In April of 2004 we opened the doors to Short’s Brewing Company in the quaint Village of Bellaire. Beer was the mission, and liberation was the movement. With a lot of elbow grease, blind ambition and a little luck, the quest to create a community pub in Northwest Lower Michigan began to take shape. The philosophy was to bring an appreciation of craft beer to the north with product education and creativity. The process of appreciation through education we call beer liberation.
Today Short’s Brewing Company continues the effort to educate and liberate consumers. We take pride in our hands on, mom and pop approach and the energy we put into the quality of our beer, food, staff, customers and facilities. We believe in the power of the smallness. We intend on remaining a smaller, state wide beer distributor and focusing our energies close to home (the SBC Michigan stimulus package). Our goal is to get to a comfortable production volume, enjoy what we do and love life in Northern Michigan.
