“Great Saturday Night, but Get a Table Early”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We arrived early for pizza so there were plenty of tables available. By the time the band began to play, it was getting close to SRO. There was no cover charge,but a free will tip can for the hard working band was mentioned. The long tables of happy golfers from Shanty Creek add to the fun. As has been mentioned before, you have to wait on yourself . The pleasant wait staff seem intent on clearing dishes to the kitchen and not much else. Order your beer by the flight of five to sample the many locally made brews before settling on Bellaire Brown which is the most popular selection for good reason. It and several other choices are available for take out purchase in six packs. It is great to see a newer business in N. MI doing so well. Be ready for the college bar on game day atmosphere and you will enjoy it.

Go for the beer but don't eat.The food is just awful. They are so crowded they don't even bother serving decent food.

This brewery is wonderful! The beer is creative and tastes fabulous. The kitchen has great pairings to go with all the beer as well.

“Excellent beers with some very different choices”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Short's is your typical brewery establishment. Casual atmosphere and they make great beers. The menu is somewhat linited but what they have is really good. They make good pizza. They also have some very different beers if you like to expriment. Nicey Spicey and ControversiALE are two that have some strong spice flavors that make quite an impact. It's a very comfortable place and a great place to drink beer.
