In true Short's fashion, just one month in advance of their biggest party of the year, Short’s Brewing Company announces the addition of theSalvacious Planemo Sour Series and Slurm to their 2017 Release Schedule. TheSalvacious Planemo Sour Series will begin with the release of Anni Ale 13irteen, a dry hopped American Sour Ale with black currants. Slurm, Short’s first New England style India Pale Ale, will be distributed in May. Both new releases will be served on tap at Short’s Anni Party 13irteen.
A departure from Short’s Anni Ale ‘09 - ‘16, Anni Ale 13irteen will be released first at Short’s thirteenth anniversary party. This American Sour Ale will head to shelves and taps in Michigan and throughout Short’s expanded distribution footprint (Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin) beginning May 1st.

Fans of past Short’s releases Peachy Pom Pom and Wishful Sinful have much to look forward to. Subsequent Salvacious Planemo Sour Series releases include Exeter, a new American Sour Ale with strawberry and lemon and the eventual return of Critterless. First released in the fall of 2016, Critterless is an American Sour Ale with mango and cherry that quickly proved to be a fan favorite.

On the other end of the beer spectrum, Short’s Slurm, a juicy, hazy, New England style IPA will also make it’s debut on tap at Short’s Anni Party 13irteen. Packaged in six-packs of 12 oz bottles and kegs, Slurm will only be available in Michigan. According to the company, distribution will take place in May.

Taking place on April 29th, 2017, Short’s Anni Party 13irteen will feature 30 Short’s brews and Starcut Ciders, local food, two specialty Private Stache bottle releases (Terr Bear, a barrel aged sour Wheat Ale fermented with Northern Michigan raspberries and Bourbon Wizard, a barrel aged Barleywine), and performances by Laith Al-Saadi, May Erlewine & The Motivations, and the first ever winner of Short’s Battle of the Bands.

Tickets to Short’s Anni Party 13irteen are available now. Order today at: shortsbrew.com/anniparty.
