Let’s give a big ol’ Baconfest Chicago WELCOME BACK to the great folks at Greenbush Brewing Co. They are joining us on April 20th as one of our Beer Sponsors and we are thrilled to have them in the room pouring an assortment of craft flavors. Their beer is simply awesome and there could not be a more jovial group of folks to have in the room with whom to celebrate BACON. Read more about them below.

Good ideas often start over beer. Always looking to take a good thing too far, we sat down over a beer (or two) and 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. 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-sized kitchen pots and as many buckets as we could find, we jumped in feet first. Once a week, every week. This led to brewing twice a week and handing out bottle after bottle to everyone we knew. Now, several years later and with a new 15 bbl version of our banjo burner and kitchen pots, we’re befuddling the beer judges and converting the masses. One pint at a time.
Now about to enter its third year of existence in the little town of Sawyer, Michigan, Greenbush crafts beers with names like Anger, Closure, Mammoth and Doomslayer—and with nothing under 6% ABV, the monikers are indicative of the styles. The brewery serves beer and food out of its Sawyer taproom seven days a week and currently distributes throughout the state of Michigan, in metro Chicago and Northern Indiana.
