Private Stache is our pub-only bottled beer series. Launched in the spring of 2015, this series is comprised of beers that are experimental, barrel aged, sour, or otherwise exceedingly rare. Private Stache beers are only available for purchase at our pub in Bellaire.


Private Stache is a concept developed by Short’s Head Brewer, Tony Hansen. According to Hansen, with this series Short’s brewers “will attempt beer ideas that have been repressed for years. Brewing urges that have been pushed deep, so far deep, into our brewers’ brains. Beers that are fermented with bacteria and wild yeast, beers aged in a variety of barrels, beers brewed with exotic ingredients that can only be done in very small batches.” You can read more about the launch of the Private Stache and how our team of SBC scientists is making our brewers dreams a reality by reading our blog post, The News Behind the Stache, Private Stache.


The first two beers of the Private Stache series, Alicornucopia and Pinball Whispers were released on March 21st, 2015. The label artwork for these unique brews was created by Jason Abraham Smith.


Private Stache beers will be released periodically at the pub in very limited quantities. Get the latest on Short’s Private Stache here and on our social media channels.
