BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Short's Brewing Company
Michigan, United States | website

Style: Schwarzbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The new Schwartzbier brew, which translates into a German-style black lager, will be called “Black Diamond”— giving it a nod to winter and skiing. Visually, black lagers can be deceiving, featuring an opaque, black color and a full, chocolatey flavor similar to stout or porter. But unlike its dark cousins, Schwartzbier features a bottom fermenting lager yeast, which produces a medium-bodied brew with a smooth finish that will be worth savoring.

Originally brewed for Shanty Creek's 50th Anniversary.
