This place gets crowed fast in the afternoon and evenings.The band Friday night, Ol'Microtones, was awesome. Large selection of beers but no wine.

The place has certainly grown over the years, now a mainstay in Bellaire that has built on their wide array of beers. Stopped for lunch and had the pastrami Mac n Cheese and grabbed a couple 6 packs to go. Retail outlets only carry a small sampling of what they make. Definitely worth a stop. Food offerings moreorless pub food,... More

Located in Bellaire, which is a nice little town. The place has grown since the first time I visited. The atmosphere, and staff are both fun, and on the creative side. The pizza was very good, with some of the best crust I had ever had. The Beer selection covered the spectrum of the beers from IPA's, Lagers, Porters, and... More

We were in the Bellaire area and decided to stop in at Short's Brewing Company (one of the only places open on a Sunday evening). It is a large place with a bar down the center and dining rooms on both sides of the bar. We sat on the side with two pool tables and two dart boards. They have... More

Add this place to your travel destination! Beer food and servers world class. So many different beers can't count them! All the food was good... now this is a micro brew so don't expect fine dining. Great atmosphere !

A VERY popular & busy place on the weekend- you are lucky to get in on sat nite. ALSO has a merchandise store next door if you want pricey t-shirts, hats etc. and retail... More

I have been to Shorts several times because of the great beer but have had to wait a long time for service each time. Always crowded but seemingly understaffed.

This is one of the worst restaurants and breweries in Northern Michigan! Many reasons...Not only was the service awful, it looked like the managers/owners( Scott and Joe) were struggling! Maybe too much growth too fast but they have overlooked their focus and goals! I've heard thru the grapevine that they treat their many hard working employees like dirt! They treat... More

We regularly visit Short's on our yearly trips to Bellaire, and it is so consistently outstanding in every way. We are in Bellaire during the "off season," so we don't have any experience with a long wait, as some others have. We find the atmosphere to be inviting, quirky, and very comfortable. We see all sorts of people enjoying themselves:... More
