Moon River Brewing Company in Savannah, Georgia

Quality Assurance Team at Moon River Brewing

I'm thinking of moving from San Diego to Savannah for the beer...

Ok, not really, but read the "Quality Assurance Team" bit above, and you'll see why I really would not mind at all if Moon River Brewing was my local.

There isn't much going on beer-wise in Georgia, so Moon River was a surprisingly good find - just down the street from our hotel. We arrived just in time for the Friday Toast, during which each person at the bar is presented with a complimentary 4-oz pour of the bar's choosing. On this particular Friday, the toast beer was their Swamp Fox IPA:

It was also my favorite beer of theirs, and probably my favorite of the trip so far - a fantastic beer in the San Diego Pale Ale style. $3 22-oz pours of this? Sign me up...

Sherry's favorite, which I also really enjoyed, was a special peach sour brown they had on tap. Subtle Belgian yeast flavor, and just a bit of sourness - very interesting and pleasant to drink. And they get bonus points for the Chouffe glass.

Great place - highly recommended if you are in downtown Savannah and are looking for a quality beverage.

Don't forget that you can get one to go (in an eco-friendly, compostable cup, no less), as downtown Savannah is one of the few places that allows open containers on the street.
