Right in the heart of downtown Bellaire, Short's Brewery has been whetting the pallets of Michiganites since 2004. Operating solely in Michigan, Short's beer is worth the pilgrimage to not only its brewing facility, but the very reasonably priced brew pub attached. Naturally, all of Short's Brewing's refreshments are made in house, with brewers producing up to 800 bottles a day of its various styles. Short's is a perfect example of a homegrown operation that welcomes all guests to try a taste.
