Shorts is my favorite brewpub in Northern Michigan. There are several other brewpubs right in or near Traverse City and I often will drive 45 minutes just to get to Short's. The beer is that much better there.
If you are a pale ale fan you will be in heavean; they usually have 5 or 6 on tap. I usually get half pints so I can sample 3 or 4 beers and then I take two growlers home. My favorites are the huma lupa liscious, hangin frank, coffee stout and the autumn ale.
The food is always good too, great sandwiches and pizza.
My only complaint is that sometimes the food takes too long - over 30 minutes - but the beer is so good I don't mind waiting. The staff is really friendly but I wish they knew more about the beer because there are always beer geeks there asking questions.
