Saltwater Brewery, aFlorida-based brewery known for its awesome Edible Six Pack Rings, sent word that its expanding its brewing team with the hiring of Justin Rick, previously a senior brewer at Brooklyn Brewery.
Rick graduated from the Master Brewers Program at UC Davis in 2008, and over the past eight years has held top brewing positions at Stone Brewing, Leinenkugel and Brooklyn Brewery. Since the beginning of June, he has helped to standardize procedures, improve safety, streamline operations, grow the Beer Lab, and just brewed the brewery’s 250th batch of beer.
Dustin Jeffers will continue to manage recipe formulation and serves as Saltwater’s Director of Operations.
Third canned beer also coming soon
Saltwater Brewery is also launching its third canned beer. A crisp, refreshing, golden ale with 3.7 percent alc/vol, LocAle is the ideal all-day drinking beer.
Cans have been available in the Tasting Room since the beginning of September, and are now available throughout Saltwater’s Florida-only distribution territory.
The brewery’s canned beer offerings now include Screamin’ Reels IPA, Sea Cow Milk Stout, and LocAle Golden Ale.
