Tried to update my rating and it completely disappeared. So here’s the new one. I previously had them with a total score of 100, but they have become a victim of their own success. Now that they have been "discovered" it is increasingly difficult to get a seat. Recently went down on a Friday night and was told it was a 1 1/2 hour wait for a table. Granted it was Friday night, but in Bellaire? In January? They are expanding their seating, which may help in the dead of winter, but summertime is still going to be next to impossible. I am happy for them and their success, but I miss being able to go to my hometown pub without it being a marathon ordeal. But they are doing the best that they can under the circumstances. Every brewpub wishes they had such problems!

This is a fun place in the middle of nowhere. Shorts definitely does not have Michigan’s best beer, but I really admire their creativity with beer. They experiment like crazy - definitely try a sampler. The food is quite good also - definitely a plus for the place. Overall a fun, interesting place worth going out of your way for.

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!

I’ve only been to Short’s 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 Short’s 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. That’s just how Joe Short rolls. I would love to visit again during a non-party, & I’m sure it would still be a kickass time in the quaint town of Bellaire.

The selection is huge and they have so many good beers. Located in Belaire, its hard for me to get up there but I’m 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.
