Below is cut/paste from the website. Yet, no words are needed really - this is the mecca of craft beer, casual dining and live entertainment in Antrim County Michigan. THE SHORT’S STORY BEGAN IN 2002 when a 22-year-old brewer named Joe Short registered Short’s Brewing Company as a business in the state of Michigan. Having already gained significant brewing experience at other Michigan breweries, Joe realized that his style of brewing was best suited to his own business model where he would not have to answer to anyone for putting lots (and lots) of the best possible ingredients into his brews, or for brewing specialty beers that some might consider outrageous. Joe wanted to brew bold, flavorful and extremely creative beer, and felt that people would travel out of the way to get them. Renovation of the 120-year-old hardware store began in January 2003 when Joe and several friends and volunteers began renovating and restoring the building to what it is today. All the craftsmanship was done by Joe, friends and volunteers, from the trim mold to the bar, right down to the mosaic tile Short’s logo near the pub entrance. The logo mosaic took four people three straight days to complete. The brewing equipment was purchased used. The original seven barrel pub brewing system came with five fermenters and five serving tanks. Many roadblocks and challenges threatened to cancel the project. However, with hard work, determination and many good people lending a hand, the project was finally completed after 18 months. The pub opened its doors on April 26, 2004. Of building the pub, Joe said: “Words cannot describe the heartache, stress, losses, physical and mental fatigue, and great rewards experienced throughout the struggle to bring the Short’s Brewing Company project to fruition. It is real, and remains real, because we believe in what we do and always have. Short’s is and has been supported by the immediate community and the brewing industry. Short’s Brewing Company is gaining popularity and is highly regarded among the brewing industry for its innovative brewing and tenacity to beat all odds that oppose its inevitable success.” Though the business got off to a slow start, things began to turn around when Joe’s girlfriend (now wife) Leah joined the team in 2005. Leah managed the deli and took responsibility for the creation of our delicious food menu. This gave Joe more time to concentrate on the brewery and business side of things. Soon after, Scott Newman-Bale, a.k.a. the Magician joined the team, and with his help projects, such as the 2007 Imperial Beer Series, were financed and the brewery finally became a profitable business.

Food Scene
The Landing Restaurant has undergone amazing transformations over the years. Its weathered wood docks have faithfully served Lake Charlevoix boaters for over 50 years and have been home to many different owners and businesses. Located in the calm and secluded Ironton Cove, and situated next to the Historical Ironton Ferry, The Landing has forever been a favorite stop for tourists and locals alike, casting out Jimmy Buffet tunes over the serene blue water. In 2013, when the owners were ready to move on and possibly turn the restaurant into something different altogether, lake locals Preston Parish and Bob Berg swooped in to save the landmark restaurant and keep the vibe alive and humming. Preston brought in Renee and Adam Guerriero to manage the restaurant, and the rest, as they say… is history. Together, they created a restaurant that people and families from all walks of life would want to visit every day of the week, with an inviting, energetic, and fun atmosphere. A place where food is delicious and approachable, and where service comes with a big smile and great conversation. The menu is inspired by coastal cuisine from all around the country, and features the highest quality wild caught seafood, meat, and organic produce. You can find walleye and lake perch from the Great Lakes, fresh lobster from Maine, blue crab from Maryland, sockeye salmon from Alaska, bigeye tuna from Hawaii, and shrimp from the Gulf, alongside classics like griddled burgers, nachos, and Caesar salad.
