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!

Shorts is awesome! Tons of unique beers on tap, good food, and fun things to look at. The only complaint...why no wait staff? It makes things pretty annoying when you have to place your order (beer and food) at the window, wait for it, and walk it back yourself. When it gets crowded the line gets long. Oh well, still one of the best brewpubs in Michigan!

Very nice brewery in a renovated old building which lends a nostalgic feel. The beer here is always outstanding, with 16 - 20 unique taps typically available. Shortís really pushes the envelope on creativity - and does it well. You can always count on being able to try something youíve never heard of - or even thought of. The Huma Lupa Licious, Bludgeon Yer Eye, Imperial Spruce India Pilsner, Captain Fantasy, Smoreís Stout, Mystery Stout, are some of my favorite brews anywhere, and I always look forward to their anniversary beer. Iíve always had great service here, and the bartenders, though generally quite busy, are very friendly and fairly well-versed in the beer. The pub has a tiny little closet of a kitchen off the end of the bar, but they prepare surprisingly good food in it. This place is a must-visit every time I get to northern Michigan.
