Short’s Brewing Anni Party 2022

April 30, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Short’s Brewing Co. Anni Party is BACK!

After two long years, Anni Party is finally back and scheduled for April 30th in downtown Bellaire, Michigan.

Every year on the last weekend in April beer lovers from across the country head to a small, rural, Northern Michigan town for a celebration of epic proportions—Short’s annual Anni Party. At least, until COVID showed up.

The first-anniversary party (2005!) was a milestone for the brewery—a true celebration of tenacity and survival and truly necessary to keep the lights on at the Pub. Over the years the party has evolved to include downtown Bellaire, with profits from the party going towards community development and beautification projects, and drawing headliners like Billy Strings, Joshua Davis, The Accidentals, Dean Ween and the Brownouts, Vulfpeck, and more.

“After making it thru the last two years it felt really important to acknowledge our collective experience and celebrate living. “Life is Short’s” is one of our mantras, and a great reminder to live every day to the fullest because you just don’t know how long it will last.” Christa Brenner, Marketing & Brand Director

There will be a very limited number of tickets available in order to accommodate folks who have been holding onto their tickets since early 2020. And if that doesn’t tell you just how awesome this party is, you’ll just have to see for yourself.


  • Saturday, April 30, 2022
  • 4-9pm with early entry (pre-party) options available
  • 40+ beers and ciders + bands, food, and fun
  • $45 general admission, $70 for pre-party
  • Proceeds from the party go towards community development and beautification in Northern Michigan

Existing ticket holders were emailed March 11, 2022, and can email [email protected] with any questions.
