Erraticus 19 is a Nicie inspired masterpiece!

Erraticus 19 has officially dropped and it’s definitely hit the mark! Inspired by a cult classic brew from Short’s Brewing Company called Nicie, we conditioned this wild cider on fresh orange zest, coriander and peppercorns for a spicy kick to round out that citrusy sweetness. Look for it at the pub and Short’s Mart today!

It’s Immortal Jelly Time

It’s Immortal Jelly Time

Northern Michigan is finally starting to thaw, and what better way to celebrate than with a berry filled concoction perfect for spring! Making its third appearance on the Starcut seasonal rotation, this cider is more than a little brother Short’s Soft Parade. With its own devoted following, we’re excited for Immortal Jelly to return to store shelves for Starcut lovers near and far!

 

Immortal Jelly (5.2% ABV)  is a semi-dry Fruit Cider inspired by Short’s Brewing Company’s Soft Parade. Immortal Jelly is fermented with Michigan apples and a blend of raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. This cider is rose in color and has scents of tart fruit. Immortal Jelly’s complex blend of berry fruit flavors provides a big tart acidity up front before a semi-dry finish.

 

Both kegs and six packs are now headed throughout the Great Lakes Region and Colorado!

Find vacation vibes with Erraticus 17

Spring is nearly here, and even if you’re not able to take a spring break to a tropical destination we wanted to share this latest Wild Cider to inspire those vacation vibes. Made with local Jonathon apples, we blended them with the romantic passionfruit. The result? A tasty tropical wild treat!

Erraticus 17 is a Dry Wild Cider fermented with passion fruit. Straw in color, the head dissipates quickly but huge aromas of passion fruit, peach, and funk remain. Tropical passion fruit flavors are the star in this cider mingled with hints of peach and tart apple. Erraticus 17 has a light refreshing mouthfeel and finishes funky, tart, and very dry.

Look for a Erraticus 17 now at the Short’s Brewing Company pub, and pick up a bottle to channel that island feeling wherever you are.

Celebrating with White Skies and Elita 2018

Celebrating with White Skies and Elita 2018

This weekend we celebrate another trip around the sun of making delicious ciders here in northern Michigan. In order to mark the occasion, we’re releasing two extra special bottles at the Short’s Brewing Company pub.

White Skies (5.2% ABV)  is a golden colored Semi Dry Perry fermented with Ossia organic yeast and aged in White Oak barrels. Appealing lightly toasted oak aromatics flow pleasantly into moderate fruit and honey flavors. The overall body is light with a minimal amount of acidity.

Elita 2018 (6.4% ABV – TA – 7 g/L) is a blend of Erraticus Elita 2017 and Wild Cider aged in white wine barrels for 19 months. Light straw in color with beautiful clarity, this wild cider has prominent aromas of fruit, oak, and funk. Leading flavors of barnyard funk transform to apple and oak with a slight tropical tartness. Elita 2018 finishes dry and slightly nutty.

White Skies is in 22 oz. bottles, while Elita 2018 is available in 750 mL bottles. Find them both now at Short’s Brewing Company, and toast a cider (or perry) to another bountiful harvest and the delicious beverages that are the result.
