My girlfriend and I stopped here on our way home from the Thanksgiving holiday in Valdosta. It was a nice place to wind down after the usual pace of the start of the holiday season. Seemed to be moderately full of locals -- a good sign for the day after Thanksgiving. The atmosphere was definitely beer-centric. Comfortable seating, a few TVs with football, and a warm, airy feel to the place. Casual and has some class. I liked the vibe.

Wonderful tap list. I had a Dogfish Head Pangaea and a Yeti Oak Aged Imperial Stout. Many other high quality selections were on the list, including selections from Brooklyn Brewery, Left Hand, Chimay, Southampton, Abita, Sweetwater, Terrapin, and Harpoon. Also have a nice selection in bottles.

Food was quite good. We started off with some warm pretzels served with cheese and mustard. I had the shrimp (local GA shrimp), which were fried to be just right. My girlfriend ordered a 1/4 pound burger with goat cheese and tomato --- I had a bite and it seemed to be decent.

Server was very accommodating and pleasant. She was happy I ordered the Yeti and understood that it was my dessert. :)

We had a total of five beers between us, an appetizer, two dinners, and skated out of there for around $70, including tip (20%). I would say this is an extremely good value. Note: we received $1 off each beer; it was happy hour.

I give it a high recommendation if you are in the Savannah area.

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.
