ENJOYING SAVANNAH’S CRAFT BREW SCENE
Savannah, sometimes called the “Toast-Us City” as a play on its long-held distinction as the Hostess City, continues to build momentum in the craft beer industry with a new production brewery opening in 2014 (Service Brewery) and two more slated to debut in late 2014. Here’s how to soak in all the suds Savannah has to offer in one weekend while keeping your wits about you. Thankfully, Savannah’s to-go cup freedom means you’ll never have to chug a brew before heading to the next establishment, so you can savor every last drop as you stroll on the cobblestones and under the Spanish-mossed live oaks. You and your beau or group of friends will be Savannah beer experts by the time you head home!
