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.

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

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.

I try to make it up here every summer when I visit the inlaws. It has a comfortable, casual, and clean atmosphere. I always get a nice scent of sweet malt before I even enter. They always have an extensive selection of beers including many experimental or nonconvential beers. The food is good. They have a great veggie wrap. Both of my yong children approved of this place as well.

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.

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. Didn’t 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 I’m up that way, which hopefully won’t be too far into the future.

lampeno420  (11) Zeeland, Michigan | February 16, 2009
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.

Amazing place. Joe remodeled himself, it used to be an old hardware store. 16 taps of great beer, I’d move to Bellaire just to be closer to this place. The staff is amazing, they some of the friendliest people(except Kristen.) The pizza is great and all menu items looked good.

yjb  (8) Davis, California | December 24, 2007
Very great! The highlight was the clientele, who where all very nice, enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. They serve only their beers, whose quality varied from good to great, and always interesting. The food was pretty good for the brewpub style. The remote distance makes a brew only trip as stretch however, it is in the middle of a nice tourist destination. The co$t of the imperial series is intimidating, and the lack of any of these on tap makes their purchase risky... hopefully their great, because I bought a ton.

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.
