Short’s to Short’s Paddle Launches in Bellaire

For many, summer is a great Northern Michigan craft beer and a day on the lake.

Short's Brewery celebrated both today with the Short's to Short's Paddle trip.

More than 300 paddlers took off from the Bellaire pub on a 27 mile trip to the brewery's Elk Rapids bottling facility.

Paddlers from across the country came in to paddle with Short's.

It began four years ago with just the owner, Joe Short, then he added employees and then the public.

Now it's a pure Michigan tradition.

9&10's Eric Lloyd was there as they launched and has more details.
