Shorts Brewing Co

PO Box 1230 / 121 North Bridge Street

Bellaire MI 49615
Phone: 231-533-6622

Beer production in 2004 was 178 barrels and grew to 2000 barrels in 2008. The first years were nothing short of a struggle. In fact it would have appeared to not be able to re-open after the winter of 2005. All the beer was going sour, due to lack of attention to the brew house and with little financial resources to get the right tools for the right job, doom seemed imminent. The pub operation required attention, and so did the deli and the office. There was simply too much for any one person to do well. Fortunately with the encouragement and strategic planning from friends and industry colleagues they pulled through. Beer was borrowed from other breweries to pick up the slack, which helped sales and bought time to get new beers brewed.

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales

3115 Broad St, Ste A

Dexter MI 48130

Phone: 734-426-4962
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales is a microbrewery in Dexter, Michigan founded by Ron Jeffries in 2004. It operates two pubs in Ann Arbor and Traverse City, Michigan. Jolly Pumpkin produces a variety of unfiltered and unpasturized "rustic country beers". Jolly Pumpkin ages their beers in wine barrels which contain naturally-occurring microbiological cultures including brettanomyces. These cultures produce a complex flavor profile in their beers, which includes flavors described as leathery, earthy, wild, funky, or even "sweaty horse hair character", and which may approximate how some beer tasted before the advent of pasteurization and industrialization. This style of beer has been described as "farmhouse ale", or American wild ale.

Bell`s Brewing Co, Inc.

8938 Krum Ave

Galesburg MI 49053

Phone: 269-382-2338
Larry Bell founded Kalamazoo Brewing Company in 1983 as a home-brewing supply shop. In 1985, it began to sell its own beer, producing 135 barrels in its first year. These first batches of beer were brewed in a 15 gallon soup kettle and fermented in open fermenters covered with Saran Wrap. The brewery today consists of two separate brewing facilities, the original Kalamazoo Avenue facility, and the state-of-the-art Krum Avenue Plant, in Comstock Township, Michigan, which opened in 2002. The Kalamazoo Avenue brewery contains an attached pub—Bell's Eccentric Cafe—and a store which sells Bell's beer and apparel, as well as homebrewing supplies. Former Bell's brewer Tom "Elvis" Fuller now owns the formerly Bell-owned Old Hat Brewery in Lawton, Michigan. As of 2005, Kalamazoo Brewing Company changed their name to Bell's Brewery, Inc., reflecting the name by which most people refer to the brewery.
