Strawberry Short's Cake
Style: Fruit Beer
ABV: 4.3%
IBUs: 10
# Ratings: 19,521
Score: 3.56
Strawberry Short’s Cake is a golden ale. The addition of strawberries and milk sugar transform this beer into a rose colored nectar that has hints of cream and is pleasingly sweet. Biscuit flavors and aromas arise from the great amounts of Victory malt used in the brewing process.

# Ratings: 13,738
Score: 3.88
A radiantly clear, copper-colored American India Pale Ale brewed with Amarillo, Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops. This IPA is loaded with citrusy hop aromas of oranges, nectarines and apricots. This light, yet full bodied ale seems perfectly balanced by equal parts sweet malt and fruity juicy hops. A medium bitterness lingers in the finish with a subtle earthiness.
Good Humans
Style: Brown Ale - Imperial / Double
ABV: 8.3%
IBUs: 28
# Ratings: 13,428

Good Humans is a Double Brown Ale made with Briess' Carabrown Malt, and then dry hopped with Simcoe hops. The brew has sweet malty aromas that mingle with prominent toasted caramel and toffee flavors. This beer finishes pleasingly dry, with a bouquet of hops that have slight citrus and piney qualities.
Juicy Tree
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 9.5%
IBUs: 82
# Ratings: 8,425
Score: 3.40
Juicy Tree is an experimental India Pale Ale made with blue spruce tips, juniper berries, and cranberries. Big aromatics of piney evergreen and sweet berries tingle the senses. After some slightly tart and tangy flavors up front, a harmonious balance between pleasant fruit sweetness and bitter pine is reached. A sizable malt bill, ample hop additions, and the floral qualities of American Ale yeast, all contribute to symmetry of this beer.
The Liberator
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double
ABV: 8.5%
IBUs: 95
# Ratings: 7,789
Score: 3.79
As a double IPA, this beast employs a sizable malt bill, but it is the crazy amount of hops added to the boil every 4 minutes, for 120 minutes, that really make this beer special. Fruity, floral, and piney hop flavors penetrate throughout the caramelized malt profile. Liberator is a well-balanced, full bodied brew that has a bitter finish due to the post fermentation addition of lemon and orange zest. The original batch brewed on the Bellaire system had 42lbs of hops in it, compared to Huma, which has around 20lbs of hops per batch. Today’s Elk Rapids batches have up to 138lbs of hops. The name, Liberator, came from Joe’s name for the Short’s employees who carry out our company’s mission statement as “Beer Liberators”, freeing the masses from their misconceptions surrounding beer.

Equal parts chocolate, coconut, and almonds create a brown ale delicacy unlike any other. Sweet soft aromas of chocolate and coconut excite the senses and peek curiosities. The first sip leads toward a perfect fusion of flavor, as chocolate and coconut seem to embrace the toasted almond qualities, complimenting and accentuating in impeccable unison.

A complex stout brewed with graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow, and smoked malt. The rich hearty flavors seem to take their turn as the subtle graham aromas lead pleasantly into sweet flavors of marshmallow cream covered in milk chocolate. All is followed by a slight lingering flavor of smoke when you add a flaming marshmallow garnish, which is strongly encouraged.

Huma Lupa Licious
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 7.7%
IBUs: 70
# Ratings: 70,456
Score: 3.75
Huma Lupa Licious’ name derives from the hop plant, Humulus lupulus. It is Short’s best-selling India Pale Ale. Huma Lupa Licious is brewed with five different hop varieties, providing a punch to the palate. Between the beer’s abundance of hops, and the type of hops used in its creation, it has a delicious bitter taste and enticing citrus aroma. The hearty malt bill melds well with the hops for a perfect balance. Huma is the product of Joe Short wanting to create the ultimate IPA experience. Originally, Huma Lupa Licious was named Humulus Lupulus Maximus, and went through several recipe changes before settling on the recipe we know and love today.

