Upcoming Springtime Events, including Anniversary Party and S2S Paddle

Spring is a busy time for birds, garage cleaners, and Short’s Brewing Company. Check out this list of some big events happening in the upcoming months.

Short’s 9th Anniversary Party – Saturday, April 27th

In 2004, our company embarked on a journey fueled by a passion for the liberation of craft beer in Michigan. Nine years later, we celebrate our continued passion for beer, music, and great food.

The Anniversary Party, held at our Bellaire brewpub, will be the world’s very first opportunity to set taste buds on the 9th Anniversary Ale and Controversius Maximus (a double ControversiALE)! Using our brand new second bar to its full potential, we will be pouring FORTY distinct (and distinctive) brews on draught as well as tapping into THREE very special firkins. A full beer list is available here.

Live music will be provided by our good friends Reggie and the After Party along with special guests The Whiskey Pickers. Be sure to plan your accommodations soon if you want to be able to sleep nearby.


Shanty to Short’s Run – Saturday, May 11th

Run for beer! May 11th marks the second annual running of the Shanty to Short’s 5K/10K! The run begins at the Lakeview Hotel at Shanty Creek and heads downhill to the Bellaire finish line just outside of the Short’s brewpub. Registration fees are $18 in advance and $24 on the day of the run. More information can be found here.


5th Annual Short’s to Short’s Paddle – Saturday, May 18th

Updated in many ways for 2013, the 5th Annual Short’s to Short’s Paddle continues to grow. With many participants already signed up, registration continues at $85/paddler through the April 30th registration deadline. Registration and more information can be found at www.shorts2shorts.com

Short’s to Short’s is a unique event in many regards, not least of which in the way that loyal Short’s fans volunteer to help on shore and by Captaining Safety Boats along the 27 mile course.
