“Cool Space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Very cool atmosphere, fitting of that for the lake. Known especially for their beers brewed on site. Very busy and energetic place, always live entertainment. Food is pretty good, not necessarily a great place for younger kids, it is more of a bar.

“Beer beyond measure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you have ever had Short's Beer you know how good it is bottled, now think about it fresh. The atmosphere is just what you would expect, funky and small with a tiny stage for live music but great food to go along with great beer at a reasonable price.

“Great Ale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Shorts goes from strength to strength. Amazing selection of beers. My personal favorite is Magician. My wife votes for the Bellaire Brown. Great pizzas too.
Anytime you are in Northern Michigan, anywhere near Bellaire you need to checks out Shorts!

“Really creative and fun microbrewery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Where else could you try honey/sunflower beer? Or chocolate wheat beer? Short's has a funky industrial feel and live music often.
