This Branded Hour has a dear place in CEO Joe and my hearts. Because, this is our college bar… AKA our favorite bar. In. The. World.

We spent many a drunken nights at good old Shorty’s, or “Club Shorty’s on the Waterfront” as us Kutztown folk say. (No there is no waterfront.) We also spent a ton of Happy Hour’s there also, because well… What else do you do in college?

Shorty’s is located in the heart of beautiful Kutztown, PA. A short walk down Main Street from the great Kutztown University, where CEO Joe and I spent four glorious years. (CEO Note: 4.5 for me)

It’s been a few years since we graduated, however we love to go back for our lax Alumni game and always… Have to visit Shorty’s. The place just keeps getting better and better. I am actually jealous of the current students.

Check out these beers:

Ok, actually, check out those prices! $2 Bud Heavies, $2 Bud Light, $4 Goose Island and $4 Stella!! I want to go back to college prices. You can’t beat that beer selection for those prices. You could walk in with $20, get drunk and still have enough for a chicken roll at Mama’s!

Shorty’s has been declared:


So, there is all day everyday $2 Bud Heavy, Bud Light and Mich Ultra. But, that isn’t enough for Shorty’s. During the Happy Hour times you can enjoy:

1/2 Faber and House Drinks. BOOM.

$3 Faber Bombers. Check.

$5 Red Bull Drinks. Yes please.

THEN… $6 pitchers on Tues, $5 pitchers on Wed, $4 pitchers on Thurs and $6 pitchers on Fri.

On top of amazing drinks and even better prices… Shorty’s brings us some awesome games. What’s better than drinking games? Nothing!

Bar Bingo, Trash Pong, 2v2 Pong League, Shorty’s Idol Karaoke (the best night) Trivia.

You honestly can’t beat it. Whether you are in college or are an old head like me… Shorty’s is the spot. I will drink beers all night for $2!

GRADES: (All out of 30)

Alcohol: I mean did you see those prices? Beers from $2-$6. PITCHERS as low as $4! And, half off house drinks, Faber drinks and $5 Red Bull drinks. Uh.. Yeah! SCORE: 10

Games: Again, who doesn’t love games while they drink. Even if you don’t want to play them you always love to watch funny shit when your drinking. What’s funnier than Trash Pong and Karaoke? Nothing. SCORE: 9.9

Atmosphere: Shorty’s is down in the basement of the Ktown Tavern. So it’s perfect. It is like your very own “drinking cave.” You completely get to shut the world off. Play pool in the back, sit at the high tops or dance your ass off. Shorty’s has it all! SCORE: 9.9

Bonus: The DJ is always on point. Back in our day we jammed to Lady Gaga and SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS! Now, the DJ is always bangin what kids these days listen to! Go for the drinks, stay for the party!!

Street parking available. Uber/Lyft fully available in the area… Don’t be stupid!

Overall Score: 29.8 out of 30! HIGHEST YET.. DUH, It’s Shorty’s!

Kutztown students.. Enjoy every drink at Shorty’s, they go down fast but the time goes by even faster!

Drink responsibly #ForTheBrand
