This was a "mecca" stop for me, so expectations were high, and mostly met. Downtown brewpub vibe, but bright, and they’re taking up at least three formerly separate units, or so it appears. Very large place. The bar seems to straddle two of the units. Had a quesadilla, which was very good. Neighboring patrons’ food looked and smelled awesome (so if "macaroni & cheese" ended up in my aroma notes...). About a million beers on tap, of many different varieties. Quality ranges from above average to very good. A couple standouts. Street parking was easy. Moderate crowd lunchtime on a weekday. Staff were friendly and helpful, but it was a bit hard to get the bartender’s attention at times. Good selection of beer to go in the retail store a couple doors down (I think they’re moving one door closer soon). Destination brewery.

chriso  (715) London, England | July 2, 2007| Updated September 8, 2007
Fantastic place. 15 beers on tap (3 of which are "gourmet pours") plus about a dozen special release large bottles (15 to 25 bucks a bottle - ouch). The first unashamedly beer geek place for days. Really cool vibe too. Do not miss this place if you’re in the area. Only problem is that the sampler is only 5 beers so you need a fair while to do this place justice. Unfortunately we didn’t have that. If I was in the area again, I’d spend a night in Bellaire just to spend the whole evening at Shorts.

A touristy area, relaxed, and that filters into the brewpub. Exceptionally friendly service, everyone seems to acknowledge you are there, and with a smile. Many, many bottles and varieties available, easing the travel burden. Many beers, mostly one-offs, on tap and there were some very good ones.

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.

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.

Shorts is a nice, cozy brewpub located in the small town of Bellaire (which I wouldn’t call a touristy town based on my brief impressions of it). Most of the patrons were not locals but they seemed to be relative locals (ie somewhere else in Michigan). There were 20 beers on tap, including specialty and gourmet beers. Obviously, there is a wide variety of beers to choose from, although a lot of the styles offered were very similar. While most of what I had was pretty good, I didn’t find anything great which was a little disappointing. The food was good (I split the spinach & artichoke dip plus had a bowl of soup). I liked the atmosphere - it had a very cozy feel with the long bar and the seats by the windows. There also is a small stage, but it obviously wasn’t in use on a Thursday afternoon. Anyway, if you come to Shorts plan to stay awhile to try a bunch of their taps. Also they sell a limited amount of their special bottled items (1/2 of which were sold out when we were there). Definitely a great place to check out in Michigan!

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 wasn’t 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.

Next to Founders, this is the best beer bar in Michigan. Amazing array of their beers on tap and in bottles. Fast and knowledgeable service in a very artistic and hip space. Not to be missed if you’re in their quiet neck of the wood in Bellaire.

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.

Brewpub of a microbrewer in a very pretty part if the state. Nice place with a comfortable feel. Staff were very nice, order food, which is quite good, and beer at the bar. A nice taproom touch. Tried 10 of 18 beers in tap. They do seem to be going the dogfishhead route with lots of atypical beers. I avoided the oddball beers, e.g. Key lime pie. Of the 10 I tried only one missed the mark. Most were good and three including an oak barrel aged old ale were excellent. Well worth a visit.
