Made the trip for their 10th anniversary party and it was great. They blocked the whole street off with 100 taps right outside. Complete with a variety of food trucks and live entertainment. This and seeing what they can do at other events they are clearly ahead of the game in that department. The pub itself on the event was very packed as expected but was still served quickly. Got some duck nachos that were fantastic and some brewery glassware to take home which are really nice. The tap selection inside is very vast and full of seasonals and specials. I can imagine its a great time on your normal weekend visit. I would love to go back.

Awesome atmosphere, always busy. 20 taps with rotating beers. Came back the next day and half of the beers had changed. Food is average. If you can find a place to sit, this place is great!

Iíve only been to Shortís one time so far, & that was for their 10th Anniversary party, in which they blocked off the entire street in front of their brewery & put 100 beers on tap. So my opinion might be skewed. But it was far & away the best beer "event" I have been to. TONS of people everywhere (thousands) but even with all those people - the Shortís crew handled the part perfectly. Plenty of scattered stands with tons of food items, you never had to wait too long for a beer (except for maybe the first 30 minutes, but that quickly died down & things ran smoothly the rest of the time). The brewery itself was still open, but packed (as expected). Nice vibe on the inside... Even being so crowded, we managed to get two orders of (DELICIOUS) duck nachos without much trouble. The tap list is updated on the website - they always have some interesting/cool shit on tap. Thatís just how Joe Short rolls. I would love to visit again during a non-party, & Iím sure it would still be a kickass time in the quaint town of Bellaire.

great beer. nice atmosphere, wide open spaces, when it gets busy it gets loud and a little chaotic, still one of my favorite places to be

The selection is huge and they have so many good beers. Located in Belaire, its hard for me to get up there but Iím really glad I made the trip. The food is really good and everyone was really friendly.

Cool place and awesome beer, and fun atmosphere. The only downside is how busy the place always is. Chocolate Wheat Iis good, hazy days awesome and smokey flavor. Servers nice and lots of choices.

Michigan never ceases to amaze. In this refurbished hardware store in a little northern MI village is a great brewpub. Wonderful chilled-out vibe, friendly service. Splended selection of 20 beers on tap, additional bottles to be found. Good pub food. Great prices. A great place and well worth the drive over.

Iíve been trying to stop here for years and finally made it while picking up a keg for a wedding. Excellent brewpub. Spacious, relaxed space, 20 of their beers on tap, a bunch of bottle, and great sandwiches. I had the roast beef sandwich with a sweet tomato and balsamic vinegar paste, and a lot of beer.

In a quiet little Michigan village sits one of the most incredible brewpubs in the country. I was expecting a nice place but really exceeded my expectations. A selection of 20 taps pretty much guarantees you will find something you like and many of them sessionable. Incredibly friendly service. I was there at lunch time so wasnít too crowded - seemed to be extremely popular among the retired crowd in the area but also family friendly and a selection of locally made soft drinks. Food was very good. Love this part of Michigan anyway, but this is a jewel in the crown.
