“Came back again”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We were here back in 2006. We were staying right up the road at the Grand Victorian and the owner at the time suggested Short"s, and so we are back. The place has become soooo.... popular and seems to be doing well for itself. The food is great and so is the beer. We stopped twice before we headed back to Wisconsin. We will come back again.

“My favorite brewery”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I have been to Short's a handful of times over the past few years and they never disappoint. They always have 20 of their beers on tap, and most of them are brewed at the brewpub in Bellaire and not bottled or distributed (all of their other beers that are distributed are brewed at a production facility in Elk Rapids). Most of the beers are created with an "outside the box" thinking and not brewed to the specifications of a particular style. Also, their food is eccentric but very, very good. If you are coming from out of town, do yourself a favor and stay overnight in Bellaire. We have stayed at both the Bellaire Inn and All Seasons Motel because they are walking distance from the brewery.

“Terrific Brews & Food ”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped here after golf. Husband said the Luma Lupa Liscious a specialty IPA was the best he'd had. The wings, a special that night and not always on the menu, were wonderful. They were juicy and meaty with a delicious sauce. If they're on the menu, they are not to be missed.

A couple of nights later we again stopped in after a round of golf and this time Al had Prolonged Enjoyment another IPA which he thoroughly enjoyed. With no wings on the menu, a cup of jambalaya and pizza were the choice for us. Both had bright flavors, obviously made with fresh tomatoes and other ingredients.

The atmosphere is casual and fun with live music 3 or 4 nights a week.

“Great Food Super Great Beers”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

If you are a fan of craft beer and super variety while eating great food and enjoying fantastic service, you will like Short's! The ruebin sandwich was fantastic as was pulled pork. Everyone there seemed to enjoy as much as we did. If you like Bell's Brewery products you will definitely like Short's as well!!
