Stopped in on a Thursday night with friends. Tried a couple flights, they are changing beers constantly. Several hard ciders too. We had dinner as well; someday sandwich, buffalo chicken dip, white pepper sandwich, where'd the cheese go sandwich. All our food rocked! Staff is fun and friendly. Love this place!

Great atmosphere with good music food, people and of course beer. Tried the newest Real Ale on tap and it had a grapefruit twist to it very good! Shorts Brown still my favorite!

Short's Brewing Company is very impressive. Their beer selection is top notch They have a lot of beers to choose from and they taste magnificent. I highly recommend Ziltoidia Attaxx. It's a sour beer with hints of coffee. (Absolutely amazing). Their food menu choices are diverse. My boyfriend and I had the mushroom pizza and it was divine. The best... More

Always busy but nice to go when not. Outside seating is great if the weather cooperates. Their IPAs are worth the wait.

This was a fun place to stop for lunch. Wide open spaces so it can bit a bit loud. Has high top tables and well as large picnic style tables for groups or socializing. Food was VERY good. Has a bar if you are just there to sample the brew. It has a couple seating areas.

A great place to try a place together with friends and visit with their awesome staff! They have expanded as they're so busy. They have great food and in the summertime they now have an area you can even sit outside.

Can be a bit chaotic, but the wait staff manages to maintain control and provide good service. The food is bar/pub type and is plentiful and good. The beer is good and there is a variety of flavors. I like the flight where you can try small amounts of a variety - everyone likes to participate and offer their opinion... More

I ordered the Buckingham Green salad and a Bellaire Brown beer. Both were very good . I have come back for that salad 3 times. Our table shared the artichoke dip as well. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Our table was a bit cramped though and we had a lot of traffic by our table as the band was setting up.... More
