    If I don't score DLD tickets, this is definitely a possibility.

    This is going to be much better than DLD. My wife and I will be at Short's for the Anny party for sure.

    I was bummed I didn't make it up there last year. I might need to convince my better half that this is a trip I (or we) should make this year. Maybe I should discuss this with her before I leave the house in the early morning to wait in line for 6 hours in the cold so I can spend $115 on a case of KBS on Saturday. "Remember when you asked me a while ago if these special beer releases were going to be a monthly occurance and I said no? It's possible I lied".

    will be there for sure, considering going for the paddle, but am feeling a little intimidated. would like to make DL too but shorts takes precedence. yes its definitely better.

    Ever go to both? I have and the Shorts Anniversary party is leaps and bounds better than the DLD clusterfuck (last year included). Different strokes I guess.

    I'll be there. Had a great time last year. Laid back, good entertainment, and great brews.

    That is tempting... DLD or Shorts. Almost an identical drive too.

    I would much prefer the people and the beer up in Bellaire. Short's puts on a hell of an event with out any of the DLD circus. Plenty of good people to hang out with too.

    How crazy is it at Shorts for the Anniv Party? I think the wife and I will hit Founders on Friday night, then trek up to Bellaire on Saturday

    I plan on making it up there for the party. I don't really care about the double Huma bottles, I'm sure their tap list will be enough incentive to drive up there.

    Last year it was pretty laid back, but there was not a bottle release. Hard to say. Seems every event / release is crazier than the year before these days.

    I think the comment below ensures this years event will be crazier than last years.

    I have gone 3 years in a row and it has continually been more crowded each time. Last year there was no place to sit when I got there, about an hour after it started. It was still pretty fun, but crowded. At the moment, I am not planning on going. I see a long line to get in before it opens and no where to sit unless you line up.

    I plan to come up this year for the first time. Short's has been one of my favorite Michigan breweries for a long time now, and I feel I need to pay homage to the pub. Plus, Double Huma? Hell yeah!

    20-ish I believe. It is always a lot.

    Unbelievable! I read this post yesterday then go over to my daughter's and start pitching to my son in law how we are for sure going to attend this year for our first trip to Short's and then my kid walks in and tells us that we're not going anywhere on the 28th because that is her college graduation day. Oh fate truly hates me. :slight_frown: Sorry Short's I will make it sooner or later.

    try Cedars Resort in Central Lake.... This is a shameless plug for my parents log cabin resort :grinning: . I know they closed this year for the winter so I am unsure if they are open by then.

    Otherwise I have stayed at the B&B in Bellaire with my wife and we enjoyed it, plus they are mug club members so you get to use those.
