4.25/5  rDev -7.2%

Overall:
I like this place, I like the relax feel of it. When ever I am visiting my family in the area I always make sure to go to Short's about 2-3 times. They always have a great variety of their own beer on tap. The prices seem really fair to me (of course I am use to San Diego prices).

There is no table service, but the bartenders bring you your food. The staff is always very friendly.

There are two main rooms, the bar, and the stage area. I like that bar area more, though it is always crowded. The stage area is nice, but it is very loud, and not even when a band is playing. All of the conversations carry and it get really noisy.

Beer:
As a brew pub they have a great amount of taps and great variety. The mug club is a great deal if you are a local. I got to use it because the place I was staying had some mugs.

Food:
Overall it is good. Nothing ground breaking but nice. It is typical bar food (pizza, sandwiches, mac-n-cheese) done a little special.

If you're in the area it's a place you definitely need to visit, by far the best atmosphere, food, and beer combination in a brew pub.
