Happy (Super Hoppy) Holiday to You

We’re wishing a happy (and super hoppy) holiday season to you and yours with the hoppiest variety pack we’ve ever dared to brew! Chok-full of holiday cheer, our Super Hoppy Holidays pack is comprised of everyone’s favorite double and triple IPAs; Superfluid, Stache Bender, Aww Jeah, and Batch 5000 (3, 12oz bottles of each brew).

Superfluid (9.1% ABV – 91 IBU) is an American Double India Pale Ale that explodes with a perfume of resiny hop aromas! A simple malt bill allows the hops to shine with flavors of coconut, pineapple, and tropical fruit. The perfect bitterness resonates across the palate, complementing the awesome hop intensity within.

Stache Bender (10.3% ABV – 77 IBU) is a bright orange Double American India Pale Ale with explosive aromas of tangerine, pineapple, and grapefruit. The taste is a celebration of citrus hop flavors and fruit zest. Citrus flavors fuse with a slight malty sweetness before a building bitterness resonates into a dry and warming finish.

Aww Jeah (10.4% ABV – 95 IBU) is a Double American India Pale Ale with a dark orange hue and big hop aromas. Sweet malt collides with an array of hop flavors ranging from sticky fruit to pine in this brew. Aww Jeah shifts towards a finish that is sharp and bitter.

Batch 5000 (14.6% ABV – 75 IBU) is a big-bodied, Triple American India Pale Ale with a sizable palate coating sweetness. Delicious flavors and aromas of pineapple and orange are complimented by an awesome piney hop bitterness that leads into a warming finish.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, our Super Hoppy Holidays variety pack will hit store shelves in early November. Keep an eye on our social media channels for an exact release date. Cheers and happy (super hoppy) holiday to you!

    Will this variety pack be making its way to Illinois?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Eric,
      Super Hoppy Holidays will be sold at Illinois Meijer stores in very limited quantities. Your best bet will still be a trip to the mitten!

  2. Marc G. Fulgencio says:

    Can this be ordered ahead of time or do we have to wait til it hits the stores?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Marc,

      Super Hoppy Holidays can not be ordered ahead of time, but should be available at many locations.

  3. Michael Wonn says:

    Oh it’s a cardboard case of holiday hoppy awesomeness!

  4. Fred says:

    Part of me thinks drinking Aww Jea outside of Bellaire is sacrilegious. The rest of me is going to tell that part of me to shut the hell up starting in early November

  5. Ben says:

    Where will I be able to find this in the greater Lansing area?

    Any hitting Indiana? If not, any idea when it might hit Mega Bev in Kzoo?

        Michigan City Meijer’s had 3 left as of 2:00 pm 11/18/2016
        they had 6 but someone grabbed a few.

  9. Joey says:

    Will these be available at Meijer and Busches in Metro Detroit?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Sure are!

      1. Griff Potter says:

        When at Detroit area Meijers? I checked the Sterling Heights. All they had was pack with Mule Beer and Kolsch 45. Bought it, but need some hops too!

        1. Short's Brewing Company says:

          All the variety packs have been distributed at this time. This particular pack is selling very fast and might require some searching in order to find!

  10. Ashley says:

    Where can I find one of these for my husband near Milford, Michigan?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Ashley, your best bet will be to check at your local Meijer or Spartan stores.

  11. Paige says:

    Holiday Market sold out already – where else can I find it in the Detroit/Royal Oak area? 🙂

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Paige, be sure to check your local Meijer and Busch’s locations for our Super Hoppy Holidays variety pack.

  12. Mike says:

    Do you know which stores in Monroe County will have this? I found one that got 2 12 packs and they are gone.

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Mike,

      Check for Super Hoppy Holidays at the Monroe Meijer.

  13. Edward says:

    I’m living in escanaba, mi. Please help me find this awesome pack! I believe in the hop ferry!

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Edward,

      Our area Liberator suggests checking with Elmer’s County Market in Escanaba or Jack’s Fresh Market in Menominee.

  14. Luke says:

    I am surrounded by Meijers in Illinois, but I am also headed to Southwest MI in a few days. Any spots I should check to pick up a pack?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Meijer locations in either state is a great bet!

      1. Luke says:

        I tried posting something but it looks like it did not go through. I have visited my local-ish 3 Meijers here in IL but it seems like they never got this pack. Is it possible they have not been put out yet? Any help would be appreciated because all three locations customer service were unaware of anything about it.

        1. Short's Brewing Company says:

          Hey Luke,

          IL Meijer stores should have already received their shipments of our Super Hoppy Holidays pack. These packs were distributed in limited quantities, so it’s possible that they sold out rather quickly. Binny’s will be releasing our Super Hoppy Holidays pack sometime in the next week or so.

  15. christian m Boyer says:

    Where can I get this? I love in Toledo, OH, but work in Ann Arbor. The Liquor Cabinet in Lambertville Michigan has already sold out. Every other normal store I go to says that they have not received any shipment of it yet.

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Shipments to Ohio are being delivered this week. Check your local Toledo area Meijer this evening and you might just be in luck!

      1. christian m Boyer says:

        Thanks!

