Shorts is in the House!

This week we are proud to share our pairing and pouring night with Ben Darcie from Shorts Brewing. Shorts began with Joe Short opening his pub in a renovated hardware store in Bellaire, Michigan, (population 1,200) in the heart of Antrim County, deep in rural Northern Michigan. They opened their production facility in Elk Rapids in 2009. Their two locations are connected by the Chain of Lakes, including Torch Lake, the third most beautiful lake in the world according to National Geographic. They started selling packaged beer across the state. They are now one of the largest craft breweries in Michigan and more importantly, they employ around 175 people year-round. They are about more than beer. Community minded, they actively fund trail development, natural resource protection and access, and are currently working to address the housing crisis in their own backyard. Ben will be sharing many beers with us including a couple new to Acqua In Vino - Batch 15,000, a big, bold American sour ale with papaya and soursop and Ripple Effect, a gose ale with peach and watermelon. Join us from 5-8 p.m.
