Going Micro / by Brett Holman

I'm headed up to Short's Brewing Company this weekend for some scenery and brews. It's some of the best beer made in Michigan and the pub is a super cool place to grab a cold one. Grand Rapids, MI won Beer City USA 2013 this year and the local micro brewing culture is pretty darn strong in this neck of the woods. I was fortunate to get the private tour with CFO Scott Bale a couple months ago during their annual Short's to Short's Paddle. 

 

The Elk Rapids brewery has seen some new improvements over the last couple of years but they still can't keep up with their demand.
