Short's Brewing Company

Meet Our Michigan Brewery Partner

For the first time ever, Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey and Short's Brewing Company are collaborating to bring a barrel-aged Whiskey Sour inspired beer to Michigan. Using whiskey barrels shipped from the Jameson distillery in Midleton, Ireland, Short's Brewing Company has created a cocktail-inspired limited edition brew you won't want to miss, coming in 2020.


We're so excited to partner with Jameson because we hold very similar values. Our community relationships, and the community efforts we participate in are the key driving factors for what we do. Jameson's Love Thy Neighbor and Drinking Buddies initiatives fit perfectly with our love for community interaction. Beer and spirits have brought people together for many years and working together is a great opportunity to interact with new people in each of our communities.


Bellaire is a small village nestled in the Chain of Lakes in northern Michigan. Surrounded by lakes, rivers, forests, and ski hills, it's easy to enjoy a year-round active lifestyle here. A thriving downtown community hosts the original Short's brewpub, which has been open since 2004, along with several other restaurants, shops, and craft beverage makers.
