What a wonderful and lively place to drink and eat!
The staff are friendly and fun. The food was great and the beer was exceptional.
We will definitely go back again when we are in the area. We may even go back when we aren't planning a trip near by!

Great restaurant and pub!

Food, entertainment, staff, and some of the best craft beers around! Short's makes the trip to this quaint Northern Michigan town totally worth it! Bellaire is great, and Short's makes it even better!

Another stop on our "local beer tour." This is a very busy, loud place...just as it should be. We tried several different styles of beer and enjoyed them all. The service was excellent and the salads we had were very good. The live music that night made it perfect.

Fortunately, we arrived at the right time and found a table right away. There seems to be a theme at northern Michigan brew pubs: find your own table. As the place filled up, several different groups stopped at our table asking if we were leaving. No...I have a full beer in front of me...not leaving. After the third time it because really annoying. I also wouldn't want to have to wander around a dining room looking like a vulture to find a table. Other than that, a great night.

This place is busy! We started off here on a Friday at 2p and it was packed. Really have to keep your eye out for a table, or just cozy up next to strangers at a larger one! The weekends are packed, but if you get in early enough for lunch there are plenty of places to sit. We were also told if you get there by 530p on the weekends you shouldn't have a problem getting a seat.

We took the tour and was very informative, lasting about 45 minutes. You'll get a token at the end to use on a glass of beer, and also a souvenir glass to take home. We actually kept our token for the next day because we ended up trying a few flights -no issues with using it the second day if you plan on returning. The beer is amazing!

We only ate pizza here and it was delicious. Wish we could have ate more! They have food specials daily, and we were told that they ask staff members for pizza ideas and that's how they get on the specials menu so that's very cool!

Definitely check this place out!

An absolutely great place to visit in person if in the Shanty Creek Resort, Bellaire Michigan area. Well worth the stop!
