FAQ

How can I make reservations?
Reservations are made by calling (231) 498-2300 (X2) or visiting: http://www.shortsbrewing.com/reservations

How do I check in for my table?
Everything will be handled via text! Once you make a reservation, you’ll get a text confirming that. From there, you can check the status of your reservation. Please do not come into the pub until we text you to let you know your table is ready.

Where should I go while I wait for my table?
We recommend either staying in your car, or taking a stroll down main street. If you choose to wait outside the pub, please practice 6’ social distancing and wear a mask. We reserve the right to deny your reservation if you are not adhering to this. 

Do you have outdoor seating?
Yes, we do! However, as outdoor seating is in high demand, your table will most likely be located inside. If you have a reason to require outdoor seating, we suggest calling in a takeout order and utilizing the public tables that have been added to downtown Bellaire.

Where can I find a menu?
The menu can be found online, here

Can I buy merch?
Yes, you can! We will be limiting the number of guests in the mart to no more than 6 at a time and ask that you do not handle any of the merchandise directly. Entrance to the Mart will be permitted thru the main pub entrance. The Mart door will be for exit only. Merch can also still be ordered online and shipped to you directly. To access our online store, go here: https://store.shortsbrewing.com/

Do I have to wear a mask?
Absolutely, 100% yes you do. Once you are seated at your table, and eating and drinking, you are welcome to remove your mask. If you get up from your table, the mask goes back on. This is a legal requirement, not a suggestion. We want to protect our guests and our staff as much as possible. We promise to wear masks for you, please promise to wear masks for us.

What are your hours?
Sunday thru Thursday 11am – 9pm
Friday & Saturday 11am – 10pm

Do you accommodate large groups?
For the health and safety of everyone, groups must be 10 people or less at this time. No groups of over 10 will be allowed into the Pub. If you have a large gathering, we have put together some pretty rad large group food options that you can order for carry-out.
