Short's Brewing Company's culture begins with the concept of the public house or "pub." Compared to other alcohol establishments, pubs hold a unique place in the American experience. The colonial pub was the pillar of the community. Pubs were places to catch up on local business, gather a good meal, and take in a libation brewed on site by the local publican. Early taverns were full of life and comfort. The Short's Pub in Bellaire, MI is an attempt to revive that hominess and is representative of the quality, creativity, and conviviality throughout their company and products.

If beer isn't your thing, they also offer multiple wines, ciders, and meads on tap.
