New micro brewery, good food, art gallery in Sawyer

Good Grief! It's February all ready - almost March. I've been remiss about blogging but I've been wrestling with MSG again. Apparently I had such a big dose, over a period of 12 days, that it's taking me weeks, months, to get it out of my system.

Anyway, I spent 10 days down at Harry's, my significant other, and had a restful time. Of course than I had to drive home, 100 miles, so I'm exhausted again, but maybe not as bad as before.

Lots of interesting stuff happening in Sawyer, MI these days. A micro brewery is going to open around March 2. It is called the Greenbush brewing co. and Scott Sulllivan is the Brewmaster. There will be 12 beers on tap and 35 more that will be for sale.

Scott took the old laundry building and has completely renovated it with a brick face, new windows, and brand new equipment. I expect that it will be the start of a whole new chapter in Sawyer.

Next to the brewery is Fitzgerald's. It's a bar and grill. You'll find good food here. I especially like their smoked salmon which is listed on the menu as an appetizer but it's enough for a lunch.

They have many home made salads, chicken pot pie, crab cakes, etc. Everybody eats here. You can drop by the Greenbush brewery and sample a brew, then go next door for a meal. For Valentine's Day Fitzgerald's served a full lobster for $30 and on Sunday for brunch there was a musical group. What next!

Across the street is the Scarlett Macaw, a gallery with a variety of art work and beautiful jewelry. It opens April 1. You can even take art lessons there.
