2nd Annual Short’s Fest – August 6th from 6 p.m. to midnight at our Elk Rapids Production Brewery

Join us during Harbor Days in Elk Rapids for the 2nd Annual Short’s Fest. We created this event last year and it was a huge success… so this year we decided to make it even better. Features include: free admission – all ages welcome; 20 Short’s Brews on tap, include 3 real ales; natural, alcohol-free soda brewed by Joe Short; food from the Blue Pelican; unveiling of the S.S. Honey Badger (Short’s new beer truck!); plus live music by Valentiger from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Short’s Fest will also be a great place to watch the Harbor Days Fireworks! Be sure to embrace the “Short’s” theme by wearing your favorite cargo shorts or cut-offs! To view a map of the festivities, click here.

We will continue to post details about these events and other upcoming festivals, including Great Taste of the Midwest (Madison WI, August 13), Suds on the Shore (Ludington, August 20th), and the 3rd Annual Traverse City Microbrew and Music Festival (August 26/27). We look forward to seeing you there!
