Iron Fish Distillery, Short’s Brewing Announce Return of Soft Parade Vodka

Thompsonville, Michigan-based Iron Fish Distillery and Bellaire, Michigan-based Short’s Brewing have announced the return of Soft Parade Vodka. This highly anticipated release celebrates a collaboration between two of the top craft beverage brands in Michigan. The two companies, both known for their high-quality, innovative products, have combined their expertise to create a unique and flavorful spirit that is sure to please vodka enthusiasts and craft beer lovers alike.

Soft Parade Vodka is infused with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries—the exact same fruit used in brewing Soft Parade Beer. The 2024 batch is even more fruit forward and comes in at 75 proof. The result is a one-of-a-kind vodka that combines the smoothness of traditional vodka with the subtle natural flavors of real berries. No artificial flavors were added to Soft Parade Vodka. Just like real fruit, this vodka is best enjoyed fresh.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Short’s Brewing on this highly anticipated Michigan spring tradition,” said Richard Anderson co-founder of Iron Fish Distillery.

The fruit-infused vodka will be available for purchase at select retailers for a very limited time. This seasonal release, exclusive to Michigan, will hit store shelves starting in May. When it’s gone, it’s gone.

A pre-release party for Soft Parade Vodka will take place on the weekend of April 19-21 at Iron Fish Distillery. A limited number of bottles will be available in the tasting room in Thompsonville, one week prior to landing on Michigan retailer shelves.

*Soft Parade Vodka will not be available for sale at either of Short’s northern Michigan locations.
