We have been coming since Short's opened and still love it. Food is great and the beer fabulous. I didn't even know I liked beer until Short's. If I have one complaint it is that the creative minds of Short's are always off inventing new tastes. Therefore, I haven't seen Licorice Lager on the menu in years. 😜I loved it!!

Had an early dinner at Short's while at Shanty Creek resort with my wife. Their sandwiches are superb! I had a White Pepper turkey sandwich that tasted great. Their craft beers are also magnificent. The "Huma Lumpa Licious" IPA is top drawer! They have a wide variety of craft beers (also for sake) so no beer lover should be disappointed.... More

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. Crisp, bubbly, dry, subtle flavors...like an awesome champagne. I bought a... More

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.
