    It's pretty f'n tasty. Also be sure to try Bourbon Ben's Asthma (Imperial Oatmeal Stout with Medjool dates), Hi Dilly Ho (Barrel aged Flander's Red), Erraticus #2 (Gin barrel aged wild cider), Erraticus #5 (Tequilla barrel aged wild cider) and Erraticus #6 (Oak aged wild cider with black currants). Hope to see you all there!

    I sure hope the 3 people that kept voting for I Got 5 on it in the fan poll are able to buy up all the cases.

    I really enjoyed the hoppy holiday mix pack, it was nice to get some higher abv beers from shorts, i wish they would do more beers like that and less lower abv beers

    Pineapple pils shoulda took it. I do love shorts IPAs obvi.. but a pils would be a nice transition from hoppy island

    Taking a cue from last year's result, let's take a look:

    Raisin Apollo: Didn't make any bottled appearance
    Chocolate Wheat: only available in kegs
    Captain Fantasy: Didn't make any bottled appearance
    Goodnight Bodacious: Added to Specialty bottle lineup (edit: b/c it won)
    Dolly Dagger: Didn't make any bottled appearance
    MMMKAY: Didn't make any bottled appearance

    I am glad they released this too because I always grab a growler of Magician to bring home whenever I am up at Shanty Creek and now I can literally grab a 6 pack anytime I'm out grocery shopping. I haven't been able to drink anything out of my holiday variety pack yet because I can't put the Double Magician down.

    i can't (nor possess the ability or desire to) describe beer flavors accurately, but just cracked open the Superfluid and it smells like buttery popcorn. Anyone else get that?

    Diacetyl .. hmm thats odd. Id email shorts directly with some more info they would like to know I'm sure.

    Is it just aroma...flavor.. or both? All of my super fluids were fine from the 12 pk Delicious... lol

    interesting. i didn't realize there was a compound that could be potentially causing that. Both, but more prominent in the aroma. It still tastes great, but "butter" is the only thing i can smell/taste in this now.

    Interesting. Try another bottle and see if its good.

    Wonder if the one bottle had a infection ? or oxidation..... one bottle... doesnt add up.

    Sorry to hear you had a butterfluid haha.

    Hey, Short's fans! One of my favorite brews was just released and got overlooked between Hoppy Holidays and the Fan's Choice.

    Cup O Joe, mofos !

    From the website:

    "If there’s one rich and creamy Stout the Short’s-i-verse just can’t live without, it has to be Cup A Joe. In both 2013 and 2014 you spoke up and told us that the mitten just couldn’t survive another winter without this java filled brew. So this year, with no questions asked, we’ve brewed up another batch of Cup A Joe with to share with our fans in Michigan and beyond!

    Brewed with mountains of espresso from our friends at Higher Grounds Trading Company, Cup A Joe is rich with scents and flavors of velvety coffee.Just like that first fresh batch of morning joe, the scent of Cup A Joe is almost as intoxicating as its taste. Each year, the aroma of espresso percolating in the brewhouse wafts through our production facility and out through our doors. Making our collective caffeine addiction outwardly evident, if just for one day.

    Cup A Joe (8.0% ABV – 35 IBU) Coffee Creme Stout uses Higher Grounds roasted fair trade espresso beans in every facet of the brewing process. Prominent aromatics of malt, espresso, and cocoa are abundant, and there are robust flavors of cream and coffee. This is the perfect morning night capper.

    Cup A Joe is one of those rare brews that is totally and unconditionally delectable at any time. This “perfect morning night capper,” is headed to a Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, or Wisconsin store near you beginning this week. Find a six-pack and enjoy this Cup A Joe morning, noon, or night."


    Perfect cleanser for all the hoppy goodness out there recently!

    When I up in Traverse this summer with the in-laws, I suggested we all check out the Commons and stop for coffee at Higher Grounds "because i heard it was good stuff" without mentioning the Cup O Joe thing.
    Turns out it's a pretty cool little place.

    Anyone seen the variety pack in the hillsdale, Jackson or cold water area. I've yet to score one. My wife has been to the Meijer off 127 twice now with no luck

    The one off 127 had them out on Tuesday. The airport rd one has them but I don't think they are out yet. Do you go to that store often?

    Don't hesitate to ask the staff at these chain stores, folks. Some take longer to get items on the floor.

    Short's also just announced 24pk cans of Vintage Premium Lager only at the mart/pub.

    Seeing the frequency of canned beers picking up a bit, I'm really holding out for cans of Melt My Brain next year. They can tell it was a hot seller last year since they moved it to a seasonal, and it would be even better in cans. I would exclusively make this my summer boating beer if that was the case.

    Please, Please make it happen

    Couple of release notes, from the Facebook feed:

    Bourbon Publican Porter Release Party, Nov 25:

    "In honor of Brewski Bash and the beginning of Stout season, we’re gearing up to release another barrel aged favorite at 11:00 am on Friday, November 25th, 2016. One of the top 50 porters according to RateBeer, and scoring a solid 92 on BeerAdvocate, Publican Porter is a brew to be reckoned with. Late last winter we quietly filled just a few bourbon barrels with Publican Porter to enjoy this holiday season. Ready for the sipping, we’re stoked to be releasing this next brew as a 750ml bottle in our Private Stache series.


    Bourbon Publican Porter is our infamous Publican Porter aged in bourbon barrels for 10 months. Pitch black in color, this beer has big aromas of wood and bourbon followed by scents of dark chocolate and alcohol. Full-bodied with a velvety smooth mouthfeel, Bourbon Publican Porter tastes of bourbon and chocolate."

    $16.99/bottle, no limit. Personally could do with a sixer of plain ol' Publican, but I know a lot of guys here love the BBA stuff. Cheers to yah

    Also, Vintage Premium lager is now available in a case of cans from Short's Mart

    Finally able to get my hands on that 12 pack. Have to say stachebender is not as tropical as I remember it being on the 10th anniversary. On the plus side, loving the double magician. Really glad I picked it up as I almost passed on it
