We were on vacation in mid October with another couple. We happened on Short's by accident. We first stopped in on a Saturday night and they were featuring a bluegrass combo. The place was packed when we arrived at 8:00 PM. We had one of their specialty pizza, it was tremendous. It is a great venue for entertainment and grabbing some food and beers. They have about 20 different micro brews with a really good variety. We liked the place so much we went back three days later. I had one of their specials, a short rib sandwich with an oriental sauce. It was in my top three sandwiches of all time and I'm 59 years old. They have music of all varieties on the weekends and the food and beers are top shelf. If you're in the area you have to check this place out. See their website for more information on what music is playing.

I enjoy dark beer so I quinched my thirst with Bellaire Brown. Our B & B had their own mugs so we got a discount on the beer. We each got sandwiches but I noticed many patrons got pizzas. Because of the old ceiling it can get noisy but fun.

The beers are great. My favorite is Bellaire Brown. If you like flavored beer, they have a lot of choice. They have pub style food that goes well with the beer.

You don't come to Short's for the food, although its quite good. You come to Short's because it is unique and a mecca for craft beer aficionados. It is no wonder that they've been named the best in Michigan. Short's lovingly and creatively crafts an ever changing assortment of brews. There are always at least a dozen varieties on tap, most of them limited edition. They're open for lunch, dinner and later. So get yourself comfortable and peruse the day's menu. Then order a flight (or more) and start sampling these amazing beverages. Staff is friendly and helpful, patiently explaining the various offerings. You won't find Short's in the big city. They are homegrown, small town but extremely passionate about brewing the most excellent creative beer possible. You'll, too, be buying a growler of your personal favorite to take home. And too bad if you live out of state. Although some varieties are bottled, Short's is only available in Michigan. Do as their signature motto shirts say "Life is Short's, Drink While You're Here!"

Right in the heart of downtown Bellaire, Shorts is a great place for a bite to eat
and a cold micro brew. The chalkboard menu has many unusual offerings and all of
them are very good. The beer choices as just as varied and just as good. Highly
recommended.
