We went for lunch and we were very impressed. The food was excellent. Shorts offers an interesting menu and a vast selection of beers. We went with our two little ones (1 and 3) and the service was friendly and accommodating. I was nervous to take the little ones to a brewery type restaurant but, it was no problem at all. We went twice in one weekend!

Fun brewery with a ton of beers to explore!
I ordered the special of the day Duck Nachos and was pleasantly surprised. The duck was very tasty and my kids kept bugging me for more of my duck.
We ordered he Honey Badger and Huma Lupa Licious beer. The honey badger was too dark for me but my husband says the Huma Lupa Licious is his new favorite beer - over his usual Bell's beer.

Ok choices for the kids - pizza is always a good option.

We were just there for the 10th anniversary party, and weren't even able to get in. We were there early for presale tokens and beer, showed up about quarter to noon and the line was already a block long. We stood freezing for a total of 2 hours, and were happy to, because 15 minutes after we got in line we were told when we got to the front we would get "super secret willy wonka passes". These would get us in the party at 3pm without waiting in another line. But when we got to the front of the line we heard rumors that there were no more super secret passes... We asked and were told they had run out of the passes "hours ago". We were stuck and realized once we purchased our tokens and beer we would have to leave, to put away the beer, and then would have to go to the back of the line... Which was twice as long as it was when we started! Freaking ridiculous! So we didn't buy presale tokens, we bought our anniversary ale and left.. Later that evening at the Lakeview we ran into other people who had a similar experience, but they had bought tokens and then weren't able to get into the party after standing in line again. Poor planning. Some of Short's die hard fans were left waiting in the cold with useless tokens, that were $5 bucks a pop.

Short's is a great place to eat. They brew the best beer in the state, and the food is great too. As a bonus they have entertainment several nights a week.

Great locally brewed beers. Lots of options for the beer expert, but i liked the brown beer best. Food was a step above your usual beer pub grub. Not a huge menu but more than enough choice. The mushroom soup was right up there.
