The last real weekend of summer, Labor Day Weekend, cries out to be the most memorable end to summer, and the 5th Annual Craft Brew Festival in Savannah, GA is sure to linger as an outstanding memory of tastes and sounds and friends. Sponsored by VisitSavannah, the weekend kicks off on Friday, August 31, 2012 with dinner at the International Trade and Convention Center for a pairing of Coastal cuisine with Stoudt’s Brewing Company’s favorite craft brews.
Situated on the Esplanade of the Trade Center overlooking the Savannah River, the Grand Tasting Event, Saturday, September 1, is the grandest event of the weekend where you will have the opportunity to sample nearly 150 American craft beers. A beautiful color printed guide will show the location of each brewery over the festival site. Would you let summer end without food? Do not fear, there will be plenty of delicious beer festival food like soft pretzels, French fries and chicken sandwiches on hand. Are you feeling the vibe of those last hours of summer yet?
The last day of the festival is the International Craft Brew Tasting which is just as it sounds, a plethora of craft brews from around the world. Without leaving Savannah or for that matter the US, you can take your taste buds on a hop-induced tour of the world!
If you are coming to Savannah before the festival, be sure to check out some of our own favorite brew-spots. Savannah’s own local brewery, Moon River Brewing Company , can be found on West Bay Street, or for a larger selection of craft beers hop on over to The Distillery, a craft beer and gastro-pub located on West Liberty Street.
