To the west of Interstate 95, on a parcel of land adjacent to the CSX railway in Delray Beach, sits a massive, white-roofed, red-painted structure. It is both a repurposed barn and an important piece of South Florida history. It is also the future home of Saltwater Brewery. As the growth of craft beer producers in South Florida hits an all-time high, experience in production brewing is hitting us hard — in the best way possible. Due South has long reigned supreme in southern Palm Beach County, with Tequesta Brewing churning out award-winning beers not far away. In Broward, Funky Buddha has become a local brewing juggernaut, while Holy Mackerel is taking experimental beers to the masses with the Mack House in western Broward. And in Miami, with Wynwood Brewing Co. opening its doors and J Wakefield Brewing preparing to open early next year, the Magic City will have its own hub of maltcentric local producers. Before long, South Florida will be a Tampa-like Elysium of heavy hitters and nano-scale operations. Read the full review on Saltwater Brewery in Delray Beach.
