Short’s Is Hiring! Are you hardworking, self motivated and enthusiastic? If you answered yes to all of them, we want to talk to you! Short’s has career opportunities opening up at our pub in Bellaire for our Food Service Director and Pub Management positions. Past experience in hospitality, management and or food service is required. Please go to our careers page to find out more and apply. We’ll be starting interviews September 7th!
Every year for the past six years, we’ve hauled our beer, our gear and our staff to Denver, Colorado to present our wares at the Great American Beer Festival. The GABF is the largest and one of the most prestigious beer competitions in the world. Each year the response to our festival booth and our beer grows, putting Short’s Brewing Company among the most popular at the festival (over 457 breweries and over 49,000 attendees!). We want to continue to return to Denver, and we want to represent Bellaire and all of northern Michigan to the best of our ability.
The expenses associated with this trip are pretty hearty, so to help buffer the trip expenses we’re selling a limited number of Short’s Supporter Beer Licenses.
Here’s how it works: Sponsors pay $150 to cover the cost of one entry and to qualify you for $1.50 beers for one year. Your year of beer starts on September 16th, 2010.
Here’s the fine print : Your “beer license” is for your use only. One sponsor = one license and
no sharing. $1.50 beers are for regularly priced pints only. No gourmet pours, bottles, etc. If you want less than a pint, you still gotta pay the $1.50. Mug club mugs and $1.50 beers don’t mix – you should probably pick one great deal or the other. Tax does apply. This sweet deal is non-negotiable and non-refundable. No bitching and no refunds if we change hours, stop serving your favorite beer, close the brewery, start selling bud light or lock the doors so we can tour with Ween. We’re working to give our biggest supporters a great deal on awesome beer, and to help us get to the GABF to blow some minds. It’s a win win deal, so help us keep it that way. No unnecessary headaches, yeah?
Ask your pubtender for a sponsor form . Only 50 spots available! We look forward to seeing your sponsorship for this year’s Beer Fest!

As the festival season rolls along, the Short’s freight train just keeps on chuggin’. This time we found ourselves hauling our now famous boat booth across Lake Michigan to the state of Wisconsin to take part in one of the country’s finest craft beer festivals. Over 6,000 people piled into Madison Wisconsin’s Olin Turn Ville Park to sample hundreds of the nations best craft beer.
Short’s brought our usual list of heavy hitters, but 8 1/2 barrels of beer was not enough to satisfy these thirsty festival patrons, and they completely drank us out of beer in the first three and a half hours of the event!! Our beer wasn’t the only hit of the fest, as Short’s received the distinction of Grand Champion for Best Table Display, making the boat bar booth the biggest hit of the summer thus far. Trophy and empty kegs in hand, we returned back home to Michigan satisfied and pleased w/ a job well done.
Celebration and giving, festival style….
