Short’s Fest 2014

08/02/2014 4 to 10 pm

Don’t miss the 5th Annual Short’s Fest held at our production facility in Elk Rapids, MI during the Harbor Days celebration. We’ll have 20 fearlessly creative beers on tap at two separate stations, Terri’s Pretzel Cart, and our hot dog stand will be cranking out the dogs! There will also be local food vendors Cordwood Barbecue and Happy’s Taco Shop on hand to accompany your beer of choice. Celebration starts at 4:00 pm with curfew at 10:00 pm to give everyone time to watch the fireworks.

Featuring live music from Deer Tick with special guest Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers.

Tickets are only $8.
