Siesta Key already received the #1 beach designation by Dr. Beach and it is home to the restaurant that garnered the #1 spot for their Clam Chowder in the International Cook-off in New England. Now it can lay claim to another #1 – Siesta Key’s very own soda.
One of the criteria Dr. Beach takes into consideration when determining his top 10 beach list is the quality of the water. That was one of the deciding factors for the owners of Captain Curt’s when they chose their premium soda.
After a long search for just the right mix of ingredients and flavors, Captain Curt’s of Siesta Key, introduced their very own brand of soda in April of this year. According to Brad Stewart, one of the owners, they attribute the great taste not only to the ingredients in the brew but the quality of the water used in producing their soda.
The soda comes in six delicious flavors; Old-Tyme Root Beer, Granny’s Cream Soda, Crabby Grape, Sniki Tiki Black Cherry, Crabby Orange and Crabby Raspberry Lime Rickey.
Once empty, the bottle becomes a unique take home souvenir featuring their four crab character labels; Crabby, Granny, Sniki Tiki, and the Backroom Saloon Cowboy Crab.
You can also buy a cute carry out 4-pack at Captain Curt’s giftshop across the parking lot. The soda is so good, if you walk the 8-mile stretch of Siesta Key, you’ll actually hear adults and kids raving about it.
