Short's Brewing Company will release Speedcult Black Lager Wednesday.
The brew is a collaboration with Speedcult, a New Boston-based steel design company that creates custom metal work, and is also known for its “abusement park” with metal sculptures and a roller coaster that’s been featured on the Travel Channel and on NationalGeographic.com.
Speedcult Black Lager, which is 4 percent ABV with a 30 IBU rating, has notes of cocoa, burnt marshmallows and chocolate and, according to a press release from Short’s, finishes clean and dry “with a slight hoppy bitterness.”
Find the new beer starting this weekend at the Rust Belt Market, 22801 Woodward in Ferndale, where Speedcult is a longstanding vendor. It’s also part of the Short’s 2017 Variety Pack #5 along with Spruce Pilsner, Keep in Czech and Pineapple Pilsner.
Short's launched in 2002 in Bellaire, Michigan, and is owned and operated by Joe and Leah Short.
