ELK RAPIDS — The creative minds at Short’s Brewing Company have released their specialty beers for the first quarter of 2021.
According to a release from the company, it is the 16th year of the Short’s Specialty Program.
Every two weeks a different beer is released. In the release, Short’s says it is refreshing to release these specialty brews for distribution when some companies are scaling back.
“Our specialty program is something that we’re really stoked about. For the past 16 years this program is where our creativity and passion really shines for us because our team gets to bring back personal favorites and share the new beers that we’re most excited about,” Short’s Chief Innovation Officer Tony Hansen said in the release.
Short’s will have a full lineup of specialty releases in-store during the first three months of 2021. In the release, Hansen said “each specialty release is limited and might not come back each year.”
