April Beer of the Month – Saltwater Brewery
Delray Beach, Florida
Founded in December 2013 by a team of local Floridians, Saltwater Brewery is Delray Beach’s first local production microbrewery, with a tasting room and beer garden on sight. Using only pure and natural ingredients, each style of handcrafted beer and corresponding name is inspired by the ocean to reflect the lifestyle and passion of its founders, Peter Agardy, Chris Gove, Dustin Jeffers and Bo Eaton. Saltwater’s goal is to maintain the world’s greatest wonder by giving back through ocean based charities (CCA, Surfrider, Ocean Foundation, MOTE) and the Edible Six Pack Rings. Over 12 styles are typically available in the tasting room, while Screamin’ Reels IPA, Sea Cow Milk Stout and LocAle, are distributed in cans and on tap throughout the state of Florida. Packaging is done on-site with the brewery’s in-house canning line, which includes an in-line labeler for seasonal and special releases.
Last year, Saltwater Brewery released edible six-pack rings, a brand-new approach to sustainable beer packaging. These six-pack rings are 100 percent biodegradable and edible—constructed of barley and wheat ribbons from the brewing process. This packaging can actually be safely eaten by animals that may come into contact with the refuse. Head of Brand at Saltwater Brewery Peter Agardy says, “It’s a big investment for a small brewery created by fisherman, surfers and people that love the sea.”
