What right does a non-beer drinker have to do a review about Short's? Great question! My son, who fancies himself quite the beer connoisseur and expert said this was a "must visit" stop on our golf vacation. He had a flight of 5 different brews...More

Our family of 5 including 3 kids under 10 really enjoyed Shorts. I have been to Shorts many times, and the addition is excellent and the food was great. During the summer the open air seating is the best. Almost all the beers are great!

Soft Parade and the Brain beer that tastes like a gin/tonic were right up our wheelhouse! the waiter took the time to help some non beer drinkers find just what we'd like. PLUS the artichoke dip was DELICIOUS!

Went out of the way to visit Shorts Brewery in Bellaire, MI. It was a Saturday and the place was busy. Walked in, found a seat at the bar, got run off by the bartender. Apparently we were invading his "growler space". So we left....More
