M-Brew’s Brews & Bites with Short’s Brewing Company

The Michigan-only brewery pairs up with the Michigan-only café to host an informal beer tasting


M-Brew, Ferndale’s Michigan-only craft café and carry out, will be hosting Brews & Bites, a strolling, guided beer tasting event featuring Short’s Brewing Company on Feb. 10, 7 – 9 p.m.

M-Brew regularly offers 30 rotating tap handles of Michigan beer and cider, plus a limited selection of bottles. Growlers and howlers to go are also available.

The regular menu at M-Brew features pizza (round and Detroit-style deep dish), pasties, barbecue, Frankenmuth-style fried chicken, hot dogs, burgers, soups, salads, and desserts – all made with Michigan ingredients.
