Another year, another cause to celebrate with Saltwater Brewery. The Delray Beach brewhouse is rounding off its second year in operation and is putting on a daylong celebration to, well, celebrate.

From noon to 11 p.m., the Saltwater Brewery taproom and adjacent street will be home to a plethora of beer, food trucks, homebrewers, and live music; all available with a $5 entrance fee. Expect local acts T-Wave from noon to 3 p.m., the Holidazed from 4 to 7 p.m., and Shorty the Giant from 8 to 11 p.m. For early birds, the first 500 customers will receive and be able to take home custom ten-ounce Belgian tulip glasses. Pretty badass.

In addition, It's a Cubano B, Melted Madness, and Tom's Place BBQ will serve hot food. How can you go wrong with Cuban street food, grilled cheese sandwiches, and barbecue? You can't.

New this year will be the drone beer delivery challenge hosted by Palm Beach Drone. Those with a remote piloted craft can bring home as much free beer as their Multi-Rotor aircraft can lift for at least ten seconds and load on to their truck or trailer. Let's hope the pilots drink after the contest.

For those wanting to get down on some drinks (which, let's face it, is the whole point of going), we have the tap list below. Bookmark and refer as needed during the day. Like most festivals, beer will be sold on a ticket system, so no need to sling around cash at the pouring stations.
