Freshwater Brewing Stay Salty Watermelon Sour

Watermelon Sour

Using the term "salty" to describe someone as being irritated or annoyed has never made much sense to me. If you add salt to just about any food, whether ice cream or a tomato, you make it more delicious and tend to bring out its best elements. Surely being salty should be considered a complement - the moment you're salty is when you're at your best.

Freshwater Brewing's Stay Salty beers are a celebration of being salty, with their Watermelon Sour following on from an ultra-refreshing Passionfruit Sour. When it comes to watermelon, that fruit is present from each sip and sits between tasting like a fresh slice and a watermelon lolly while the lingering tartness and salinity make it one thirst-quencher ready to match the Northern Beaches' hottest arvos.
