Great little brewery that smelled of malt and grains as soon as you enter. Had 2 of their beers on tap and a good price. The waitresses were all very friendly and knowledgeable of everything there. Had a sandwich PACKED with turkey which was great, but a little pricey. Looks like a lot of fun at night on the dance side. Tons of old beer cans/micro bottles lined the back of the room. Worth the drive if you can stay for a while, or have someone drive you home.

16 beers on tap. Located in down town Bellaire in an old hardware shop. There are two main rooms, one with the taps and another with a stage. I’ve been there a few times when they had local bands. Beers are good. Great place to visit.

Nice place with some character, with a small town feel. The pizza seemed like a frozen pizza they just put into the oven and served. The beer was great and decently priced. Friendly and nice crowd, will try to make it there again sometime. The food has changed a lot since the last time I was there, the pizza is many times better, lots of tap options, would recommend a stop here if you are in Northern Michigan.

I’ve been to Short’s quite a bit over the last 4 plus years they’ve been open. I usually stop in here at least once every time I’m up north at my mom’s lake cottage on Intermediate Lake. Ambiance: This is located in an old hardware store in downtown Bellaire. The interior is very cool. It kind of reminds me of Bell’s Eccentric café with the unique art and set-up. Service: The service here is usually very good. All the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the food and beers. They are always giving non-locals help picking out something good. . Selection: They have by far the best selection I’ve seen at a brewpub, period. It’s actually quite amazing that a small brewpub in northern MI can offer so many tasty, unique, and damn good beers at one time. First they offer the 13 Imperial Beers for either takeout or to enjoy at the pub. They also offered the 3 Anniversary IPA’s . Too bad they’re out of the grapefruit. For the beers on tap, there are usually about 10 – 15 regular beers ($4.50 for 2

Solid good beer in a brew pub that captures the small town feel of this great little up north town. Beer is good but no real big stouts. Did not eat food selection limited.

Cozy little brewpub way up in northern Michigan. Great selection of beers on tap, sixteen total when we visited, along with a ton of other beers available in bottles (if at a really high price for the imperial series). The vegetarian food is a bit limited, with the cheese / vegetable sandwich being almost completely unhealthy (tons of gooey cheese and oily vegetables), but tasty nonetheless. Solid, excellent selection of beers, with good service and lots of great bottles. That said, those familiar with the imperial series of beer in bottles might be a touch disappointed by the selection on tap, and big beers seem to be where this brewery shines. Altogether, definitely a great stop in northern Michigan, and (let’s be honest with ourselves) there’s really nothing else around.

Took the short trip over to Short’s during a recent trip to mid-Michigan. The drive was more than worth it. Bellaire is a small lake town brimming with young people meandering around the small downtown. The brewery sits in the small block and was practically full when we visited. The bar is modern and comfortable, a nice mix of tunes playing in the background. Over a dozen taps offered the brewery’s beers. We tried The Magician, Huma Lupa, Bellaire Brown, Chocolate Wheat, Soft Parade and Pandemonium Pale. All were above average. We also grabbed a case full of 750ml Imperial beers before heading out the door. Great place to spend a few hours (or a long night if you have a place to stay). From the looks of it, they also have music every Thurs-Sat during the summer. We tried a little bit of food, but beer was definitely our focus. If you are thinking about making the trip, it is well worth your time.

This place fuckin’ rocks! One of my favortie brewpub stylings. Eclectic, but very tasteful decor and design. Awesome big chalkboard of huge brewpub variety. Lots of beers to ogle. The food is simple, but well done, delicious and affordable. The waitress is very nice accommodating to my beer-geek needs. I had a fantastic flight of beer. I’d love to stick around for some music and a few pints of the Huma-luma. A must stop in Northern Michigan.

Bellaire is a surprisingly small town in a recreational tourist area. The brewery itself is in a modest brick building it does not suggest anything special. However, once you get inside, you glance at their chalkboard and line up of 750’s on the bar and you know you are in a special place. The staff is friend and willing to tell you about what is happening. You can get any number of styles on tap and I admit I probably did not examine the beers as closely as I should have. The tap line up is solid and rival the best few brewpubs I have visited, both in quality and variety. An interesting and unique experience. I picked up some botteld sutff but had to restrain myself as it would be easy to spend a lot. Anyone coming anywhere near this place should make the trip. Maybe it’s not a good critique of the food, but I had some nice soup while drinking.

Very cool old brick building with an airy, open interior reminiscent of The Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo. I visited on a Saturday afternoon. The beer was excellent. They had 16 on tap the day I visited and offered 16 completely different bottled beers. Their beers are offered in different sizes, including 5 oz tasters for $1 per sample. The service was great. John, one of the guys who works there, was friendly and showed me around the brew house briefly. The food was decent and the music was even good (they played some Decemberists while I was there). The drive, although long, was scenic and well worth the effort.
