Visited yesterday afternoon with my wife after sending a couple days in Traverse City & Old Mission Peninsula (more-or-less Michigan's wine region).  Although the bar seats around 8-10, there were a couple open stools (with backs - nice).  Being a Huma Lupa fan for over a year now, I brought a couple empty growlers.  Refills only 8 bucks!  They even honored my 'foreign' growlers with no problem.

The place is exposed brick walls with 14 ft. high ceilings, exposed HVAC ducts, nice woodwork and a cool bar top that reminded me of an old bowling lane - but with cooler designs, insets, etc...  The room 'live music' room connected to the main 'bar-food' room is way-cool.  No live acts while I was there, but it's nice to have the option to listen from the other side or sit in the midst of the music.  Hardwood & tile floors, good amount of scattered tables and lots of natural light from the front windows.

Selection was crazy!  Everything you could ever want (except a draft stout - no biggie though).  I even got to enjoy the first tapping of the Funkin' Punkin' right before I was about to leave.  My wife was very gracious sticking around while I 'had to' try a pint, (of which I had my 2nd growler filled)!  I tried the Noble Chaos, Black Cherry Porter, Reg. & Chocolate Wheat, Autumn Ale, and London Red - ALL SPECTACULAR!

Food was terrific.  Minestrone soup, Crostini & warm artichoke & cheese spread, warm pita chips with gourmet olives, feta spread & hummus - ALL SPECTACULAR!  The pizza & wraps looked awesome.  Our service was exceptional with warm and friendly smiles and attitudes with good knowledge of the products.   

Overall I would be the happiest man alive if Short's were in my hometown.  I'd literally be there almost everyday.  The prices are very reasonable.  The food is unique, high quality and tasty.  The beers are top-notch in every aspect and priced very fair ($3-$6).  A 'must try' if you're in the area or jonesin' for a fantastic beer destination!
