2017 Beer Release Schedule and Fan’s Choice Voting

We can think of many descriptors to describe just how we feel about this election cycle, but we’ll leave it at this: thirsty. Now, more than ever, America is in need of some good ol’, thirst quenching news. Which is why friends, we’ve decided to spread a little good news with the announcement of our 2017 Release Schedule!

Built with input from dedicated fans, staff, and accounts in mind, we’re stoked to say that our 2017 Release Schedule is our best yet. From a killer list of specialty brews (including state-wide bomber releases) to a revised list of seasonal beers (helloooo Prolonged Enjoyment!), we know we’ve picked our tastiest line up to date.

In fact, you can listen to our whole 2017 release schedule as sung by Braxton & Hicks (Joe Short & Seth Bernard).


Like the song says, we’re once again leaving one spot vacant for dedicated members of the Short’s-i-verse to fill using (drum roll please) the democratic process! That’s right, it’s time to get online and vote for our 2017 fan’s choice release. This year, we’ve narrowed the field by selecting a slate of candidates that exemplify the best that Short’s has to offer. We’ve got a beer for the hop heads, I Got 5 On It; an experimental brew, Mule Beer; a beer for the animal lover, Old Reliable; and a beer that our Southwest Liberator, Sean, just won’t give up on: the fabled Pineapple Pilsner.

Voting for the 2017 Fan’s Choice beer begins today, Monday, October 17th and will end at 11:59 pm on Sunday, November 6th, 2016. Each Short’s fan may vote once per day using the ballot below. The winner will be announced once the votes are tallied on Monday, November 7th.

While we can’t predict the outcome of the presidential election, we’re guaranteed one win this election season with the selection our 2017 Fan’s Choice brew. Vote now!

I Got 5 On It:690
Mule Beer:338
Old Reliable:69
Pineapple Pilsner:619

    I was just back in Michigan earlier this month and had your Mule Beer. How I would love to enjoy this beer on a warm SoCal summer day! Any chance you’ll be distributing further west anytime soon? (Pretty, pretty please!g I miss y’all like woah! SoCal needs more experimental brews other than just West Coas IPAs, and if you’re opening up that market more…yeah I thinks that’s a big of enough hint. Keep making rock’n beer! Cheers!

  6. Dave Cain says:

    I saved a six pack of wood master from the last time you bottled it, and enjoyed it while boiling sap this year (yes, the beer was that old). It was still great, but I’m looking forward to being able to get it fresh again. Thanks for taking a risk with the pecans!

  10. Jack says:

    Nicie in cans only!? Not cool!!

  11. John E. Mack says:

    Why has Publican Porter been in exile for so long?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey John,

      The simple truth is that we can only brew so many beers each year. We’ve just announced that the next release in our Private Stache series will be Bourbon Publican Porter. It will be available in a very limited quantity at the pub and Short’s Mart beginning on Black Friday.

  12. Chris says:

      Superfluid will not be released in 2017, but it will be released in our Super Hoppy Holidays variety pack this coming month!
