Visited Short's on our whirlwind beer tour, April 23rd, 2009 so I'm more than a little bit behind on posting this review.

The atmosphere of the pub is awesome. They've done a great job with this old building and it's very inviting. The first thing you notice is the 16 foot high ceilings and all of the excellent woodwork (done by Joe, himself). The floor, bar and tabletops are all hand made and the quality shows through. The decor is fairly eclectic and it's a perfect fit for the pub.

Quality is top notch....in the beer, in the food, in the service and in the building itself. I was not disappointed in anything and we hung out there for about 4 hours. This year, I'd love to spend and entire day at Short's but we'll have to see how the trip planning goes.

Service was great, too. We had a couple of different bartenders and they were both very attentive. Of course, the place wasn't even 1/4 full so we had that going in our favor.

Selection was top notch. There were numerous taps available and most of the entire Imperial Series as well as a couple of Anniversary series beers...and I took a little of everything!

Food was very good, too and the menu selection was varied.

Pricing was about what you would expect from this type of establishment.

All in all, this was a most excellent place to start our beer tour and we fully intend to get back here again, even if it is a 7 hour drive.
