinkering we most certainly had a one-of-a-kind IPA. You get the picture. All of this has firmly cemented our "anything goes" approach to beer making. Our inability to ever get quite within the style guidelines means we may never win an award, but we're ok with that. Now, several years later and with a 90% super-cool/10% Rube Goldberg 7 bbl version of our banjo burner and kitchen pots, we're befuddling the beer judges and converting the masses. One pint at a time. Stop in the storefront and try our mainstays, seasonals and small-batch runs. Not to mention our lab beers, where we continue to screw up one thing or another in search of the next great beer.

Advent Calendars!

It’s official! Our Advent Calendar will be available for order on November 10th, 2015!

As one of our most highly anticipated releases, we want to make sure you get all the right info regarding how and when to order and pick-up your Advent Calendar.

This year, we are only offering the Advent Calendar online. Starting at 6 PM Eastern time on November 10th, 2015, you will be able to order our Advent Calendar off of our website. There is a ONE CASE PER PERSON limit. If you attempt to order a second case, the order will be canceled and you may risk your ability to get a calendar all together. The Advent Calendar is $125 plus deposit. Please register with the name that is on your ID as we will be asking to see all ID’s upon pick-up. We take Discover, MasterCard, and Visa.

Advent Calendar’s will be available for pick-up starting on November 25th, 2015, in our Annex. As mentioned above, everyone picking up a calendar MUST HAVE the corresponding ID to the name that ordered it as well as actually be that person (aka no proxies, only the person who ordered it is able to pick it up). We apologize for any inconvenience but have found that without taking these precautions, sometimes orders get mixed up, and we want to make sure everyone is able to get their calendar.

The Advent Calendar will consist of 25 bottles of beer to be revealed one a day all the way from Dec. 1st to Christmas Day. We ask that you please do not ruin the fun for everyone by revealing online ahead of the schedule what beer is on what day. We all want to have a good time.

We can’t wait to get to Dec. 1st and crack into our Advent Calendars and hope you feel the same!!
