Saltwater Brewery (SWB), a micro-brewery with tasting room, today announced the launch of its first canned product, Screamin’ Reels IPA.
Starting this week, six packs will be available at many liquor stores, grocery stores, restaurants and bars throughout SWB’s distribution territory (from Sebastian to Key West), soon expanding to Orlando and North Florida:
- ABC Fine Wine & Spirits
- Crown Wine & Spirits
- Saltwater Brewery
- The Fresh Market
- Total Wine
- Whole Foods
Screamin’ Reels, SWB’s flagship beer, falls in the Reef Zone of their series lineup: Coastal, Reef, Offshore (see “Depth Chart” image). It is characterized as a tropical, hoppy IPA, at 7 percent ALC/VOL, 75 IBUs, and pairs best with spicy, salty, fatty foods, which emphasize the hop flavor.
“We’re excited to expand the reach of our IPA,” said Chris Gove, President and Co-Founder of Saltwater Brewery. “Everyone can now enjoy one of our most popular beers at home, the pool, the beach, golfing or boating, which is why we love the can. With so many stores eager to sell our product, customers have easier access at a reasonable price point.”
SWB installed their state-of-the-art canning line with Palmer Canning Systems in July 2015.
“We take pride in canning our beer,” said Dustin Jeffers, Head Brewer. “Cans are lighter, more easily transported and won’t shatter when dropped. Craft beer in a can maintains its quality as it’s not spoiled by light, and keeps the beer fresher in an airtight and oxygen-free environment.”
The team is planning to can additional styles with other popular beers like Sea Cow Milk Stout and Wheat Wave.
