In case you were still on the fence about donning your best Halloween costume and coming out to Short’s for our annual Halloween bash, here are three more reasons to attend (other than our Ween cover band Code Brown or the chance that you could win a Mug Club membership): Funkin Punkin, Bloody Beer, and Evil Urges will all be on tap. Evil Urges is a brand new Short’s Brew that Tony describes as a strong, dark, Belgian beer. It can also be described as super tasty. We’ll see you on Saturday night!
Have you picked out your costume yet? Our annual Halloween party is set for Saturday October 29th at 8 p.m. We’ll have a costume contest (best costume wins a mug club membership for a year), Funkin Punkin on tap, and live music by Code Brown, the Ween cover band. View the full sized poster here.

We had a great time at GABF and, as many of you found out, we shipped a truckload of beer to Colorado for you to enjoy. If you are still trying to find some, here is a list of the places that got some of our beer. Feel free to update our Facebook posting to let others know if you were able to find it. We had a great time in Colorado and appreciated the chance to meet so many awesome people who appreciate good beer.
Don’t forget that the auction for our old pub furniture closes on Sunday, October 16th at noon. This is your last chance to bid on the Cadillac Couch, a dining table and chairs, or even an old sofa. We just found a few more pictures of the high-top tables, including high top #6, that are up for auction and put pictures of them in a Flickr gallery here. Note: in these photos the high tops are not shown with the same set of stools included in the auction. Good luck to all of the bidders!

as a testament to the rich brewing history. The Market will be open on Saturday so you

microbreweries and brewpubs to participate and there will be nearly 200 different beers
available to sample. The event will be open from 1:00pm to 6:00pm; Rain or Shine.
