Short's Anni Party 13


April 29th, 2017 

4:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Downtown Bellaire, Michigan

On April 29th, 2017 we’ll be hosting Short’s Anni Party 13irteen. We’re closing the street in front of the pub in downtown Bellaire to celebrate with 30 Short’s brews and Starcut Ciders, local food, two specialty Private Stache bottle releases (Terr Bear, a barrel aged sour Wheat Ale fermented with Northern Michigan raspberries and Bourbon Wizard, a barrel aged Barleywine), and performances by Laith Al-Saadi, May Erlewine & The Motivations, and our first ever Battle of the Bands winner. Once again we are sharing the love and 50% of the profits from Short’s Anni Party 13irteen with the Village of Bellaire Downtown Development Authority to assist with village improvements and beautification. We can’t wait for your help spread the love of good beer (and cider!) made by people who care in Northern Michigan for many years to come. So don’t just sit there, care, care, CARE! April 29th is just over the rainbow!
