Ate here for dinner while in the area for wine tasting. It as well worth the 45 minute wait on a Saturday night. Excellent pizza and amazing cheesy bread.

Many varieties of beer that are different but not a large menu at all. Pizza and some sandwiches. Very large but in the summer and weekends, it fills up quickly. Great service.

We had a fantastic experience at Short's! Thanks to Taylor (our server extraordinaire). He was friendly, funny, knowledgeable, polite and attentive. I'm not usually a big microbrew fan, unless their ciders, meads or lagers on top shelf. I'd say Short's won me over, big-time. I love their Pulsar Cider.

We attended a wedding rehearsal dinner at Short's Brewing Company. There were people of all ages there, including children, enjoying the wonderful food they serve. Many different varieties of beer and a few ciders to be had. Large area for outside eating as well. Very clean and the staff was friendly and very helpful.

If you like micro brews this will s the perfect place. They have great food and an incredible beer list of their own beer. So many choices. It helped getting a sampler, allowing us to try several different beers. Love this place!!!

They have expanded again this year so it's most of the block. Their beer is great and food just ok. Everyone goes for the beer which is understandable as it's good. But would love them to increase their food quality to match. Their buffalo chicken dip was great but pizza was just ok. The spinach dip wasn't good at all... More

Our car automatically stops at Short's on our way to Torch Lake. Their selection of beer is exceptional and their food is very good. This trip we ate in the bar (abbreviated menu) and the food was very good. We look forward to our next trip north
