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.

Stopped in on the honeymoon brew tour. Definitely worth the 45+ min. drive from TC. Bellaire is a cute little town, and Shorts is a cute little brew pub, with nice worn brick and an old-timey kind of feel. Plenty of room in there, but on our particular visit everyone was crammed into the close side near the bar, which is cool. Nice menu selections. Didnít try the pizzas but they sound good. They have at least 20 taps and a wide selection of bottles, which I took a bunch to go. Very friendly and helpful staff and decent prices. Will definitely go back next time Iím up that way, which hopefully wonít be too far into the future.

I finally made it here this summer for the first time, and have now visited a total of five times. Good ambiance, great selection, and always an interesting crowd. A couple recent visits were rewarded by at least eight beers that were not on tap in July, a testament to the diverse, ever-rotating tap offerings. The food selection is somewhat limited, and care must be taken to avoid palate-killing ingredients. The brewpub gets quite busy, and the bar seems to be the place to be for quick service. One of the standout breweries in Michigan, and the brewpub does not disappoint.

This place was outstanding. The selection was very nice with quite a variety of styles. I got an appetizer, a sandwich, and a flyte of beers and was thoroughly impressed by them all. The food was great, the beers were great, and the atmosphere was very nice. One of my favorite breweries and one of my favorite taprooms.

Easy to find location with street parking. Middle of the afternoon on saturday and the place was very busy. Got a seat at the bar direct in front of chalk board with beer. list. Freindly service and good knowledge of beers. Started with tap list and server (Amy) allowed me to do three samples at a time. I had nine new beers for me and half where not on page. No food. Short trip from Traverse City, but long trip from Cincy. I will return when within 60 miles.

located in the small town of bellaire. the process of placing an order is somewhat frustrating. food was pretty good, but the beers are fantastic. the creativity is some of the best in the whole beer industry.

A great stop with a ton of shorts beer on tap. Bottles are plentyful as well. Food is nothing special, but service is great and Joe the brewer is often around to answer questions.

Went out of our way to visit while in the area last spring and was not disappointed. Didnít have a meal, but enjoyed a fresh, great-tasting Anniversary Ale!
