Saltwater Brewery, Delray Beach, Fla.

Delray Beach, Fla.—Saltwater Brewery really embraces local in its brew. They have a Belgian-style beer called Wild Seas made with wild caught Florida yeast. They caught the yeast by exposing their brew to the elements so the yeast from Florida air could settle in the liquid.

Last month I visited Saltwater Brewing Company with some friends to purchase a Flight (four 4 oz. glasses) of beer. The business is located in a giant red barn-like building that is visible from the southbound lanes of I-95.

Inside the wood continues from floor to ceiling ending with a large bar featuring many taps and a window at the back overlooking the brewery.

Saltwater Brewery, a microbrewery that makes hand crafted beers opened its doors several years ago to a thirsty public. Today its beers can be found on guest taps at many South Florida restaurants and bars.

The Flight (pictured above) contained the following

From left to right
Captain Tyler Desyumo (3.8% ABV), Session beer made with Maple Syrup and Jalepeno. It had a surprising butterscotch flavor.

Wild Seas (6% ABV), Blended wild Ale made with wild caught yeast infused barrel, making it a Belgian style sour. It was mouth watering with low bubbles and went well with my burger.

Sea Cow (6%), Milk Stout had a smoky caramel flavor to it with just the right amount of bitter.

Screamin’ Reels (7% ABV), Indian Pale Ale (IPA) with the proper amount of bitterness expected from an IPA.

If you go, they are located at: 1701 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, FL 33444
Their phone number is (561) 865-5373

Saltwater Brewery is open from 12 noon to 11 pm Sun. to Thurs. and an hour later on Fri. and Sat.
