The flight of beers (7 or 14) were fun to try many of their microbrews. The place is quite large and even had live music on Saturday evening while we were there.

Stopped in for a late lunch before dropping our daughter at the airport. Their choice of beers are good, and we made our selections and they were delivered promptly. The food- my daughter and I checked out their menu on the way down and had...decided on one of two items to order. Upon looking at the menu at the red restaurant, it was completely different and those options were not offered. Bummer! Three of us ordered the gobbler turkey burger which we read it to say it came with a roasted red pepper and aioli. No red pepper- and only the slightest whisper of aioli which did nothing fir the dry burger- the fresh arugula on type was nice. We each opted for salad instead of the fries, tots etc. one got the vinagrette and two of us got the the lemony garlic which was delicious. The other person in our group got the Kegger and was very satisfied. All in all not terrible they just need a little more attention to detail in their food service. The server was mildly attentive but not overly so. I’m not sure we would go back, there’s so many other options.More

My cousin was in from out of town, and he is a bit of a bon vivant, so we wanted to find some place that was a little out of the ordinary for dinner and conversation. Someone at his hotel suggested the Short Fuse Brewing...Company, so that is where we went. It was conveniently down the road from the hotel. We were not sure what to expect, as the brewpub is in a converted garage or car dealership. The garage doors are a feature of the dining room. We were greeted promptly by a friendly young woman who also turned out to be our server. We asked for a table in a quieter area, as we wanted to talk, and the room is rather noisy. She seated us in the booth area, and it was a little less noisy. We were excited to try the different beers, as we are both fans of interesting, non mass market beers. My cousin had the Pilly Nelson, and I had the Low Spark, a hazy, hoppy brew. I liked it very much. It had a great bouquet. You can ask for a taster glass if you are undecided. For dinner we split two entrees, the skirt steak and the poutine mac and cheese. Both were tasty and inventive. For dessert we split the Joyful Cake, which is rather large, and intended for two. It is a seasonal special. To sum up, the food and beer were good, service was attentive and friendly, and overall it was a fun visit. I would definitely like to come back, and bring other beer fans.More

A huge selection of beers that are brewed in house, we personally enjoyed the gummy bear bear and the purple juice beer! The service was also fantastic - the guy offered us a few tasters, and all of them were good. Highly recommend, wish we...could export some back to the UK!!!More
