About Screamin’ Reels IPA
Saltwater Brewery’s year-round IPA hits you with hops in the aroma and flavor. Screamin’ Reels is dominated by the two hops in this beer that give an earthy/tangerine mix. This beer has a light malt body so the hops shine through.
About Saltwater Brewing
Founded in December 2013 by a team of local Floridians, Saltwater Brewery is Delray Beach’s first local production microbrewery, with 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 the Founders. 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. Saltwater Brewing’s 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.
