The philosophy was to bring an appreciation of craft beer to Northern Michigan with product education and creativity. Today, Short’s Brewing Co. continues the effort to educate and liberate consumers. We believe in the power of the smallness and take pride in our hands on, “mom-and-pop” approach and the energy we put into the quality of our beer, food, staff, customers and facilities. We love what we do and where we live, and have a passion for supporting and enjoying the natural resources all around us. http://www.shortsbrewing.com“
