Saltwater Brewery is more than just a local brewery that touts the use of pure and natural ingredients — it works to give back to the landscape that encapsulates it by partnering with local and national charities who focus on improving the Earth's oceans, beaches, and reefs. Since Saltwater Brewery shows appreciation for its partnerships through benefit parties, locals can expect nothing short of a good time for the brewery's second annual party for International Surfing Day on Saturday, June 20, from 6 to 10 p.m., hosted by the Surfrider Foundation.
"At Saltwater Brewery, everything revolves around the saltwater lifestyle, and that extends to our charitable giving," says Chris Gove, President of Saltwater Brewery. "Improving our oceans, beaches, and reefs is something we feel very passionate about and, as a core focus of our business, will continue to support through sales of beer and benefit events."
To kick off your Saturday (June 20) night, there will be no cover to enjoy a live performance by blues rock band shorty the GIANT at 7 p.m. as well as the Out of Many Caribbean food truck to satisfy your drunk munchies. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, Saltwater always invites its guests to bring their own food, or have it delivered. And of course, the brewery's staple snacks, chips and beef jerky, will be available for sale.
Guests will get to sip on the best drafts at the brewery, including a special release beer named "Surfrider Session Ale" — the brewery's South End Session Ale aged on locally salvaged Seagrape wood — and have a chance to win various raffle prizes donated by the brewery and other local businesses.
In need of new surfing gear? The biggest prizes will reflect the theme of the party, which include a custom-made surfboard from Nomad Surf Shop and a surfboard from SurfTec. Other surfing related items will also be featured in addition to artwork, merchandise, and gift cards. Raffle tickets cost $1 (maximum 1,000 tickets sold).
All proceeds of special release beer sales and raffle ticket sales go to the Surfrider Foundation, Palm Beach County Chapter.
While we can't promise any surf celebrity sightings — remember, this isn't a surf competition — the brewery invites the public to help raise awareness and money for the Surfrider Foundation in effort to support the quality of our oceans. Hoping to snag a tip about Florida's best surf spots? Don't worry, there will be plenty of surfers there to add to the chatter.
