The 20-barrel brewhouse is the latest and newest of a range of Broward/Palm Beach breweries that have opened in the past few years, including Due South in 2012 and Funky Buddha's production brewery in 2013.

Starting off the inaugural winter season, the team at Saltwater will have a number of its core six beers on tap: an extra pale ale, an IPA, a DIPA, a milk stout, a Belgian blond, and a Scotch ale.

Brewmaster Bill Taylor has brought his brewing skills from the icy north of Neptune's Brewery in Livingston, Montana, to South Florida. "I brew my beers on style and to the best they can be," Taylor told us previously. "Growing up in Montana, I used to help my family make wine when I was a kid. It was just normal."

Once the kegs are tapped, we'll let you know how the beers taste and what to expect from this brewing endeavor. Until then, check out our preview and brewery slideshow.
