Come Wish Joe A Happy 34th Birthday at Hopcat

We’re celebrating Joe’s birthday this Thursday night at Hopcat in Grand Rapids. According to tradition, we’re putting the same amount of Short’s Brews on tap as Joe’s age. This year’s lineup is especially diverse, including a wide-range of our pub exclusive and historical brews. Plus, seasonal favorites like the Liberator. Joe, along with a number of other Short’s employees, will be on hand. We look forward to seeing you there!
