Once again, Short's has been one of those stops in the L.P. that I wasn't sure when or how I would make it there, but I finally did on my recent L.P. cruise to Bells for Eccentric Day and Dark Horse for the 4 Elf Party.

I stopped at Short's in Bellaire for one reason, and one reason only. BA Wizard. This beast as eluded me for decades, if not centuries!

I arrived around 5:30 on a Thursday afternoon, and there was one table of younger (what appeared to be locals) occupying one table, and a few other locals at the bar who were very friendly. We chatted about beer, Three Floyds, Bells, Dark Horse, Jolly Pumpkin, a good beer geek experience. The bar side is rather small, but comfortable and inviting. A really nice north woods feel to it, almost rustic, yet modern. Great looking place. The other side is sort of the restaurant/stage area. Very impressive. The ramp is beautiful, make sure to look down if you check out the other side when you're there! Very awesome.

I ordered the Mac n Cheese, which was very good. The BA Wizard was fantastic, everything I had hoped it would be. A nice barrel character, nice raisin character, dried fruit, nice malt balance. Wonderful brew. Worth the drive up to Bellaire if you are in the TC area, or even in if you have to go out of your way form I-75 or anywhere north of GR. Great stop. Extra points for Ween themed menu items! Taaaake me away...to some other land!