  16. nate says:

    Will these be at Family Fare? Easily the most insane sampler ever built!

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      What area of the state are you looking in, Nate?

      1. Glenn says:

        We have 8 left at the Family Fare in Dowagiac.

  17. Jeffrey Stewart says:

    I live in Livonia Michigan couldn’t find it at Busch’s or Mejier.

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      This particular variety pack has sold very quickly and might require some searching in order to find.

  18. Dalton says:

    Will they be available at local Kroger’s as well? I’m in southern Wayne County.

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      It’s unlikely that you’ll find Super Hoppy Holidays at Kroger. Be sure to check your local Meijer, Busch’s, and Spartan stores.

  19. Michael says:

    Grand Haven, lakeshore area?? Awwwwww Jeah..
    Had at the big anni party, would love to have again!

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      These packs have been selling fast, but checking at your local Meijer or D&W might still land you a taste of Super Hoppy Holidays!

  20. Paully says:

    The 5000 IPA is epic! Do you sell it in 4 pack or is it just available in this great sampler?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Paully,

      At this time, Batch 5000 is only available in the Super Hoppy Holidays variety pack.

  21. Pat says:

    Will Cassanova in Hudson (WI) be getting this?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Sorry Pat, this variety pack didn’t make the trip across the lake!

  22. chadbrochill says:

    What is the suggested retail price on this puppy?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      $26.00 – $28.00, but due to demand you may see it on store shelves at a higher price point.

  23. james says:

    can you age these beers?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey James,

      We suggest you enjoy the beers in our Super Hoppy Holidays pack fresh this season.

  24. Roger says:

    Will this be sold at Costco or Meijer in Kalamzoo?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      The Meijer in Kalamazoo may still have a pack in stock. Meijers in Grand Rapids also may have some of these packs still in stock. We suggest you call ahead before heading out!

  25. Bob Swanson says:

    We live in Lansing, Mi. area, where can we find Hoppy Holidays pack?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Bob, Unfortunately it looks like our Super Hoppy Holidays Variety Pack is sold out throughout much of the state. If your son is a fan of IPA’s, consider picking up a six-pack of The Liberator. It’s heading to store shelves soon!

    2. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Bob,

      We just got word that there are just a handful of these variety packs in stock at the Okemos Meijer. If you’re still looking, that’s probably your best bet!

  26. Doug Dagostino says:

    The 4 stores I frequent in the Troy area would not sell the 12 packs together. They either split up the 12 packs to sell individual bottles or made 4 packs (1 of each) to sell. Is there any way in the future a long time loyal customer (I started on Shorts in the spring of 2005 in your original Bellaire store) can get at least one 12 pack to buy? Just bought a case of Vintage Premium at shorts mart last week; great light American brew.

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Doug,

      We’re so sorry to hear this. Unfortunately we can’t control how individual retailers choose to sell our product. Your best bet for finding in tact variety packs is to check your local Meijer store or to make a trip to Short’s Mart in Bellaire. If you’re looking for another super hoppy brew this holiday season, keep an eye out for The Liberator. It should be heading to a store near you this week! Thank you for your continued support!

  27. Amy says:

    Are there going to be more of these restocked in Lansing area Meijer’s before Christmas? The one I was lucky enough to get was amazing!!!

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Amy,

      To our knowledge, our Super Hoppy Holidays variety pack is completely sold out and we will not be making more or restocking. If you’re looking for a hoppy fix, keep your eyes out for sixers of The Liberator. It’s slated to hit store shelves the week of December 19th!

      1. Short's Brewing Company says:

        Hey Amy,

        We just received word that we have some Super Hoppy Holidays variety packs still available. Where are you located?

  28. Cody Paehlig says:

    Where can I find the Hoppy Holiday pack?? We have looked everywhere and will go a ways to get it! Love Shorts!!

  29. Cheri says:

    Interested in the Super Hoppy Holidays. Anyone you know of still selling any in the Detroit area…specifically in the western suburbs.

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Hey Cheri,

      You’re best bet is to call and check with your local Meijer or independent beer retailer. We’ve heard reports that there are some in the field, but they are increasingly hard to find. If you’re looking for a hoppy brew, be sure to try The Liberator. It’s on store shelves now!

  30. Chris says:

    I need to find this asap it’s vanished off shelves at the one place I can find it. I’m not sure what retailers are stocking it. Any ideas?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

  31. Kevin says:

    I’m located in Beverly Hills of metro detroit, I was wondering if there were any available around my area?

  32. Brent says:

    Meijer on Central Avenue in Toledo, OH still had a few as of tonight.

  33. Jacob Durso says:

    Absolutely amazing variety pack. I bought the last two at the Cedar Springs, MI store. Batch 5000 is hands down the best Triple IPA I have ever consumed. We need 4 packs of this amazing beer. All the others are fantastic but the Batch 5000 is worth going Black Friday wild over…

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Thanks, Jacob! We’re so glad to hear you dig Batch 5000 as much as we do. Cheers!

  34. Curt says:

    Any chance this holiday pack will be released in 2017? We sure could use this in the Northville area!

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Stay tuned for information about our specialty holiday releases!
