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

This was my second trip to Short's, my husbands first. He's the beer drinker, I'm the foodie. He tried 8 different beers(a flight and a few samples, not 8 full beers) and really didn't have any he didn't like. His favorites were the Kolsch 45 and Lil Wheezy. We had the Set it on Fire appetizer (buffalo chicken dip) and... More

So many great brews to choose from. If you like to discover new beers then this is the place for you! The food is pretty good as well! Although my salad was a little small :( I can forgive that because of how great everything else was.

Went to Bellaire for dinner at Shorts with friends and had a great pizza and a few drafts. Beer was excellent and the pizza was delicious. Put Shorts on your to do list. Jim and Linda Munro Korner Kottage Bed & Breakfast Suttons Bay, MI

Not enough seating for short people! All tall stools, mostly. Lot of beers to choose from (I had the sampler, and the Belgian beer has WAY too much spice). Soup was good, bread good to dip in it. Limited menu, but they do it well. Service a little spotty.

For those who love beer and those who don't, Shorts Brewery has the best of both worlds. The award winning selection of beers can be overwhelming, but a word of advice, 2 orders of 5 samplers is enough to satisfy you craft beer craving. And not to discredit their menu. WOW! The food was great. A must try is the... More

Don't expect a fancy dining area but I was delighted with their food, despite the fact that they are known for their micro-brews. Well worth the price!

You are likely to join others at Shorts as you are seated at long tables near the bar. At the lower level is the band with nightly entertainment and smaller tables. The beer selection is phenomenal. The menu is varied, and service is good. Go early on weekends or holidays, as there is a line!! Yes. It's that good.
