Short's Brewing Co. Announces New Year-Round Beer and 2019 Beer Release Schedule

Short's Brewing Co. Announces New Year-Round Beer and 2019 Beer Release Schedule

Short's Brewing Co. in Bellaire, Michigan has announced the debut of a new year-round, flagship beer that will debut in early 2019.

Juicy Brut is dubbed a "sessionable ale" that clocks in at 4.2 percent ABV and is a session-strength version of the popular Brut IPA style that is taking the industry by storm.

Beyond that beer, Short's unveiled its 2019 beer release calendar, which can be found within the release below.


Elk Rapids, Mich. – Short’s Brewing Company is excited to reveal their 2019 Release Schedule for the first quarter including the introduction of their new flagship beer, Juicy Brut. The lineup includes a mix of old favorites, new packaging options, previously pub-only releases, and Short’s 10,000th production batch of beer.

The beginning of 2019 will bring the introduction of a new year-round flagship beer. Juicy Brut is a sessionable Ale with hop juiciness and brut dryness. This beer will be distributed in bottles, cans, and kegs beginning in February 2019 throughout the entire Short’s distribution footprint.

According to Short’s head brewer, Tony Hansen, “Juicy Brut is a light bodied ale that is very approachable, but has a lot going on. It has an amazing aroma that bubbles to the surface via high carbonation level. The flavor is a tricky balance of maximum hop juiciness flavor without being too bitter. The aftertaste is very clean and dry, making it super drinkable. Plus, the low sugar and low ABV make you feel good about having another, and another after that. Try it out.”

Short's is approaching the end of 2018 with double-digit growth and is currently assessing adding a limited number of distribution territories, something they have not done since 2016.
