I’ve only been to Short’s one time so far, & that was for their 10th Anniversary party, in which they blocked off the entire street in front of their brewery & put 100 beers on tap. So my opinion might be skewed. But it was far & away the best beer "event" I have been to. TONS of people everywhere (thousands) but even with all those people - the Short’s crew handled the part perfectly. Plenty of scattered stands with tons of food items, you never had to wait too long for a beer (except for maybe the first 30 minutes, but that quickly died down & things ran smoothly the rest of the time). The brewery itself was still open, but packed (as expected). Nice vibe on the inside... Even being so crowded, we managed to get two orders of (DELICIOUS) duck nachos without much trouble. The tap list is updated on the website - they always have some interesting/cool shit on tap. That’s just how Joe Short rolls. I would love to visit again during a non-party, & I’m sure it would still be a kickass time in the quaint town of Bellaire.

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.

Fantastic visit. Visited on a quiet weekday afternoon. Service was great and the taplist was full of interesting things, as one expects from Short’s. I had a fantastic meal here too. Very much worth a detour down from Mackinaw Island to visit. Check out Short’s Mart next door.

I’m pretty impressed with this place. It kinda has a weird layout and it is kinda loud, but they have an awesome tap selection, and the food is really good.

This is a fun place in the middle of nowhere. Shorts definitely does not have Michigan’s best beer, but I really admire their creativity with beer. They experiment like crazy - definitely try a sampler. The food is quite good also - definitely a plus for the place. Overall a fun, interesting place worth going out of your way for.

Made the trip for their 10th anniversary party and it was great. They blocked the whole street off with 100 taps right outside. Complete with a variety of food trucks and live entertainment. This and seeing what they can do at other events they are clearly ahead of the game in that department. The pub itself on the event was very packed as expected but was still served quickly. Got some duck nachos that were fantastic and some brewery glassware to take home which are really nice. The tap selection inside is very vast and full of seasonals and specials. I can imagine its a great time on your normal weekend visit. I would love to go back.
