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.

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.

The mecca of the north. They have many, many (too many!) great shorts brews on draft to choose from. They had a number of bourbon barrel brews on draft when I visited which were outstanding. Not surprisingly, seems constantly crowded, but I think their system handles the crowds well. One line for beer and food. If you order food you get a number and they bring it out to you. They are very efficient generally speaking. The food is average. The beer is worth the trip from almost anywhere. One negative was the lack of air conditioning. Generally, I don’t think this is a big issue, but we visited on a very very hot weekend. A must see.

Four of us stopped in on a beer trip. This is a nice drive from Grand Rapids. It is in a delightful little town and the small town atmosphere comes through so well. One would never guess they brew such good beer because of the unassuming nature of the brewery. So comfortable here. The beer is also very good and the sandwiches we had were quite nice. I am so glad we stopped in.

Went a few times over the weekend. Atmosphere was nice and inviting, with it being bright and earthy. Service was decent and the girls were pretty friendly, but it did become quite slow at times, even when not busy. The selection was decent, and while none of the beer was great, I have a much higher opinion of Short’s now than before - most of the bottles I’ve had have been infected. Pretty cool place and I would not mind a return visit.

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.

Stopped in while on a road trip and really liked this place. Warm and inviting you a greeted by a nice wooden bar and tables. Everything needs to be ordered from the bar but no worries as I was sitting at the bar. Got a nice sampler of beers along with a pizza. Pizza was pretty good. Also ended up picking up some of their special release beers while there. Wish they had more beers on tap though.

A nice little brewery in the middle of nowhere. Great tasting brews and the food while not a big selection was pretty tasty. Everyone I ran across was very nice and helpful. Cool decorating inside. Must of changed the 4.50 for 2 beers.
