Short’s Brewing Co. Announces 2022 Winter Line Up

Ready for another awesome line up from Michigan’s favorite brewery? Short’s Brewing goes big with their first quarter releases, with a mix of OG bangers (DOUBLE SOFT PARADE!!!) and new innovations. 

Not only does Short’s have a sweet specialty line up coming your way, the brewery has even more good news for beer drinking good humans—Short’s plans to install a can labeller in early January. This new set up means that they’ll shift their specialty line up to cans, good news for folks outside of Michigan who will see more of Short’s canned six packs on store shelves near them in the coming months.

“Between new equipment and a delicious specialty lineup, it’s going to be a pretty fantastic 2022 for our company. The added can labeller will allow our team to keep innovating, offer more specialty products to our neighboring states, and sneak some fun and really small batch brews into our schedule. Keep your eyes peeled for release dates on our social pages and website!” Stated Pauline Knighton-Prueter, Sales Director for the brewery.

Cat Grass finishes pleasantly dry and bitter, leaving you ready for that next sip…or gulp…we’re not here to judge. We’ll leave the judging to the cats.

Good Humans – Dry Hopped Double Brown – 8.3% ABV, 49 IBU
6 pack bottles, draft
t’s not very often a beer gets made to specifically showcase malts, but we have always liked being a little different. Good Humans is a very big and bold Brown Ale that is also dry-hopped with Simcoe and Golding hops. This beer is full of flavor and feelings including caramel, toffee, mild hop bitterness, and the awareness that we are all in this together. Drink a Good Humans and be a good human.
