We enjoyed two evenings at Short's. One with friends and the other with family. Both were a blast. Top notch beer and fantastic food.

Short's is a must for anyone wanting an eclectic mix of beer and food. A very open atmosphere for small or large parties. Doesn't look like you could go wrong with anything on the menu. Having a flight of beers (5 for $10) is a great way to sample.

Finally had the opportunity to visit Short's for lunch and craft beers. There is no way you can go wrong visiting Short's. Food is great, servers are knowledgeable and friendly. Can't make up your mind which brew to have, try a flight of 5 beers that fit your taste. It will be tough, they all are awesome.

I have been here multiple times and have not had anything that I have not liked. It is a favorite place for my young nephew. He loves the macaroni and cheese and the root beer. It doesn't matter what we have ever gotten we have never been disappointed.

Stopped in on a Thursday night with friends. Tried a couple flights, they are changing beers constantly. Several hard ciders too. We had dinner as well; someday sandwich, buffalo chicken dip, white pepper sandwich, where'd the cheese go sandwich. All our food rocked! Staff is fun and friendly. Love this place!

Great atmosphere with good music food, people and of course beer. Tried the newest Real Ale on tap and it had a grapefruit twist to it very good! Shorts Brown still my favorite!

Short's Brewing Company is very impressive. Their beer selection is top notch They have a lot of beers to choose from and they taste magnificent. I highly recommend Ziltoidia Attaxx. It's a sour beer with hints of coffee. (Absolutely amazing). Their food menu choices are diverse. My boyfriend and I had the mushroom pizza and it was divine. The best... More
