Event Details

It’s a beautiful day in our neighborhood! Come join us for Short’s Brewing Company’s 16th Anniversary Party on Saturday, April 25th! We’re celebrating 16 years of brewing fearlessly creative beers in northern Michigan by transforming downtown Bellaire into an entire block of local love and awesomeness with Short’s brews, Starcut Ciders, Beaches Hard Seltzer, live music, and scrumptious local foods. Check out our awesome neighbors too during the party because Bee Well, Corner Bistro, Hello Vino, and Mammoth Distilling will also have delicious themed drinks for you to enjoy. To share the love, we will once again be donating revenue from the Anni Party 16 celebration to the Village of Bellaire Downtown Development Authority to assist with improvements and beautification within The Village of Bellaire. We look forward to having your help spreading the love of good beer (and cider!) made by people who care in Northern Michigan for many years to come. So don’t just sit there, start planning your visit to celebrate where we live and what we do! April 25th is just around the corner and our neighborhood is ready to celebrate with you!
