Custom beer for Shanty's 50th


BELLAIRE — Shanty Creek Resorts is partnering with Short's Brewing Co. to develop a custom beer celebrating Shanty Creek's 50th anniversary in 2013.

The new Schwartzbier brew is slated to be released Friday, Dec. 21, at Ivan's Mountainside Grill at Shanty Creek and will be available exclusively at resort outlets.

Called "Black Diamond," it features a bottom fermenting lager yeast, which produces a medium-bodied brew with a smooth finish.
