Top drops at Michigan micro-brewery

THIS last week I was in Michigan with my sister and soon to be brother in law/beer aficionado.

We trotted around the micro-breweries of northern MI and our merry little band of travelers (one gets fairly merry when you are tasting flights of 6-8 beers at every pub) found Shorts Brewing Company to be the best of the best.

Having tasted about half of the beer list, I was impressed that every brew tried was approved of, which was a first ever for Jon, the beer aficionado.

Personal favorites were the Huma-Lupa-Licious, the tastiest best balance IPA to ever pass my lips; The Magician, the best London Red I have had inside or outside of London; and the Anniversary Ale, a special blend that changes every year.

Beer lovers everywhere look out for Shorts, they are all over MI right now, so keep your fingers crossed for regional and, dare I say, national expansion.
