Went for dinner with family on a Saturday night. We had a short wait for a table, but staff was on top of it and we were seated promptly once a table opened up. We sampled the flights and discovered several beers that were quite delicious. Our food orders were delivered hot and in a timely manner. Our waiter was... More

There is live music... More

Truly a place to have fun & enjoy great beer. The town of Bellaire should be very happy that this restaurant & pub have set up shop here. The beer selection is fabulous, the menu is ultra modern. The veggie flatbread sandwich was awesome. The hamburger choices are very nice. Atmosphere is fun, relaxed, great friendly servers. Will go back... More

Havn't been through Bellaire in yrs. A slow blow through town at one time. Shorts has moved in and it seems to be a driving force. Lots of people eating, strolling though, visiting businesses... and Shorts is the happenin thing bringing people in. A great selection of beers. Good food and a good vibe. I will be traveling though Bellaire... More

Super duper busy. We had to share a table with another family. I got the Pandemonium Pale Ale and my husband got the Oblivion. Both were good. Sandwiches were awesome too!

We made our 3rd visit to Shorts Brewing Co. in Bellaire, Michigan at the end of July, 2014. It was busy, but the tables are large and people are very friendly, accepting requests to sit at the unclaimed chairs at their tables. The atmosphere is festive yet relaxed; people are happy and satisfied. It is a family friendly place, and... More

Shorts selection of beer is quite impressive. The variety and quality makes this place unique. The shared plates make for good beer food but they also have good meals too, especially the pizza and salads. It can get a little loud because in the summer they are packed. They have a stage too so most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays there... More

Stopped in for lunch and had a great time. Start with a flight to try new brews. The shared plates were the perfect accompaniment to some great tasting beer.

You really can't say enough great things about Short's. Michigan beer lovers and American craft brew drinkers can make a weekend off a trip to their brewery (further south), and a 30 minute drive north to the pub here in Bellaire. Rent a place on Torch Lake for the weekend and enjoy some of the best brews Michigan has to... More

Love the beer, and the food isn't bad either. Great spot, worth the trip! This is a fun, friendly up north place with good beer, good food, and a great ambiance. We love it!
