Stopped in here to check out some of the local beer - was presently surprised with the creativity and the amount of different types of beer they offer. If youre a beer drinker they will have something for you. I didnt eat here - but those around me did, and the food like very good.

Great beer. Great food. Fun music! We live in the Bellaire area and Short's attracts people from across the state and remains a great tourist attraction.

Drove from Traverse City area to Bellaire mainly to visit this awesome brewery. Had lunch there on a Sunday, and the Pub food was excellent, and the beer was fantastic. My wife and I each had our own five-pour sampler, and ended up taking two growlers home of our favorites. Great service- very knowledgeable about the beers available.

Short's has a great, friendly, knowledgeable staff. I recommend trying to go early in the afternoon if you want the full Short's experience as they do get slammed just about every evening. On weekends they always have live music, usually have a Michigan based folk band. The beer is great, as long as craft brew is your thing. There are... More

I recently spent an evening at Short's Brewing Co. for dinner. Being a brew pub, I felt obligated to sample some of their finest brews, even though I'm not much of a beer drinker. Our knowledgable waitress helped choose beers for the uneducated beer palate. I ordered a "flight" of beer, (consisting of five 5 oz beers) and enjoyed all... More

When we had a conference that was scheduled at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire, hubby immediately said "Shorts"! We stopped in late in the afternoon on a Tuesday and started with a beer flight. Honestly, I couldn't choose a favorite--they were all outstanding. We munched through the "Mr. Smoker" appetizer, which included some creative nibbles including carefully sourced sausage, cheese...

We decided on Shorts and we were not disappointed. Great service from the well inform staff. Their flights of beers were amazing along with Their apps. The pizza was very good, over all I would highly recommend Shorts!

Our entire trip was focused on spending time at Short's. It did not disappoint. The beer was great, according to my husband, and so was the food. We had the most incredible pizza. It was busy, but well worth the wait.

After a day on the road taking in the colors in Michigan's great N.W., we stopped at Short's to sample some of their ales and have a light dinner before returning to our B&B. We had never been there before but heard a lot of positive stories from others who had stopped as well our hosts at the B&B. We... More

If you love beer this is one place to go. I stopped in after having dinner so I wasn't hungry but the menu looked good and the personalized size pizzas that the guys at the table next to me were eating looked very tasty. Try their beer sampler and then take a growler of your favorite to go! It also... More