A light bodied American Pale Ale with prominent floral and orange peel-like hop aromas. Only the slightest grainy malt qualities are detectable, as assertive bitter flavors of citrus rind and dandelion leaf take hold. The finish lingers with a waning bitterness that's not overly dry.
Bellaire Brown
Style: Brown Ale - American
ABV: 7.0%
IBUs: 19
# Ratings: 26,197
Score: 3.73
Bellaire Brown is a full-flavored brown ale that derives sweet caramel and toasted qualities from four different kinds of malt and specialty grains. Select hop varieties create an enticing aroma and dry finish. Bellaire Brown is very dark and rich, which makes it hard to classify as a brown, but it is certainly considered a delicious masterpiece. Bellaire Brown was originally created to appeal to people who enjoyed drinking coffee, and to beer drinkers who are not interested in hoppy options. When Joe Short was creating the Bellaire Brown recipe, he desired a beer that was meatier and burlier than most browns. Bellaire Brown is a great gate-way beer for drinkers to be introduced to darker beer varieties.
ControversiALE
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.6%
IBUs: 65
# Ratings: 21,208
Score: 3.67
ControversiALE, FKA Hangin’ Frank, is a tribute to Simcoe hops. Simcoe hops are extremely sought after and limited, so Short’s is excited to share this unique brew with Michigan craft beer lovers every spring. The earthy, citrus and pine-laced nose is instantly delectable. Large amounts of toasted grains and high alpha hops form a perfect union that creates the cool sensation of toasted sourdough covered with zesty grapefruit hop marmalade. ControversiALE has an enchantingly straightforward hop aroma, flavor and overall intensity through ample additions of only Simcoe hops. While this beer is hopped like an IPA, it drinks like a pale ale. The light, refreshing qualities of this beer make it perfect for springtime.
Freedom of '78
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 8.0%
IBUs: 70
# Ratings: 19,647
Score: 3.83
The orignal recipe was developed through a collaboration with Half-Acre Brewing in Chicago. A nice medium bodied IPA with a wonderful bright clarity and pleasing bronze hue. The aroma is a unique fusion of citrus fruit combined with subtle pine qualities. The distinct characteristics of the guava nectar are impossible to miss as the sharp sweetness and slightly tart flavors snap across the palate. Comparable attributes of tangerine, nectarine, and even some faint honey flavors are detectable. The finish quickly turns to a bitterness expected of an IPA, that resonates and turns dry during prolonged tastings. Freedom of the body, freedom of the mind, this bitter nectar does it all.

An American Double IPA with a large, but basic malt bill, that explodes with a perfume of resiny hop aromas!

# Ratings: 8,989
Score: 3.90
Goodnight Bodacious is a Double Black India Pale Ale with the maltiness of a Barleywine and the hoppiness of an IPA. A rich, hoppiness dominates the aroma, with earthy and loamy scents. A medium body presents big, bitter black barley and roasted coffee flavors, with subtle complements of dark fruit and green hops. Strong alcohol flavors and pleasant warming qualities become more noticeable as the beer approaches room temperature.
Hopstache
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.75%
IBUs: 85
# Ratings: 8,194
Score: 3.87
Hopstache typifies the bold and almost obnoxious ability that certain American hop varieties (Simcoe, Amarillo, and Citra) have to provide citrus flavors and aromas to our beloved take on pale ales. The aroma is dominated by fruity ale yeast esters and fragrant earthy grapefruit tones. Initial malt sweetness is quite low, tart citrus fruit and floral hop qualities overpower any other perceived flavors. Aided by the addition of grapefruit zest, the finish is a sharp hop shock that electrifies the mouth, yet surprisingly enough it's not overly bitter.
Anniversary Ale

IBUs: 60
# Ratings: 7,302
Score: 3.83
Anniversary Ale is a high-gravity wheat wine made with blood oranges. Flavors range from the spiciness of green peppercorns to the tang of blood orange zest. Aggressive dry hopping of Simcoe hops amplifies the citrus overtones and spiciness found throughout the beer. Anniversary Ale typifies Short’s Brewing Company by embodying all of the complexities that come along with another year of brewing.
