The Distillery is Located on kind of the edge of the tourist area. There is some parking in front and about 4 outside tables.

The bar is on the left as you enter the rectangular room. There are tables center and to the right. There is also a small elevated area in the rear. High tin ceilings, a nice back bar, some exposed brick, sealed concrete floors and a row of pillars down the middle complete the look. They also have some beer/brewery stuff on display.

There are 4 or so TVs, so you can watch the games.

20 well thought out and diverse tap choices. Lots of bottles add to your choices. There are selections from Anderson Valley, Bells, Harpoon, Southern Tier, Victory and Terrapin among others.

Food is gastro pub style with clear Savannah influences. Try the cucumber wasabi dressing!

Service is beer savvy and friendly.

This is a must stop when visiting the area. I wish I would have had more time for a follow-up visit.

Visited on a Monday around 7:30pm. Real quiet. Sat outside on a hot day.

This may be considered the best beer bar in Savannah, but it does not compare to many other bars across the country. It still may be your best option.

A - Five tables outside. What little I saw of inside seemed nice. Sort of a dark bar with lots of wood. 3.75

Q - They seem to serve in a proper glass, but those glasses were branded randomly (if that bothers you). Only ordered on tap beer as I was a little suspect of the turnover on the bottle menu. 4

Service – Was fine. Nice maybe a little slow. He could have sold me another beer but he waited to long and moved on. 3.75

S - Supposedly the best in savannah. If that is the case, then Ouch! Good but lacking. 10-15 on tap with another 50-75 in a bottle. A wide variety but little depth and few if any must haves. Drank a local Monday Night Bed Head (very good) and a Harpoon 100 Barrel Series #50 - Citra Victorious 3.75

F - You get what you pay for. It's good bar food but don't come with expectations for something more. 3.75

$ - As noted above you get what you pay for and I thought that it was good value.
