How much awesome can you pack into three months? If you’re Short’s Brewing, the answer is a whole heckin’ lot. The brewers year end releases have been announced, and with a line up this good, we can only imagine what Short’s has in store for their 20th anniversary next year..

“When your beverage library has over 1000 recipes (and counting!), it is an exciting challenge to determine the right libations to share with our fans. When I look at this season, I get all fired up, both personally and professionally. This lineup is so dang Short's-y!” Exclaimed Kerry Lynch, Sales Director for the brewery.

From the return of Seasonal favorites like Mule Beer and Pure Michigan Winter Pils to small-batch, limited-release rarities featuring unique and innovative ingredients (with a variety pack thrown in for good measure), Short’s Brewing is doing what they do best: getting weird in a big way with more seasonal releases than most brewers can squeeze in over the course of an entire year.
