Savannah Craft Beer

Enjoy Savannah Craft Beer when you visit the Hostess City!

Savannah Craft Beer

There are many reasons to visit Savannah, but if you are into craft beer, Savannah is definitely a city worth checking out! With so many places featuring delicious craft beer, we have narrowed it down to a handful of places, and even marked some spots on a map of downtown Savannah for our guests.

Read all about each brewery, bar, or restaurant featured below, and book your rooms for a beer tour around the Hostess City! Take brewery tours, try local Georgia beers, and more when you come enjoy Savannah Craft Beer.

 

 

Try Savannah Craft Beer at the Crystal Beer Parlor

Located on West Jones Street, the Crystal Beer Parlor is a local and visitor favorite when it comes to food and beer. Crystal Beer Parlor has been around for over 80 years now, and was one of the first American eating establishments to provide alcohol after the repeal of Prohibition. Some say that it was speakeasy during Prohibition! Check out this historical Savannah business and grab a brew and a burger! Choose from their extensive list of beers, and be sure to check out the local beers they have on tap.

 

Savannah Craft Beer

Taste local Savannah beer at South Bound Brewery!

Taste our Local Savannah Craft Beer at Southbound Brewing Co.

Southbound Brewing Company is the first production microbrewery in Savannah, Georgia. Take a tour of the brewery Wednesdays-Fridays, from 5:30pm-7:30pm, or on Saturdays from 2pm-4pm. Tours are first come, first serve and are free with a complimentary tasting. Find your perfect brew from their five beers: Scattered Sun Belgian Witbier, Secret’s Shared Wild IPA, Fade to Red Ale, Moonlight Drive Stout, and Hoplin’ IPA. Southbound Brewery offers a little taste of Savannah in a big way!

 

The Beer Growler

Do you like your beer in quantity? Well, the Beer Growler, located on Liberty Street, offers craft beers of all varieties for you to taste, enjoy, and take home in your very own growler! Some local Savannah Craft Beer can be found on their menu, so you can take home a growler of your favorite Savannah brew.

 

Savannah Craft Beer

Bring out your inner craft beer enthusiast at the Distillery!

The Distillery

The next stop on your Savannah Craft Beer tour is the Savannah Distillery Ale House, or as we call it: The Distillery. The Distillery Ale House is a true craft beer bar, as well as a restaurant, offering 21 craft beers on tap, and over 99 varieties of bottled beers! Pick your brew of choice, and select something off of their expansive menu. Beer lovers, you will not be disappointed.

 

 

 

Ampersand

Ampersand is a new bar/restaurant in town, offering delicious food and intriguing cocktail concoctions. As enticing as those options are, Ampersand also has an extensive beer list. So, after a day of shopping on Broughton Street, turn the corner onto Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, and plant yourself at Ampersand for some good brews and food.

  

O’Connell’s Irish Pub

Looking for an authentic Irish Pub on your Savannah Craft Brew journey? Well, look no further! O’Connell’s Irish Pub is the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a nice cold brew in. Take in the Irish memorabilia while sipping on a Guinness, or…dare say…if you are tired of beer, try their Pickleback: a shot of whiskey chased with a shot of pickle brine!

 

Service Brewing Co.

Another local Savannah brewery, Service Brewing Co. is a veteran owned and operated craft brewery. Stop in and check out the process of brewing with a tour and a tasting at Service Brewing Co. Their tour times are Thursday-Friday, 5:30pm to 7:30pm, and Saturdays, 2-4pm. Be sure to try their year round beers: The Ground Pounder Pale Ale and the Compass Rose IPA. Don’t miss out on their seasonal brew: the Rally Point Bohemian-style Pilsner. A portion of their revenue goes toward various charities that support service.

 

Savannah Craft Beer

Enjoy delicious burgers and beer at Green Truck Pub!

Green Truck Pub

Now, the Green Truck Pub is not located downtown, but it definitely makes our Savannah Craft Beer Tour list. The Green Truck Pub is not only home to some of the best burgers in town, but they also provide an extensive beer menu. Voted best restaurant in Savannah four years in a row, you can’t go wrong with the Green Truck Pub. Pick from their beers on tap or from the bottle and pair it with a tasty, grass-fed beef burger!

The wines featured will be available for purchase by the bottle or the glass. We are also offering a flight of paired wines for those who want to sip just a bit of everything.
