This is *the* craft beer destination in Savannah. The beer menus are ubiquitous and extensive, the staff is knowledgable, and the ethos is based primarily around good beer. They serve food and liquor, too, but beer is the the main focus.

The decor is newly renovated glit--woody, warm lighting. All the taps are wooden and have little chalksboards on them where the names of each beer are written. Stock is rotated frequently and there's an excellent bottle selection to buffet the two dozen or so taps.

All that having been said, the place is still in Savannah, which ain't exactly a beer mecca. Nothing especially impressive was available. The only beers that you couldn't find fairly easily in the midwest were south Georgia locals, which were almost uniformly terrible. Thankfully, though, the joint don't let civic pride get in the way of quality, and so mediocre locals only took up a handful of taps.

The food was really tasty, the service was friendly, and crowd was mostly unpretentious. A nice little joint.

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.
