Fort Myers Brewing Company’s locally crafted spiked seltzer beverages, Spyk’d Hard Seltzer, has earned national recognition, voted Best Hard Seltzer by attendees of Seltzerland 2020, a national hard seltzer competition held Oct. 10 at the Westchase Golf Course in Tampa.
Over 900 attendees participated in the socially distanced tasting festival, with approximately 40,000 samples served from well-known hard seltzer brands including White Claw, Truly, Bud Light Seltzer and other craft brands. In the Best Hard Seltzer category, Vizzy Hard Seltzer earned second place and BON V!V Spiked Seltzer earned third place.
Cool, refreshing and freshly made, Fort Myers Brewing’s Spyk’d Hard Seltzer is brewed naturally gluten free with all-natural flavorings, fermented just like Fort Myers Brewing’s other popular craft brews. The spiked beverage contains 5.0% alcohol with 90 calories, 0 carbs and 0 sugar per 12-ounce pour and comes in a variety of flavors including orange, watermelon, mojito, strawberry lime and more.
“To be recognized among the top hard seltzer brands in the industry is an incredible achievement for our team,” said Rob Whyte, who co-founded Fort Myers Brewing in 2013 with his wife, Jen. “We are proud to share our craft with fellow seltzer-lovers and are honored to be named Best Hard Seltzer at the Seltzerland festival.”
