Mark your calendar for Anni Party 15 – Saturday, April 27th, 2019

It’s that time of year again: Short’s Brewing Company is proud to celebrate another year of loving where we live and what we do with our 14th Anni Party! If you know anything at all about Short’s, you know that we love nothing more than to spread the love, so why would this year be any different? To celebrate this momentous occasion, on April 28th from 4pm – 9pm we will be transforming the streets of Bellaire into an entire block of local love and awesomeness with Short’s brews, Starcut Ciders, live music, and scrumptious local foods. Once again we will be donating revenue from the Anni Party 14 celebration to the Village of Bellaire Downtown Development Authority to assist with improvements and beautification within The Village of Bellaire. We look forward to having your help spreading 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, start planning your visit to celebrate where we live and what we love! April 28th is just around the corner!
