    Who's coming to the Short's 9th Anniversary bash Saturday April 27th at their Bellaire, MI pub? Renovations are nearly complete, and they've posted a few bad ass tidbits about it.

    Turns out Bourbon Goodnight Bodacious (along with 4 other bourbon barrel-aged beers) will be poured at our 9th Anniversary Party on April 27th at our brewpub in Bellaire! Double celebration?


    Looking for a little bit more Controversi in your ALE? You’re in luck because this year we’ve decided to release the first ever DOUBLE ContoversiALE at our Anniversary Party. Akin to last year’s release of Aww Jeah (Huma x2), Contoversius Maximus will be sure to excite any IPA lover, and particularly our ControversiALE fans.

    Keep an eye out for more details about our April 27th Anniversary Party for more details about the release of Controversius Maximus.

    I plan on being there. I've been to Short's before, but never for a party. :slight_smile:

    Forgot to say I'll be there as well. Definitely a blast and some killer brews on tap always!

    HopHeadHerman - can you please tell the powers that be maybe the BA stuff should NOT come in a 16oz pint glass only. I know myself and others got bombed from drinking two BA Aphasia last year and would've loved an 8-10oz option. Not griping, just wanna stay somewhat sober enough to see Reggie later in the night!

    The wife and I will be trying to make it up there this year. Been to the pub many times just never the Anniversary party.
    I agree with steebo---the BA stuff is so delicious you have to have two!

    Ohh shit. Contact the authorities. You might as well continue on and pay a visit to the Keweenaw, and head home through Wisco. You need a good week in the north country and I miss you too.

    I only came here because I saw "Dark Lord" in the title.

    If anyone from the Royal Oak area is going and could possibly grab me some Double ControversiAle, I'd really appreciate it. I have a big family party for the new baby that weekend and there's no way I'm going to be able to go.

    Shoot me a note if you're willing to goandpickitupformebro. Any help is much appreciated.

    /end shameless begging

    I'll mention it, it all depends on our glassware--I know we do have 12oz glasses and that's what I usually always drink from.

    Yeah...If two was your downfall, I know now why I got so ripped on that stuff at Ashley 's last summer.

    A few Aphasia pours + no meat all day = Blackout disaster

    I don't think the BA stuff was in half pints at all. I asked multiple times.

    Ah, sorry, I had mostly gotten flights with some half pints to fill things out. I must have not run up against that restriction.

    Bottle share would be fun. I'll be staying in Ludington though, so probably won't happen for me.

    Sometimes bottle shares are the night before, with adults acting like adults. No one will be standing outside of Short's getting drunk.

    Had an amazing time last year and will definitely be back this year. Getting married the weekend prior, so this will be a celebration of sorts.

    Also agree with Steebo on the pour size - I think a full pour of the Wizard 666 was good enough for our entire table of 10ish people.

    On a more serious note, I'm slightly concerned my BAC will be pushing .3 by the end of the day. This party was where I wanted my Bachelor Party. Forgive me liver, for I have sinner.

    Looking forward to having all five BA beers in my belly.

    I don't believe there was a limit last year. This year may be different, I'm not sure.

    Brewery only, I'd imagine.
