Founded in 2015, Bent Water Brewing Co. decided to “plant [their] passion” in Lynn, Massachusetts due to the area’s “rich industrial history and superior water source.” That precious water source quickly shaped the brewery’s core beliefs around the idea that “every beer begins with water, and with careful, creative manipulation, [Bent Water Brewing Co. bends] water into unique, flavorful brews.” After spending the last few years executing their mission and endearing themselves to craft beer fans in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Bent Water will venture out of New England for the first time and send their wildly popular beers to Florida.
Bent Water Brewing Co. will enter the Sunshine State with the following two flagship offerings (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s website):
- Sluice Juice | New England IPA – With aromatics of orange, tangerine and lime peel, Sluice Juice is our juicy, hazy and smooth New England IPA. ABV – 6.2%
- Thunder Funk | West Coast-style IPA – Brewed with four hop varieties and three different malts, Thunder Funk pours a hazy orange color with a thick head. Its nose offers mango, citrus, pine and a touch of honey. Juicy hops supported by a soft malt backbone deliver mango, passion fruit, slight biscuit and a lingering bitterness. ABV – 7.2%
“We’re really excited about getting down to Florida,” said Aaron Reames, co-founder and President, Bent Water Brewing. “It’s a really dynamic environment with a lot of enthusiasm for great beer. We also know a lot of people from the Northeast like to vacation or snowbird down there, and we think they’ll like a chance to support one of their hometown breweries.”
Progressive Distribution will handle all distribution responsibilities for Bent Water Brewing Co. in Florida. You can expect to find Sluice Juice and Thunder Funk available at select craft beer-focused establishments located throughout the state of Florida beginning in August 2020. Prost!
